UVP ChemStudio (formerly ChemiDoc-It®2 )

The UVP ChemStudio provides a dynamic instrument for capturing picture-perfect chemiluminescent blot and fluorescent gel images. High-resolution and sensitive imaging of chemiluminescent blots and fluorescent gels. No film is required for imaging. Select from several cameras that utilize cooling in the detection of chemiluminescence Western blot and other imaging samples requiring high sensitivity and camera cooling.

Capture vivid gel & blot images with easy to use integrated touch screen and software.

Main Features

The ChemiDoc-It™2 Imager is an upgradeable system for imaging and quantitation of Western blots, immunoblots, protein blots, DNA gels, Coomassie Blue, GelGreen, SYBR Green and other stains. Image capture and analysis is done using VisionWorks® Acquisition and Analysis software, on an external computer. UVP's imaging systems feature modular and customized options for enhancing the user experience.

  • Upgradeable to support RGB, Near IR and other multiplex applications using the UVP eLITE MultiSpectral Light Source.
  • Choice of two deeply cooled (-57⁰C) cameras for low noise in low light applications Overhead white lighting is included, with optional UV and blue light.
  • UV transillumination is included with the option for 1 UV (302nm) or 3™UV (254, 302, and 365nm) wavelengths and sizes ranging from 21x26cm to 25x26cm.
  • Wide imaging area (field-of-view) for gels and blots of various sizes (up to 25 x 26 cm). Field-of-view, depends on camera and lens selected.
  • Four-position manual filter wheel (Ethidium bromide filter included).
  • The full package VisionWorks™ analysis software is included for use on an external computer. Analysis functions include, 1D lane and band analysis, histograms, lane profile graphs, total area density, Western blot densitometry and data reporting. Support for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance is available.
  • External computer is sold separately and software is compatible with Windows 7 and later versions.

Cameras and Optics:

  • Cam 815 camera: An 8.1 megapixel camera features an f/0.95 lens, for fast and high sensitivity image capture.
  • BioChemi 515 Camera: A 2.1 megapixel camera for affordable option with a zoom lens.
  • All lenses available with the option for manual or automated control.

Service and Warranty:

  • Three-year manufacturer warranty included.
  • UVP offers outstanding technical/application support and service.

Accessories included:

  • Chemi tray for placement of blots.
  • Unlimited copies of VisionWorks™ Acquisition and Analysis software.

Accessories for upgrades:

  • UVP eLITE MultiSpectral Light Source: for overhead excitation of fluorescent multiplexed Western blots, DIGE 2D gels, PAGE gels and more. Filters are available for specific wavelength requirements.
  • LED White Light Plate: for white light transillumination applications such as Coomassie Blue, Silver stains and others.
  • Visi-Blue™ converter plate: for blue light gels, converts UV to 460-470 nm
  • For overhead UV lighting: UV Lamp Modules. Two lamps are recommended.
  • When calibration of the light source in the system is required, the Luminescence Calibration Standard can be used to emit a very stable light over four orders of magnitude. The standard can be used for validation of measuring equipment, including cameras.
