Odyssey® Infrared Imaging System - Basic from LI-COR Biosciences


The Odyssey Infrared Imaging System introduces a new standard for Western blot analysis – direct infrared fluorescence detection. Infrared detection gives you the quantitative analysis and wide linear dynamic range that chemiluminescence and visible fluorescence cannot. Strong and weak bands on the same blot are accurately detected without multiple exposures or time in the darkroom, and the signal is stable indefinitely. The Odyssey System gives you sharp, reproducible bands without fuzziness or “blowout”. Bands hidden by overexposure with chemiluminescence become clear when imaged with Odyssey.

Odyssey is uniquely equipped with two infrared channels for direct fluorescence detection on membranes. With two detection channels, you can probe two separate targets in the same experiment. Quantification accuracy is increased when the second color is used for normalization.

Odyssey provides a flexible, multifunctional platform to accommodate a variety of applications, so you get the data you need right away from Western blots, Coomassie gels, EMSA experiments, and cell-based assays.
