Another major laboratory installs an Aplegen Gel Documentation system
Who is becoming the fastest growing gel documentation company?
Yet another successful installation of an Aplegen gel documentation system. The Omega Lum C is fast becoming the system of choice by scientists around the world for the imaging of gel and chemiluminescent blots.
Dr. James Tollervey and his team at Aelan Cell Technologies in San Francisco have recently installed an Omega Lum C in their laboratory. There they focus their work on the characterization and development of novel biomarker tools to aid in the detection and treatment of age-related pathologies. The team utilise numerous molecular biology approaches and are using the Omega Lum C gel imaging system for the daily imaging of Western blots and DNA gels.
When setting up their new laboratory, bench space was at a premium, and no dark room area was available. The Omega Lum C, with its compact footprint and all-in-one features, was an obvious choice for them. Having previously worked with standard film developers, Dr. Tollervey was particularly impressed with the excellent sensitivity and resolution of the Omega Lum C. He also found the integrated software simple to use, allowing for the generation of publication quality images every time.
The Omega Lum C is just one of the family of gel documentation systems from Aplegen that range from simple entry levels units right up to higher end multiplexing systems. The main feature of all systems is the compact design coupled with industry leading specifications. The competitive pricing of all the systems make them the obvious choice for many laboratories.
Says Dr Tollervey: “Overall I’m very happy with the purchase of our Aplegen imaging system. It has a great range of features, which have really streamlined our gel imaging process”.
