Digital Filmless Autoradiography
Autoradiography is used in molecular biology or pharmacology to study gene expression, DNA-protein interaction, cell analysis and characterization. This radio isotopic technique, which is a standard in a laboratory, uses tagged nucleic acid, protein, cell or tissue with radioactive labels. Film autoradiography is not very beneficial, as it can not allow an accurate quantitative and qualitative analysis.
CIT's DR3000 enables digitization of autoradiograph with high sensitivity and resolution. It enables quantification and visualization of both weak and strong signals. All this protocol can be performed in normal condition (no darkroom needed). Thus, it increases workflow efficiency in the laboratory and also facilitates the storage.
Advantages of Digital Radiography
> Reduced exposure time
> Greater sensitivity
> Accurate quantification
> Increased laboratory productivity
> Elimination of chemicals, films and dark rooms
> Minimized storage space
> Electronic data archiving with on-stream management
