MUNICH –Analytica 2012– (April 17, 2012) – Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., the world leader in serving science, is featuring the new Thermo Scientific myECL Imager during Analytica 2012. It revolutionizes the capture and analysis of chemiluminescent Western blots, stained protein gels and nucleic acid gels by simplifying the entire imaging workflow. The company is featuring the myECL Imager within Thermo Scientific booth 101/202 (Hall B1) during Analytica 2012, being held April 17– 20, in Munich

The myECL Imager incorporates advanced charge-coupled device (CCD) technology that results in greater sensitivity of X-ray film, with a significantly higher dynamic range. The intuitive touchscreen controls with on-board computer simplify the image acquisition process while improved sensitivity and small instrument footprint make the myECL Imager an effective substitute for the laboratory darkroom.

The Thermo Scientific myImageAnalysis Software supplied with the instrument provides a suite of programs to analyze nucleic acid or protein images, including automatic lane and band identification and molecular weight overlay analysis programs. The myImageAnalysis Software saves image files in a non-proprietary format for easy sharing with colleagues. Images and data reports can be exported directly to Microsoft Word, Excel and Powerpoint programs for further analysis and presentations.
