Cyclone Plus Phosphor Imager


Autoradiography

The Cyclone Plus Storage Phosphor System

The Cyclone Plus Storage Phosphor System is the only personal radiometric phosphor imager for quantitative filmless autoradiography. It is able to provide high resolution filmless autoradiography of electrophoresis gels, tissue sections, thin layer chromatography samples, bolts and gene arrays right on the benchtop. It is compact, quick, easy to use and affordable. It offers unmatched flexibility and sensitivity for all the radiometric imaging application in the lab. The highly efficient storage phosphor screens take the place of autoradiography filmto capture and gather the activity of samples that are exposed in regular film cassettes. Cyclone Plus uses a helical scanning system and modern confocal optics. It has a distinctive light collection design that efficiently catches the signal for higher sensitivity and a broad linear dynamic range.

 

Key Features and Benefits
