Uvitec FireReader V10

Scientific High End Gel Doc Camera

Overview

FireReader V10’s high resolution specifications boast the highest performance camera available for gel documentation. Based on a 16-bit pixel depth, the camera’s superb quality offers pictures with up to 65,535 grey levels that enrich your research level data.
The dynamic range of up to 4.8 orders of magnitude gives users greater confidence when imaging even the most difficult fluorescent samples.

FireReader V10 is ideal for both documentation and quantification. Thanks to our proprietary technology, its superb 6-megapixel native resolution can be extended to 10 megapixels for the most resolution-demanding applications.
FireReader V10 is a new concept of Gel imaging acquisition: fully automatic (light, lens, focus, zoom), you just need 1 click to take the best picture.

Uvitec-1D software is easy to use and sophisticated enough to allow ultra-precise optimisation when capturing the image. With, for instance, a live-3D view to set up the exposure time and control the saturation and ensure that all bands are quantifiable. You can also decide to select the efficient “auto-exposure“ mode for a safe and rapid image acquisition and use the editing options of the software to enhance the image, annotate, archive and analyse.

Images may be enhanced in a great number of ways including contrast and brightness adjustment, mirror imaging, image inversion and annotation (text and symbols). Displayed images can be converted into several colour scales (red, blue, green and multi-coloured palette) without affecting the data before being analysed to determine molecular weight and optical density.
