  • Sensitive: Reveal your protein of interest in unprecedented detail



  • Applications

    • Femtogram-level: stunning detection of faintest signals
    • Uvipure© technology: enhanced UV for EtBr and all safe stains
    • Confocal discs: boosted detection of fluorescent signals
    • Multiplexing: up to 7 excitation simultaneous channels
  • Revolutionary UV-LED Pad

    Red is the new black
    The standalone design of IRIS is a testament to its practicality and user-friendliness. It is easy to clean and compact to fit seamlessly into your laboratory environment. Inspired by the red square in our logo and the distinctive shape of the DNA molecule, its design connects IRIS to the very essence of molecular research, symbolizing the pursuit of knowledge and discovery.

    Get the Cambridge Touch
    Enjoy the comfort of the widest touch screen. With its impressive size of over 40 centimeters, the Cambridge Touch screen offers an immersive and smooth viewing experience. The screen is also adjustable, with a remarkable resolution to ensure that every detail of your molecular imaging experiment is vividly displayed.

    Avoid time consuming manipulation
    The mobile sample tray has been designed to avoid time-consuming manipulations ensuring that you can handle your samples with ease. Additionally, the Alliance IRIS imager features a full door aperture and slide-out trays, specifically engineered to alleviate the discomfort usually associated with draw-out transilluminators.

    Don’t miss the next UV-LED Pad generation
    In the spirit of a sustainable environment, UVITEC Cambridge is the first to introduce a UV-LED Pad technology to ensure a smooth transition from the traditional UV-Pads. UV-LEDs have a longer lifespan: they can operate for thousands of hours without significantly losing light intensity and efficiency. In addition, these LED conditions prevent damage to your most sensitive samples.

  • Wider Lens Aperture For Unmatched Sensitivity

    Collect more light
    IRIS has its eyes wide open: its lens features an impressive
    f/0.75 aperture, which allows it to capture an incredible amount of light. As you may know, in optics, the smaller the focal number, the more light your device collects.

    Get the best quantifiable pictures
    IRIS is equipped with a state-of-the-art camera that incorporates a remarkable 9.2-megapixel resolution. This high resolution ensures that you can discern even the finest details in your imaging experiments. In addition, our system provides pictures with high density of grayscale within the camera, enabling you to precisely analyze your samples. The closer you get to 65,535 grey levels, the more quantifiable information you have access to.

    Detect even the weakest signals
    IRIS’ optical system is further enhanced by its exceptional dynamic range, with an optical density (OD) of 4.8. This means that IRIS can capture a wide range of signal intensities without losing crucial information. Whether you are working with faint signals or intense ones, IRIS can accommodate your needs with ease.

    Keep it cool
    To maintain its sensitivity, IRIS relies on a sophisticated cooling system, using a three-stage Peltier normalized camera. This cooling system ensures an impressive -30°C absolute cooling, minimizing background noise and detecting your lowest signals.
