The Thermo Scientific myECL Imager is a stylish, powerful and easy-to-use blot and gel documentation instrument for sensitive, multimode image capture and analysis via an intuitive touchscreen interface and advanced integrated software.

The myECL Imager revolutionizes image acquisition of protein and nucleic acid blots and gels detected via chemiluminescent, colorimetric or UV light-activated fluorescent substrates or stains. The compact benchtop instrument uses UV and visible light transillumination, specialized filters and advanced CCD camera technology to capture images with high sensitivity and dynamic range. The large, 10.4-inch touchscreen and on-board computer provide an elegant user-interface to program acquisition settings and manage (store and share) image files. Also included with the instrument is a five-computer license for the Thermo Scientific myImageAnalysis Software, a complete and powerful analysis tool.

The powerful and easy-to-use myECL Imager delivers a complete set of high sensitivity Western blot and gel documentation tools through a streamlined and intuitive touchscreen interface, convenient acquisition options, and analysis software supplied with the instrument. The myECL Imager incorporates advanced CCD technology that results in greater than two times the sensitivity of X-ray film and 10 times the dynamic range. The imager can be used in chemiluminescent, ultraviolet and visible modes to image Western blots, stained nucleic acid gels or stained protein gels.

The instrument is controlled with an easy-to-use touchscreen interface that simplifies image acquisition. Researchers can set custom exposure ranges with up to five different exposure times or use preset versions. Images are stored to an internal drive in a nonproprietary data format for easy sharing. The file management system has sort and search functionalities to find locally saved images. Files are easily transferred to any computer using one of three USB ports and the included 2GB Flash Drive or through the Ethernet connection at the back of the instrument.

Analyze images by adjusting display settings (saturation, invert, contrast) on-screen with the imager to ensure that the captured data are of suitable quality for the intended use. Then, once the original image is transferred to another computer that is running the myImageAnalysis Software, it can be fully analyzed to identify lanes and bands, overlay molecular weight markers, calculate molecular weights, measure densitometry, etc.

The myECL Imager is easier to set up and use than most instruments of its type, allowing researchers to adapt and use the new technology quickly without the need for an engineering visit. The imager eliminates the need for a darkroom, replacing it with a machine that has a small footprint. Unlike film, the myECL Imager does not require the use of silver-containing chemicals that require hazardous materials handling and disposal.
