Capture images and analyze data from western blots and gels efficiently and easily with the Invitrogen iBright CL1000 Imaging System. This high-performance instrument enhances the imaging experience through powerful hardware, advanced automated technologies, and an interface that is easy to use for researchers of all experience levels.

The iBright CL1000 Imaging System is capable of imaging chemiluminescent western blots in addition to stained protein and nucleic acid gels. We also offer the iBright FL1000 Imaging System, which features the same imaging capabilities as the iBright CL1000 Imaging System, but also offers fluorescent western blot imaging capability.

Features of the iBright CL1000 Imaging System:
9.1 MP cooled CCD camera: high sensitivity and dynamic range to help enable the detection of subtle differences in samples
Smart Exposure technology: provides rapid determination of optimal exposure time to help minimize the need to repeat exposures to acquire the desired signal
Simple interface: clear layout of functions and features combined with a 12.1-inch capacitive touchscreen for a smooth imaging experience
Advanced automated features: automatic sample rotation, automatic zoom, and automatic focus help streamline image capture
22.5 x 18.0-cm field of view: large field of view for high-throughput imaging (image up to four mini or two midi blots at a time)
Green LED-based transilluminator: effectively excite popular DNA dyes such as ethidium bromide and Invitrogen SYBR Green dyes with an alternative to UV-based transilluminators
Flexible connectivity: export captured images via ethernet connection, Wi-Fi (with optional accessory), USB, or directly to Connect cloud-based platform
Multiple image analysis options: perform basic and routine image analysis directly using the instrument software, or for more in-depth analysis use iBright Analysis Software, available in both desktop and cloud-based versions
