Additional Information
Capture images and analyze data from western blots and gels efficiently and easily with the Invitrogen iBright CL1500 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 CL1500 Imaging System supports the main imaging applications of chemiluminescent and colorimetric western blots, in addition to fluorescent stained nucleic acid gels, fluorescent stained protein gels, colorimetric stained protein gels, and colorimetric membrane stains. We also offer the iBright FL1500 Imaging System, which features the same imaging capabilities as the iBright CL1500 Imaging System, but also offers fluorescent western blot imaging capability.

Features of the iBright CL1500 Imaging System include:
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
High Dynamic Range Imaging*—Smart Range HDR combines optimized short and long exposures into a single HDR image to capture an extended linear dynamic range and providing high-quality non-saturated data for improved quantitation
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
Expanded Imaging Applications*—capture and analyze visible, chemiluminescent or fluorescent stained colonies on single- or multi-well cell culture plates using the optimized imaging channels and onboard analysis workflows
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 densitometry, quantitation, and normalization directly using the on-instrument software, or for more in-depth analysis use iBright Analysis Software (available in both desktop and cloud-based versions)

*Certain functions are made available through firmware. Ensure your system is running the most up to date firmware version.
