iBright Analysis Software

Streamline image analysis with our complete western blot and gel analysis software

Invitrogen iBright Analysis Software expands upon the core set of on-instrument analysis functions, with more in-depth image adjustment and data analysis capabilities. iBright Analysis Software was designed to complete the end-to-end intuitive imaging experience offered by our iBright Imaging Systems platform.

iBright Analysis Software is a free software for organizing and analyzing blot and gel images captured on iBright Imaging Systems. The software is available in two formats: a desktop version (both PC and Mac OS compatible) and a cloud-based version accessible via web browser through our Connect platform. iBright Analysis Software is regulary updated by our software engineers to add new features and to continuously improve the user experience.

iBright Analysis Software features a simple interface, condensed into four main workspaces: gallery, adjust, analyze and annotate. Whether making a simple adjustment for a presentation, or to compare subtle differences between important samples, our software has you covered.

Software workspace Function Features
Gallery Explore and organize your images View, store, sort, search, select, import, export, and create reports
Adjust Fine-tune and refine your images for meetings and presentations Rotate, straighten, flip, zoom, crop, invert, adjust contrast and gamma levels, apply false colors
Analyze Gain a deeper understanding of the data Auto-analysis (automatically detect lanes and bands), manual analysis (user-defined), quantitation (relative or absolute), and normalization using total lane protein and housekeeping proteins
Annotate Label your image Label analysis objects (Frames, lanes, bands & regions) through data table and/ or add text, boxes and arrows using annotation tools

Manage your images with ease

The Gallery workspace can be sorted based on application, date, or file name, so your data is readily retrievable and organized. Image preview is adjustable, so you can scan through closely related data without opening each image individually.

Analyze your data quickly

Image analysis, which can be complicated and cumbersome, can be simplified to only a few clicks in the Analyze workspace in iBright Analysis Software. Automatically analyze up to 4 mini blots or mini gels at a time from a single image for increased throughput. Powerful algorithms are designed to consistently and accurately select and identify lanes and band boundaries for molecular weight estimation, densitometry, or normalization. Adjustments can be made to band detection sensitivity to fine-tune for low-expression proteins. Reports can be exported to PDF format, or the raw data can be exported to Excel software for further analysis. Images an also be analyzed manually if preferred.

Label for a more complete picture

The Annotate workspace allows the user to label the image. All annotations will appear in magenta in the viewport. All annotations added on the image using annotation tools and annotation table will be included in the exported image and report.

Bring it all together with a complete report

After analysis, view your images alongside your data report. Data can be filtered to view only desired parameters.

Analyze your data without being connected

The iBright Analysis Software desktop application is available for anyone to download, and is compatible with both PC and Mac operating systems. The desktop application allows you to work without the use of internet while still having access to all of the capabilities of our cloud-based application.

Cloud connectivity helps increase productivity

Images captured on the iBright Imaging Systems can be exported directly to Connect, our cloud-based platform. Conveniently access via web wherever an internet connection is available. Furthermore, with Instrument Connect in Thermo Fisher Connect you can determine instrument status, firmware edition, and usage history, providing an extra degree of control over the monitoring of your investment.

Each Connect account offers 1 TB of cloud storage at no charge. Link user accounts on a Bright Imaging System to a Connect account to directly upload data to a personal gallery on Connect.
