LI-COR Odyssey® Sa


Odyssey® Sa

The Odyssey Sa Infrared Imaging System offers the advantages of infrared imaging and the flexibility to handle both plate-based assays and quantitative Western Blots. For walk-away automation with plate-based assays, the Odyssey Sa can be configured to work with a 30- or 50-plate automated stacking system.  
The Odyssey Sa also accepts individual membranes or gels providing an affordable solution for labs doing quantitative Western blots and In Cell Western analysis.  
The Odyssey Sa Imager has the same two-channel infrared detection specifications as the more versatile Odyssey Infrared Imager. It yields the same excellent sensitivity (1-5 pg with purified transferrin) and broad dynamic range (4-5 logs). The Odyssey Sa Imager is compatible with the BioTek® BioStack™ Automated Microplate Stacking System (either 30-plate or 50-plate configurations) when installed with the Odyssey Sa Express Software for automated plate readout.
