Carestream Molecular Imaging Releases New Versions Of Its Gel Imaging Systems For Life Science Research

KODAK Gel Logic 112/212 Imaging Systems Deliver Improved Data Acquisition for In Vitro Optical Molecular Imaging

November 15, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 15 — Carestream Molecular Imaging, a division of Carestream Health, Inc., released two new gel imaging systems to advance its popular line of Kodak Gel Logic Systems for in vitro applications in life science research laboratories. The Kodak Gel Logic 112 and Kodak Gel Logic 212 Imaging Systems deliver improved image quality and data acquisition for documenting and analyzing electrophoresis gels, colormetric blots, plates and more.

Both systems are equipped with an improved, scientific-grade 1.4 million-pixel CCD camera that can accumulate up to 14 bits of data—enabling users to extend the dynamic range to detect and quantify very dim as well as very bright signals (e.g. bands) in the same image. Additionally, software support has been added for the latest operating systems, including Macintosh OSX (version 10.5), Windows XP and Windows Vista Professional. 

“As a market leader in gel imaging—with more than 20,000 gel documentation systems installed worldwide—we are constantly striving to improve the value of our systems,“ said John DelliSanti, President of Carestream Molecular Imaging. “Our latest Gel Logic Systems continue our legacy of delivering high image quality and real-time, economical performance.”

Kodak Gel Logic: A System for Every Need

Carestream Molecular Imaging offers a complete line of gel imaging systems spanning the full spectrum of researchers’ image analysis needs, workflow requirements and budget parameters.

  • The Kodak Gel Logic 112 is an economical, modular gel imaging system that delivers superb image quality and analysis performance.
  • The Kodak Gel Logic 212 System—with its real-time preview, speed, and integrated illumination cabinet—is designed for medium-to-large labs where workflow, high-sample throughput, safety and high-quality image analysis is critical.
  • The Kodak Gel Logic 212 System can also be upgraded to the Kodak Gel Logic 1500 and 2200 Imaging Systems—advanced systems for imaging a wide array of samples including chemiluminescence, fluorescence, and chromogenic gels, blots, and plates.

All Kodak Gel Logic systems ship with Kodak Molecular Imaging Software to optimize performance and quantitative analysis capabilities.
