Image Processors, Gel Quantifying
Definition : Image processors designed to quantitate and store images from laboratory gel substrates. These devices typically consist of a portable unit with a CCD (charge-coupled device) camera, filters, controls, image storage devices, display, and appropriate software; they are used mainly to take images from visible or ultraviolet transilluminators. Gel image processors are intended for temporary storage of images and/or transmission of information to digital computerized systems for storage or processing and/or to computer system peripherals (e.g., printers). Dedicated gel quantifying processors are available to quantitate several types of gel substrate images, such as fluorescent labels, bromide-stained agarose gels, and chemiluminescent and electrophoresis gels. Some processors are also capable of imaging chemiluminescent signals from nylon/nitrocellulose filters as well as gel-based images.
