“ Ease of use, speed and image quality ”
Characterised by its ease-of-use, speed and image quality, InnoScan 710 is the ideal tool for routine microarray reading.
InnoScan 710 is ideal for reading low or medium density microarrays, both commercial or home made:
In the following application fields:
InnoScan 710 is a confocal scanner equipped with 2 extremely sensitive photomultipliers (PMT), linear over the entire operating range (from 0 to 100%). This makes it easy for the user to set PMT gains to adjust the fluorescence signal levels for the 2 colors (particularly the saturation level and equilibration of the 2 channels).
InnoScan 710 has a special feature of using a real-time autofocus system that offers the advantage of making it adaptible to substrate distortion, thus making the entire reading area completely uniform. InnoScan scanners are well known for their excellent photometric properties, particularly in terms of sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio.
Thanks to XDR mode (Extended Dynamic Range), InnoScan scanners have a dynamic range over 106 and then are capable to detect the smallest spots avoiding saturated spots.
