The Innoscan 710-IR is capable of reading signals in the near-Infrared spectrum. This allows for a considerable reduction in the background noise caused by supports normally used in protein microarrays such as nitrocellulose or PVDF.
The Innoscan 710-IR is ideal for reading slides on a nitrocellulose or PVDF support, or any slide dyed with fluorophores excited at near infrared wavelengths (670nm, 785nm):
Application Fields :
The Innoscan 710-IR is a confocal fluorescence scanner equipped with two excitation lasers (670nm and 785nm) and two photomultiplier tubes (PMT) as a detection system. The PMT detection system is extremely sensitive and perfectly linear across the entire function range (0 to 100%) thus allowing users to adjust the PMT gain of each wavelength independent of the other.
As the Innoscan 710-IR contains a real-time autofocus system, users have the advantage of eliminating the effect of substrate deformation, thus allowing a perfect homogeneity across the entire reading surface. Innopsys’ InnoScan scanners are known for their excellent photometric properties, notably in terms ofsensitivity and signal to noise ratio (SNR).
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
