Introduction

Bio-5000 Plus

Bio-5000 Plus is a two-platform scanner specifically designed for the professionals who focus on scanning and studying of biological electrophoresis gels. It is equipped with an optical CCD whose resolution is up to 4800 dpi and the range, between 0.05 and 3.77D, of the optical density provides you a smarter way to capture differences among each layer of scanned electrophoresis gels. With a built-in Auto-Focus function, Bio-5000 Plus is capable of shifting the focal length to the best position automatically; thus you can get images with top quality. By the design of twin scan-bed, it is quite convenient to put your Bio-5000 Plus in operation and lowers the risks of mutual infection in experimentation. Therefore, Bio-5000 Plus is the best choice of scanning electrophoresis gels.

Auto-Focus Ensures the Best Scanning Quality


Auto Focus is able to change relative distances between the scanned gels and the CCD through the adjustment of the CCD, resulting in better and clearer image quality for a chosen area of the scan automatically.

The Design of Leak-Free Holders for Electrophoresis Gels


With the design of two platforms and leak-free holders, it is not only convenient to scan electrophoresis gels but also lowers the possibility of the happenings for mutual infection in labs.

Adopting Energy-Saving LEDs as the Light Source


Adopting energy-Saving LEDs as its light source, Bio-5000 Plus not only meets the trend of energy-saving in the world but also shortens the waiting time for the warm-up of the machine.

Convenient MiBio Software for Handling Images of Scanned Electrophoresis Gels


Bundled with convenient and easy-to-use software, you can scan, emphasize and table important information for your scanned electrophoresis gels quickly. Thus, you can proceed further analysis and handling for images of scanned electrophoresis gels.

Configuration

Applications

When processing biology or medical researches, it is usually necessary to preserve the after-studied images. When capturing images, the most troublesome task is that the images to be preserved may not be dry during taking. The ongoing samples may come with biological mucus or tissue fluid. It then becomes critical about how to capture images of these wet samples fast and preserve them for the use later. 

By the help of Microtek's professional Bio-5000 scanner and the ScanWizard Bio software, users can easily capture and preserve images of these important researches. The Bio-5000 is equipped with Microtek's patented Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.) for delivering conveniences on cleaning and use. Also, the come-with Auto Focus function allows the scanner to capture the details in images exquisitely and then to generate distortion-free and clear results.
