Overview:

In this webinar, Alexis introduced the Fusion fluorescence and chemiluminescence systems manufactured by Vilber.  The Fusion systems are the ideal multimodal imaging platform designed for molecular biology laboratories. They cover the spectrum of chemiluminescence, multiplexing fluorescence and chemifluorescence applications. The system offers the ultimate speed and sensitivity across all DNA, RNA and protein-based applications. The Fusion is advanced in the technology it uses to take images and the ease at which users can process and analyze them. The Fusion system is ideal for publication, quantification, and documentation grade imaging.

The Fusion systems are ideal for quantification grade imaging. Chemiluminescent Western blot data poses distinct challenges in producing quantifiable and reproducible data. Most of these issues are a result of low-dynamic range of detection and difficulty in accurately determining the limit of detection. Fusion systems eliminate all these issues thanks to a High Sensitivity Reading (HSR) camera technology that delivers reliable dynamic range, linearity, and unsurpassed sensitivity for the lowest limit of detection. The advanced camera technology reduces noise allowing faint signals to stand out from the surrounding background.

Further the Fusion systems can deliver consistent and reproducible data, independently of a chemiluminescence time course. The chemiluminescence intensity/time profile consists of an initial rise period up to a prolonged emission at a pseudo-plateau level and a decline. VILBER Fusions Automatic imaging mode compensates the time course of the chemiluminescence reaction by adjusting the exposure time while maintaining the larger possible image dynamic.

VILBER is a leading life science company developing and manufacturing fluorescence and chemiluminescence imaging systems for applications ranging from small animal to cell biology research. Founded in 1954, Vilber is a leader in the molecular imaging sector, equipping more than 20,000 laboratories worldwide. An estimated 60,000 researchers use their products every day in over 100 countries.
