Features of CapitalBio® Microarray Scanner LuxScan™10K/D

  • The first microfluidic in situ fluorescence scanner for detecting amplified nucleic acids

  • Two fluorescence detection channels can be monitored independently due to sequential scanning, and the laser intensity and PMT can be fine-tuned in real-time.

  • LuxScan10K/D has a much larger numerical aperture of 0.76 than the industry standard of 0.68. The amount of microarray scanner light that can be collected is directly related to the lens's numerical aperture.

How Does A CapitalBio® DNA Microarray Scanner LuxScan™10K/D Work?

The CapitalBio® LuxScan™10K microarray scanner utilizes a sophisticated technology called the laser confocal principle. This principle allows the scanner to achieve exceptional sensitivity in detecting fluorescence signals, making it a powerful tool for various microarray experiments.

  • Laser Illumination: A laser beam with a specific wavelength illuminates the microarray surface. This laser light excites the fluorescent molecules (fluorophores) that are attached to the target DNA or RNA samples bound to the microarray spots.

  • Confocal Scanning: The LuxScan™10K employs a confocal scanning system. This system focuses the laser beam onto a very small spot on the microarray. By precisely controlling the laser beam's focus point as it scans across the entire microarray surface, the scanner minimizes background noise and enhances the detection sensitivity of the fluorescent signals.

  • Fluorescence Detection: As the laser excites the fluorophores, they emit light at a longer wavelength (fluorescence). The LuxScan™10K utilizes high-sensitivity detectors to capture this emitted fluorescent light.

  • Signal Processing and Analysis: The captured fluorescence signals are then processed and analyzed by the scanner's software. The software measures the intensity of the fluorescence from each spot on the microarray, allowing researchers to quantify the amount of bound target molecules.
