CapitalBio® Microarray Scanner LuxScan™10K

The CapitalBio LuxScan™ 10K microarray gene array scanner is a compact high performance system for microarray imaging and the analysis of DNA, protein, and cell arrays. Its advanced systems for optics, signal processing, and motion control provide superior scan accuracy and high detection sensitivity over a wide linear dynamic range. With the optimized signal acquisition and processing elements, this microarray instrument is ideal for profiling high-density spotted microarrays.

LuxScan™ 10K-A has two excitation lasers (532nm and 635nm) and scans sequentially, avoiding potential signal crosstalk for dual labeled arrays.

LuxScan™ 10K-B comes with either a 532nm or 635nm excitation laser. The microarray platform has a National Registration Certificate for Medical Devices and is suitable for diagnostic uses.

Microarray Scanner Uses
Microarray Scanner Uses

The gene array scanner scans the gene chip processed by the chemical color development method into an image. The life sciences instruments use special software to identify and analyze it, which should be in conjunction with the gene chip.
