•  2400 dpi resolution for fine microbial images

•  Easy to customize as analytical instruments



Dual-scan beds:

8″x10″ / Gel & Transparent,

8.5″x14″ / Reflective

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.

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 Bioimager professional Bio-5000 scanner and the ScanWizard Bio software, users can easily capture and preserve images of these important researches. The Bio-5050 is equipped with Bioimager’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.

Designed Leak-Free Removable Glass Holder

Bio-6000T is equipped with a specially designed leak-free glass holder that can be easily removed out for cleaning and washing under water tap. The available holders are sizes of 110 x 110 mm, 240 x 240 mm, and 12″ x 16″.
