Fujifilm Life Science Launches Its Flagship, Multi-Purpose Imaging System for Proteomics Research

STAMFORD, CT | Posted on March 3rd, 2008

Fujifilm Life Science, the leading provider of scientific imaging systems, today introduced FLA-9000, the first modular image scanner capable of unparalleled proteomic applications in radioisotopic, fluorescent, chemiluminescent, and digitized imaging.

FLA-9000, also referred to as Starion, has been purposely designed to allow for customized upgradeability to suit researchers specific imaging needs. The FLA-9000 is ideal for fluorescence detection of 2D gels by SYPRO® Ruby stain and digitization of CBB-stained or silver-stained samples. A large scanning area of 40 x 46 cm extends the FLA-9000's imaging versatility.

The FLA-9000 can be configured in three different models to best accommodate researchers' needs:

1. IP Model - Ideal for storage phosphor imaging.

* Records image data in a log file format. This unique feature allows for greater linear accuracy when analyzing images containing the types of large dynamic range information sets that radioisotopes can generate.

2. RGB Model - Ideal for multi-spectral 2D gel imaging.

* Allows researchers to complete scans of samples labeled with Cy3 and Cy5 dyes in a single run.

3. IR+IP Model - Ideal for conducting near infrared and radioisotope imaging.

* Accommodates up to four lasers to scan imaging plates as well quantum dots (i.e. Qdot705 and Qdot800) and traditional fluorophors that emit in near infrared.

"The FLA-9000 sets a new precedent in the image scanner market," said Shanawaz Khan, general manager for Fujifilm Life Science, USA. "Researchers are no longer at the mercy of rigid platform configurations. FLA-9000's versatility complements researchers' specific area of study while expanding their imaging potential."

In addition to its three configurations, the FLA-9000 offers five different excitation wavelengths (473nm, 532nm, 635nm, 685nm, and 785nm) with a dynamic range up to five orders of magnitude. FLA-9000 software includes ImageReader, for image capture, MultiGauge, for image analysis and processing, and is compatible on both Macintosh® and Windows® operating systems.
