Gel/Blot scanners - Pharos FX Plus & ChemiDoc MP
Analytical Ultracentrifuge - Beckman XL-I
The Beckman XL-I is a dual detection analytical ultracentrifuge. The monochrometer can measure at wavelengths of 190 - 800 nm and scan with a 0.001 cm resolution.
The interference detection system allows measurement of nonadsorbing species like typical polymers as well as protein and DNA systems at concentrations higher than those accessible by off-peak spectroscopy.
As an average of several fringe positions, the interferrometer gives a strong signal with a very low noise. The camera based detection system allows for ultrafast scans (< 1sec).
