The University awarded a contract for Odyssey Infrared Imaging System to LI-COR, Inc., Lincoln, NE, for $62,238.
Odyssey Infrared Imaging System is an advanced device available currently for western blot analysis. Compared to the chemiluminescence and fluorescence detection methods most commonly used in Western blot analysis, the Near-infrared (NIR) fluorescence detection that the Odydssey Infrared Imaging System uses, allows you to quantitate proteins over a much wider linear dynamic range than chemiluminescence can. It also has other wide range of applications such as ELISA, EMSA, RNAi screening, and small animal imaging etc. This equipment will improve research capability of the investigators in the College of Pharmacy, and also will be available to other investigators within the University community. The availability of this equipment will allow us to jump-start our research endeavor as soon as the proposed laboratory in Douglas Hall is ready.
This purchase is only economically available from a single source because the
compatibility of equipment, accessories, replacement parts, or service is a paramount consideration.
