How to Improve Productivity for Imaging Workflows on a Limited Budget 

Being strategic in imager selection and upgrades enables labs to do more with less

 Biomolecular imagers are used in many lab workflows, each with unique requirements. To meet the range of needs for applications like nucleic acid quantification, Western blots, Southern blots, Northern blots, various other assays, and histology, imagers come with a seemingly endless array of models and features. Figuring out how to optimize workflows with the right imager for your lab can save considerable time, effort, and money, but can be a daunting task.

What are the minimum requirements for your lab? Will an imager meet your future needs as they evolve? Is there a strategic upgrade that would allow you consolidate multiple workflows, removing the need for multiple imagers? The best option for your lab meets current and projected requirements for sensitivity and resolution, data security and compliance, processing efficiency, and versatility without overshooting. This resource guide provides an overview of technology, features, and common applications to help you navigate the options and determine the right fit for your applications and workflows.
