Midascan™ and Midascan-IR™ dual-channel scanner
Midascan™ and midascan-IR™ dual-channel scanner Products for imaging tissues, cells, and microarrays
MidaScan-IR™ is a dual channel (700 nm and 800 nm) near-infrared (NIR) confocal microscope scanner for imaging tissues, cells, and microarrays on standard glass or plasmonic slides.
- Provides NIR (700-800 nm) imaging and detection system with unprecedented high signal-to-background ratio (~ 4.5 logs)
MidaScan™ is a confocal imager for Cy3 and Cy5 channels in the visible spectrum.
MidaScan-IR™ combined with MidaScan™ provides high performance, large area confocal imaging in the 570 nm (Cy3), 670 nm (Cy5), 700 nm, and 800 nm fluorescence emission channels.
Combined with pGOLD™ slides, the platform affords 5-100 fold enhancement in signal/noise in the 500-900 nm range compared to conventional glass based slides.
Key benefits of the OptiMidas™ Microarray Scanner Platform include:
- Excellent detection sensitivity for cytokines, cell/tissue imaging, antibodies and antigens, protein microarray assays, and DNA/RNA
- Custom Assay development for high-sensitivity assays
- Requires ultra-low sample volume (<5 ul)
- Suitable for different sample matrices (whole blood, serum, and saliva)
- Reverse-phase protein assays
- Test up to 14 samples on one slide, 10-20 biomarkers per sample simultaneously
- Broad dynamic range (6 logs or larger)
