Cell Biosciences, Inc., a provider of innovative protein analysis tools to life science researchers, announced the launch of the latest addition to their premier line of next-generation imaging products, the FluorChem® M MultiFluor system. This new platform combines highly-sensitive quantitative detection of multicolor fluorescent Western blots with key ease-of-use features aimed at simplifying the laboratory imaging process. MultiFluor Western Blotting kits, a new line of reagents optimized for the FluorChem M, are launching jointly — creating a combined offering that provides a complete solution for multicolor fluorescent imaging.

Tim Harkness, President and Chief Executive Officer of Cell Biosciences said, The new FluorChem platforms integrate high-performance imaging with true ease of operation, facilitating the transition from darkroom film imaging to bench-top imager. Customer response to FluorChem E, our initial market entry in this product line, has been tremendously positive. We sold over 100 FluorChem E units in the first six months, and we believe that FluorChem M will be a key driver for the continued growth of our imaging line.

FluorChem M features intuitive software, touchscreen operation and pre-optimized protocols that let researchers start imaging right out of the box — no training required. Using a unique browser-based interface, scientists can control and monitor image acquisition and access data remotely from any networked computer or mobile WiFi device. Chemiluminescent, colorimetric and UV-excited gels and blots can also be imaged on the system.
