Edinburgh Facility Enhances Quantitative Whole-Body Autoradiography Capabilities
July 28, 2010 - Charles River Preclinical Services (PCS) Edinburgh has acquired new equipment to enhance its Quantitative Whole-Body Autoradiography (QWBA) program. The facility has obtained a Typhoon™ FLA 7000 scanner (GE Healthcare) and the CryoJane® Tape-Transfer System (Leica). These new additions will increase our capacity and capabilities for investigating tissue distribution and histology.
The Typhoon™ FLA 7000 scanner is a fast laser scanner optimized for quantitative phosphor imaging, ECL Plus Westerns, visible single fluorescence and gel documentation. It offers high speed (20 x 40 cm gel in 2.5 minutes) with high sensitivity (up to 25 μm resolution) for accurate quantification of closely spaced targets and full visible fluorescence with 473/532/635/650 nm excitation and up to 25 µm resolution for gel and blot imaging.
The CryoJane® Tape-Transfer System is an add-on for existing cryotomes and eliminates the problems normally encountered during cutting and staining frozen tissue sections by utilizing cold adhesive tapes and slides. This process produces a frozen section with minimal ice crystal artifact and the cellular structures preserved.
