Broad guideline to choose "The electrophoresis and densitometer system"
Helena offer the most elaborate range of different power supplies and chambers with varying levels of convenience and automation, and densitometers based on image scanning, visible transmittance and fluorescence, and the combination system with the highest level of automation. Choose the most appropriate configuration of electrophoresis and/or densitometer systems, based on your workload and level of automation preferred. |
(a) Basic Titan plus power supply and titan gel chamber, for the most economical, value for money configuration, |
to carry out most of your clinical electrophoresis work at low investment.
Add the QS 2000 Platinum Scanner if you prefer the automated densitometer.
Configuration 1: Titan Plus power supply + Titan gel chamber + QS 2000 platinum densitometer
(b) EPS 600 power supply and chamber with heat shield and IEF chamber, to handle horizontal and vertical |
electrophoresis, and blotting applications for routine and research applications.
QS 2000 Platinum is the densitometer of choice, if a scanner is to go with the above system.
Configuration 2: EPS 600 + Chamber with heat shield + QS 2000 densitometer.
(c) Modular automation with SAS 1 Plus for automated sample application, programmable electrophoresis, |
steps, and SAS 2 for automation of gel processing from staining, destaining to drying steps, under programmes
and for running small gels (12 / 24 samples).
Add the QS 2000 Platinum densitometer to the above, to get modular automation of entire process of
sample application to electrophoresis to staining, destaining and drying to scanning of the gels.
Configuration 3: SAS 1 Plus + SAS 2 + QS 2000 Platinum.
The ideal configuration for automation of all critical steps, and scanning, providing
"automation at an affordable cost."
(d) Modular automation with SAS 3 for automated sample application, programmable electrophoresis with bar code
identification of samples and SAS 4 automated gel processing system that has possibility to handle multiple stains, on line and for larger gels.
QS 2000 Platinum Scanner with the above configuration completes the picture, to handle medium work loads.
Configuration 4: SAS 3 + SAS 4 + QS 2000 is the choice.
If the mid level sample load is to be handled with sample bar coding, with convenience of no change of stains
during the gel processing, this is the most appropriate configuration.
(e) SPIFE 3000, if heavier workloads are to be handled with higher throughput, with a small foot-print, to handle |
automated sample separation, staining with integrated sample applicator, bar code reader and multiple stains
with ability to handle multiple assays on gel sizes to adopt to varying work loads or different analytes.
Add the QS 2000 Platinum to complete the high speed scanning
Configuration 5: SPIFE 3000 + QS 2000 Platinum scanner.
The work horse configuration for high-volume users.
(f) If totally integrated automation to handle very heavy work loads, with high throughput is preferred, with ability
to scan in visible and insitu fluorescence modes, then REP 3 is THE MODEL.
Configuration 6: REP 3 + REP Gel processor.
Note: Add ESH electrophoresis sample handler for further automation in sample processing.
(g) If the system based on economic basic power supply and chamber configuration, but with ability to handle any
media of upto 20x20cm and ability to scan TLC plates is preferred, EDC is an ideal system.
Configuration 7: Titan plus power supply + Titan gel chamber + EDC.
