Your benefits

The QUANTUM CX5 offers an optimized, fully automized complete package based on the specially developed and sensitive 'scientific grade' 16-bit USB3 camera with 5.0 megapixel native sensor resolution. Excellent imaging properties guarantee best performance for nucleic acid and protein samples. The images generated allow for multiple analyses due to their high depth of data. As well, they can very easily be printed out in a nice way for the laboratory book.


The image quality is significantly improved by configuration with Super-Bright illumination and filter technology, especially for DNA and RNA gels. Optional UV epi illumination sources (254 nm, 365 nm) allow for TLC or GFP images, for instance. The compact darkroom with integrated filter wheel is completely made of metal. For comfortable work, the integrated UV transilluminator is completely extendable.

The BioVision image acquisition software is easy and intuitive to use.


The 'Image Master' assistant is also included as are the modules for molecular weight analysis, quantification and R(f) analyses and for colony counting. A comprehensive range of tools e.g. for image editing,  labeling, cropping, orientation, display are also part of the package.  The universal data format ensures the lossless data-exchange  to other presentation or analysis software.
