Microtek Bio-6000

Microtek’s Bio-6000, performing advanced application in biological laboratory, is perfectly designed for large image capture of dry or wet sample of electrophoresis gel, SDS-PAGE, western blotting, etc. It provides energy-saving LED light source without any warm-up time before carrying out the scan, which boots your productivity and reduces energy costs amazingly.

Bio-6000 provides high image quality with the technical characteristics: 3200-dpi optical resolution, 48-bit color & 0.05D ~ 3.77D, which delivers astonishing, sharpness, detailed, and near-original images. Not only with high image quality but also with large size scanning area. With the large leak-free scan bed, the Bio-6000 is the best choice to digitize big size gel images and offer a total solution including powerful software features for biological professionals and researchers.

Furthermore, the designed leak-free scan bed and shield prevent the machine from liquid penetration. Scientists can capture images directly from gel surface handily no matter the samples are dry or wet. It saves a lot of time, 1-2 days at least, to continue the lab projects without waiting sample dry.
