Odyssey® XF Imaging System – Get clearer answers with accurate, replicable Western blots and DNA gels.
See more with additional channels and clearer images
Image your near-infrared (NIR) and enhanced chemiluminescent (ECL) Western blots, detect multiple targets on the same blot with two channel multiplex fluorescence, and document DNA gels all on the same imager, without juggling multiple instruments.
See the full story in a single image
Increase the consistency and accuracy of your Western blot results by capturing a single image, without comparing multiple exposures or changing camera settings. The patented FieldBrite™ XT2 optics that power the Odyssey XF allow you to get the best image every time.

Detect your chemiluminescent or NIR Western blots and document DNA gels on the same imager without juggling multiple instruments. Document your agarose and PAGE gels stained with Ethidium Bromide, SYBR® Safe, SYBR Green I, and many other widely used DNA stains.
Do more with consistent, accurate digital imaging
Capture uniform, low-background images that are not subjected to image correction. Because post-capture image manipulation is not required, the Odyssey XF provides superior data reliability.
Get the highest quality images without artificial software enhancements
Other digital imagers have been known to modify images after capture to correct for non-uniform image brightness or to artificially improve the exposure. Other imagers manipulate images post-capture by:
- Binning: Some CCD imagers combine groups of pixels to improve signal-to-noise ratio, which reduces image resolution.
- Flat fielding: Other CCD imagers need to correct for non-uniform illumination caused by the lens, filter, or other optical components. These imagers alter image data through a software algorithm called “flat fielding” to compensate for non-uniformity.
- Image stacking: Some imagers acquire many images to get the nicest looking data. These imagers will select the best image from a “stack” of images.
The patented optics of the Odyssey XF deliver uniform, low background images every time with no post-capture image manipulation. With the Odyssey XF, you can be confident you have the most accurate, replicable data.
