Gel imaging systems, also known as gel documentation systems is a revolutionized medical equipment which performs the function of imaging, documentation or recording of stained DNA and proteinon a high tech digital platform. Gel imaging systems is a combination of different component such as an imaging system, a computer, a light source, analysis software and a printer. For instance, G:BOX F3 is an entry level gel documentation system manufactured by Syngene fluorescence and visible applications. The systems works with GeneSys software which handles hundreds of application protocol and functional control. The product even have high resolution camera coupled with motor driven zoom lens, which is capable of giving high quality gel images along with the spatial resolution. Many other companies are engaged in manufacturing of gel imaging systems such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, BIOTEC-FISCHER, UVP LLC, Cleaver Scientific Ltd., and Bio-Rad Laboratories, Inc. Gel imaging technology has come a long way since its inception, where the technicians used to prefer instant cameras. It has replaced the traditional approach of gel analysis and documentation owing to its better dynamic range, faster exposure and higher efficiency. Moreover, other tools such as signal saturation and automated features offers user friendly experience of gel documentation to new technicians. In terms of reliability, functionality, and affordability, these devices has improved enormously and today’s gel imaging equipment’s illustrate this development. Growing clinical research industry and increasing use of molecular biology techniques into pathology laboratory practices are expected to drive the growth of gel documentation systems market. Currently, the use of advance techniques such as Western blot technique, and DNA diagnostics has increased tremendously, which in return generates need for automated and advance gel documentation systems. Additionally, companies are also focusing on the approval and product launch of gel documentation systems owing to substantial growth in clinical research and drug development industry. Recently, Viewpoint Laboratories, LLC, has launched a new gel documentation system i.e. ZIG-gel Classic, which provides imaging power of an 18 MP, 10x optical zoom camera. This product is expected to fulfill the need of consumer looking for the high image resolution along with the conventional form factor particularly for research labs and life science educator labs. Such ongoing product development and launch by the leading companies are expected to drive the growth of gel documentation systems market. The global market for gel documentation is segmented on the basis of product type, component, application and geography. Based on application, the global gel documentation systems market is divided into following: On the basis of component, the global gel documentation system market is segmented as, Based on application, the global gel documentation systems market is divided into following: Development of advanced but low cost gel documentation systems will pave the road for new entrants. The upcoming research and drug development activities will open a new avenue and extraordinary opportunities for gel documentation systems manufacturing companies. The cost of gel documentation systems is currently high owing to incorporation of advanced technologies and complex consumer’s requirements. However, many Chinese manufacturers are now coming up with the low cost and low resolution gel imaging devices. Thus, the price of these devices is expected to decrease as compared to the branded products in coming years. Geographically, the global gel documentation system market is segmented into regions namely, North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia-Pacific Excluding Japan, Japan, Middle East and Africa. Among all the regions, North America will continue to lead the global market for gel documentations systems market due to high demand for research and development activities. Europe market is expected to account for second largest share in global market primarily due to high adoption of gel documentation systems which is expected to fuel the market growth. Asian companies are competing on the basis of price and research activities. Hence, the Asia Pacific gel documentation systems market is expected to witness fastest growth in overall market over the forecast period. Key players operating in the global gel documentation systems market are Syngene, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Inc., UVP LLC, eikonix Ltd, Viewpoint Laboratories, TBG Biotechnology Corp  and others

One-dimensional gel electrophoresis of proteins provides information about the molecular size, amount, and purity of a protein sample. Separated proteins can be recovered from polyacrylamide gels for subsequent characterization by a variety of secondary techniques, such as mass spectrometry to determine post-translational modifications and the amino acid sequence. In addition, one-dimensional electrophoresis is the standard first step in immunoblotting and immunodetection. Protein separations in vertical slab gels are performed in a variety of formats. Most recently, small format minigels are typical due to their ease of use, low relative cost, and ready commercial availability. Larger gels provide more separation area and thus better resolution for complex samples and continue to be in use for specialized analysis. © 2012 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

ImageJ is a freely available, cross-platform (e.g., Windows, Mac, Linux) image processing and analysis program developed by the NIH. In addition to being readily available for no cost, ImageJ is supported by a wide range of constantly evolving user-created functionalities to address a remarkable range of applications, complementing commercial software that typically comes with imaging instruments such as digital gel-imaging systems or microscopy workstations. New processing/analysis macros and plug-ins are routinely added to the support site, and are frequently validated via refereed publications. With the continued improvements and growth of fluorescence-based applications, ImageJ continues to be a mainstay in the laboratory. ImageJ has extensive support materials available online, its base code is regularly updated, and a survey of Medline references indicates that it is one of the most widely used image-analysis packages available today. © 2014 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Immunoblotting (also referred to as western blotting) uses antibodies to probe for a specific protein in a sample bound to a membrane. Typically, a protein sample is first size separated via electrophoresis (e.g., SDS PAGE). However, antibodies used for specific protein detection are restricted by the polyacrylamide gel and, to make the separated proteins accessible, the proteins need to be moved out of the gel and bound to a rectangular sheet of PVDF or nitrocellulose membrane. Specialized blotting equipment electrophoretically transfers the negatively charged proteins from the gel onto the membrane. The nitrocellulose or PVDF membrane binds the proteins as they move out of the gel, producing an exact replica, on the membrane surface, of the original protein gel separation. The membrane is then blocked to prevent any nonspecific protein binding and visualized by specific antibodies to detect the presence or absence of a particular protein. Applications of immunoblotting are many, and include antibody characterization, diagnostics, gene expression, and post-translational modification analysis. © 2010 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.

Quantitation of nucleic acids is a fundamental tool in molecular biology that requires accuracy, reliability, and the use of increasingly smaller sample volumes. This unit describes the traditional absorbance measurement at 260 nm and three more sensitive fluorescence techniques employing Hoechst 33258, ethidium bromide, and PicoGreen. The range of the assays covers 25 pg/ml to 50 μg/ml. Absorbance at 260 nm has an effective range from 1 to 50 μg/ml; Hoechst 33258 from 0.01 to 15 μg/ml; ethidium bromide from 0.1 to 10 μg/ml; and PicoGreen from 25 to 1000 pg/ml. © 2011 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
