I want to follow Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) in my work. How can I use my system to help me do this?2018-02-09T16:42:36+00:00

GLP is achieved by adhering to strict protocols or procedures. Using any Syngene system these procedures can be followed absolutely. The image captured can be saved in a private .SGD file format. This file cannot be changed or modified. The software records all system parameters from the moment of capture.

When capturing images for chemiluminescence what difference does the signal to noise ratio make?2018-02-09T16:42:47+00:00

The longer the exposure time used to capture an image, the more background noise builds up in the system. This noise will often be visible on the captured image. Cameras used for chemiluminescence applications should be electronically or Peltier cooled. Cooling drastically reduces inherent background noise. The best results are therefore obtained by having the lowest signal to noise ratio possible.
