- 2D gels on the scanner surface, ready to be scanned
GE Healthcare Typhoon 9400 scanner
This is the GE Healthcare “Typhoon 9400″ scanner used to scan fluorescent gels. It’s a huge beast but it doesn’t make a lot of noise (well, I don’t want to stay the whole day next to it!). And this unit only has the red and green scanners inside. There is a second (smaller) unit below with only a blue laser source in it! You can see two gels ready to be scanned (the upper door has to be closed before!).
