Pharos FX Gel Scanner


The Pharos FX system is a robust yet simple system for visualizing and quantifying a wide array of gels, blots, and screens.  This Pharos FX is capable of visualizing samples by fluorescence, visible light/colorimetric, and phosphorescence (radiography screens).  It is also capable of multiplexed reading, expanding the complexity of available experiments.  In addition to the standard internal 532nm laser, our system incorporates external lasers at 488nm and 635nm, further increasing applicability of this work-horse system to the full range of fluorescent and colorimetric dye sets.

Users interested in doing K-screens and other forms of radiography should use the FX Pro Plus Scanner – housed within a radiation approved room.
