Quantitative and qualitative software for analysis of protein, DNA and RNA

Benefits of image quantitation for your research

If your research is focussed on understanding biological systems and applying that knowledge, you benefit from using a core set of techniques, common to thousands of labs. These techniques include 1D gel electrophoresis, arrays, 96 or 384-well plate reactions and colony counting. Digitisation and analysis of the images produced by these various techniques offers you many advantages, including:

  • Simplify visualisation of complex, multidimensional data
  • Increase the information content of each sample collected
  • Easy analysis with greater accuracy and precision
  • A record of results for publishing and comparing to other data
  • Flexibility to apply the best analysis workflow for your sample profile

I was sceptical about using TotalLab having only ever used a competitor’s product but I had no reason to doubt the capabilities of the software program. It is extremely easy and straightforward to use allowing quick and reliable image analysis. In addition the TotalLab support is outstanding Eimear Downey
