CLIQS 1D PRO – Technical Specification
CLIQS 1D PRO
CLIQS 1D Pro allows you to perform large dataset investigations in a fast and easy to use interface. The software you install combines analysis of 1D gel images with a database of results for band pattern matching. CLIQS 1D Pro is straight forward and offers you the best for value gel fingerprinting software.
How CLIQS 1D PRO software works
Why CLIQS 1D PRO?
Easy to use
Our tools are designed with you in mind. Each program mode clearly shows all the options available and editing is straight forward.
Fast, automated analysis
Automated analysis for detecting lanes, bands and band matching speed up your work and make your results less subjective. Automatic background subtraction options account for image noise.
Data Export and Reports
The latest Clip Gallery tool provides a simple way to capture publication quality images (300 dpi) as you move through the software. All tables, images, results are exportable in a variety of formats.
World Class Support
All products come with a year’s free support. We aim to reply to any support queries you have within 24hrs and provide a fast turnaround of updates and fixes.
The products are developed on a regular basis to cover operating system changes, new features for new techniques and improving your experience with the products.
