The Bio Image Advanced Quantifier (AQ) is a software system for analyzing scanned images of protein or DNA samples run in one-dimensional separations, including Northerns, Southerns and Westerns, RAPDs, STRs (micro satellites), Paternity and forensic analysis using RFLPs or STRs, Strain identification and comparison using RFLPs or STRs, and other genetic mapping applications using 1-D molecular techniques.

The software automatically locates lanes and bands. On command, it determines band size and quantity of sample present in comparison to standards or reference lanes.

The AQ software is available for PC. This software is ideal for clients who do not require compliance with 21CFR Part 11.

1-D Electrophoresis Analysis

Automatically detect lanes, find bands, including irregularly shaped bands, i.e., biphasic bands, “smiling bands,” or saturated bands that are substantially wider than the rest of the lane

Vary band detection sensitivity to optimize performance to gel characteristics

Quantifies bands by defining actual band boundaries based on inflection point analysis

Subtract local background

Side-by-side lane profile and band size/quantification comparisons

Quantify by whole band and densitometry methods

Specify methods of interpolation for standards from three methods: logarithmic, Linear, and Reciprocal

Display single lane density profiles or multiple overlay profiles

Analyze data with powerful data management and database capabilities. Create and search databases and compare band patterns across large populations

Compare fingerprints or band patterns within a single sample, or across thousands of samples

Build DNA, RNA, or protein-based taxonomy studies for many strains or organisms

Make genomic dentifications in agricultural, forensic, or paternity applications

Determine matches using Mw, interband spacing, or volume

Three methods for calculating band-sharing frequency

Build similarity dendograms using one of five clustering techniques

Lane labels to match just lanes of interest (e.g., just match Control lanes)

Show matching lanes from any image, for easy verification reporting

Powerful Reporting Capabilities

Customize reports and display them on screen, print, save as a file, or copy to spreadsheet programs

Choose from dozens of data items for the report header, lane headers, and individual bands

Show the size or concentration curves

Display band data including peak height, area and volume for the whole band, relative volume and Rf

Show side-by-side band comparisons, lane densitometry profiles,
3-D surface plots, and image histograms
