The Bio Image ACS-5000plus and ACS-6000 combine a versatile Microtek scanner with our industry proven Intelligent Quantifier®, Advanced Quantifier™, or Intelligent Quantifier-11™ software, to make a system which quickly and accurately analyzes your samples.
Accurate quantitation and analysis across a broad range of samples.
Every scan is automatically calibrated to an NIST certified step tablet. And you can include an image of the tablet with your sample, to insure compliant documentation for regulated applications. Both scanners operate across the entire visible spectrum (400-750 nm), so can be optimized for color stains like Coomassie Blue or silver stain, and their 4.0 Dmax dynamic range means accurate quantitation even in dark areas.
With both transmissive and reflective modes, whether you have wet or dried gels, autoradiograms or films, membranes, or dot/slot blots, Bio Image scanners are ready for your samples.
Easy-to-use, yet powerful, software.
Bio Image Intelligent Quantifier® software is used by thousands of researchers across the world every day to provide accurate quantitation and analysis. The software is intuitive and easy to use, with built-in automation and workflow tools so you can quickly define protocols and run them easily and repetitively.

There’s another auto-calibrating scanner out there. You probably know that. After all, their name starts with "Bio", too. Here’s a little comparison:
|Bio||"The Other Bio"|
|Bit Depth||True 16||12|
|Max Dynamic Range||3.77||3.0|
|Replace Calibration Strip?||User||Service Engineer|
|Model - A4||Bio-5000||none|
|Model - A3||Bio-6000T||21000 XL|
Their calibration strip is affixed to the underside of the platen. At first, this is great - it certainly is protected from wet gels or spills. But NIST states: "The optical densities of these step tablets may change over time." [NIST Report of Calibration 38120C Diffuse Transmittance]. What do you do then?
Bio Image calibration strips are both sealed to keep them free of any contamination, and behind a liquid-tight dam which surrounds the sample. So with our scanners, you simply order a new strip, and start using it.
