Still used in a limited number of laboratories, the FMBIO® platform provided an easy to use detection system for analysis of amplified product from multiplexed reactions.

The FMBIO® II, III, and III Plus systems are versatile flatbed scanners capable of capturing data from a range of applications. They are used after product separation on PAGs, and depend on post-electrophoretic detection methods. The FMBIO® systems are laser-based imaging systems with up to eight-color fluorescence detection and provide superior sensitivity to a slab gel with products visualized by silver staining.
