There is no booking system for the Typhoon.

The Typhoon Trio+ can be used for storage phosphor autoradiography and fluorescent labeling techniques, including chemiluminescence. Typically, storage phosphor screen exposure takes 10% of the time for an equivalent exposure to conventional film. For fluorescence the concentration measurable is claimed to be in the 0.2 fmol range.

The system is equipped with 3 lasers:

  • . 488 nm blue laser (This laser is down at the moment)
  • . 532 nm green laser
  • . 633 nm red laser

And 6 different emmision filters (+examples of fluorochromes):

  • . 520BP40 (FITC, Cy2, SYBR Green, Alexa488, ECL Plus)
  • . 555BP20 (R6G, HEX, Alexa532)
  • . 580BP30 (Cy3, TAMRA, Alexa546)
  • . 610BP30(ethidium bromide, SYPRO Ruby, Deep Purple)
  • . 670BP30 (Cy5, Alexa633)
  • . 526SP
