Quick Overview

High performance dual-laser scanner system for microarray imaging and data analysis of DNA, protein, cell and tissue arrays.

LuxScan 10K-A microarray scanner


The CapitalBio LuxScan 10K-A confocal microarray scanner is a compact, high performance dual-laser scanner system for microarray imaging and data analysis of DNA, protein, cell and tissue arrays. It integrates advanced designs in optical, signal processing and motion control systems and has superior performance when compared with other competitive scanners on the market.

Two excitation lasers (532 nm and 635 nm) provide LuxScan 10K-A with high detection sensitivity, accuracy, dynamic range and linearity. With its optimized microarray signal acquisition and processing design it is an ideal tool for gene expression profiling of microarrays.

LuxScan 10K is for research use only.
