Bio-5000 Plus
Microtek’s Bio-5000 Plus is a two-platform scanner specifically designed for the professionals who focus on scanning and studying of biological electrophoresis gels. It is equipped with an optical CCD whose resolution is up to 4800 dpi and the range, between 0.05 and 3.77D, of the optical density provides you a smarter way to capture differences among each layer of scanned electrophoresis gels. With a built-in Auto-Focus function, Bio-5000 Plus is capable of shifting the focal length to the best position automatically; thus you can get images with top quality. By the design of twin scan-bed, it is quite convenient to put your Bio-5000 Plus in operation and lowers the risks of mutual infection in experimentation. Therefore, Bio-5000 Plus is the best choice of scanning electrophoresis gels.


 Dual-scan beds:8"x10" / Gel & Transparent, 8.5"x14" / Reflective 
 Auto-Focus Ensures the Best Scanning Quality
 The Design of Leak-Free Holders for Electrophoresis Gels
 Adopting Energy-Saving LEDs as the Light Source
 Convenient MiBio Software for Handling Images of Scanned Electrophoresis Gels

6 seconds per gel scanning (10x10cm)
6 sec. / 10x10cm ; 15 sec. / 8”x10” ( 300 dpi for Gel Scanning )

Designed removable watertight glass holder
Bio-5000 is equipped with a removable and watertight glass holder that can be easily pulled out and washed
and cleaned. Images of wet/dry gel samples are captured with the mechanism design of Microtek Emulsion Direct Imaging
Technology (E.D.I.T.). Users can capture images directly from gel surfaces even if the samples are wet or dry.

Deliver accurate images even if the scanned target is 
uneven or is a crease reflective film.

Microtek Bio-5000 technology solves the limit of the short DOF (depth of field) with high resolution. It also allows users to
shift the focusing point on scanned targets; therefore, users can correct deficiencies on scanned targets easily and quickly.

Microtek patented E.D.I.T.

Microtek's patented E.D.I.T. (Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology) allows you to capture images directly from the emulsion
surface of the originals without an interfering pane of glass. This results in distortion-free images, diminished light refraction,
and the elimination of "Newton Rings" — those annoying and extremely hard-toremove concentric circles that result from
scanning a transparency through a glass plate.


Dual-scan beds:

8"x10" / Gel & Transparent, 
8.5"x14" / Reflective

0.05D ~ 3.70D, 4.2Dmax

The Bio-5000 delivers impressive image quality, versatility and productivity features with its
4800 x 9600 dpi optical resolution, 48-bit color depth, and 0.05D ~ 3.70D, 4.2Dmax

Make batch scanning easily

 The Bio-5000 accommodates specially designed film holders. The film holders lock into place,
assuring perfect alignment and precise scans, as well as offering convenient batch scanning.

Powerful software features

MiBio implements many biological image analysis features with a user friendly surface (Windows only). The utility provides an added valuable turnkey solution. Microtek’s Bio-5000 is also compatible with all advanced image analysis software packages for 1D and 2D gel electrophoresis.

Fields of application and application examples

Electrophoresis gels stained with Coomassie blue stain or autoradiography. i.e. silver-stained SDS PAGE, etc.
