Studying Diabetes at UC Davis with the ChemiDoc™ MP Imaging System



February 24, 2017

"For more info, visit Learn how researchers in the Muscle Physiology and Proteomics Laboratory at the University of California, Davis use Bio-Rad's ChemiDoc MP imaging system to study the role of protein degradation pathways in diabetic heart disease. The ChemiDoc MP system enables stain-free imaging with superior sensitivity, exceptional image quality, and outstanding versatility. Graduate student Shannamar Dewey describes the importance of accurate imaging in multiple steps of her work determining changes in protein degradation in a mouse model of cardiomyopathy: normalization and quantitation of protein levels, immunoassays, and protease activity assays. The speed and convenience of stain-free imaging after a 2.5-min activation allow Dewey to quickly check a protein gel to confirm the quality of the protein separation before proceeding to the transfer step. The ChemiDoc MP system saves time and steps in the lab, increases productivity, and helps students graduate in less time!
