There is a true phosphorimager (because it also images phosphorus) from
Bio Rad, which detects chemiluminescence with dedicated screens.
However, Boehringer has just started marketing a lumiimager, based on a
CCD camera principle (not scanning as both Molecular
Dynamics and BioRad machines are) and an F/0.9 lens, which takes a
picture of a luminescent object like a regular stationery camera. In contrast,
MD imagers are based on direct chemifluorescence scanning principle,
which requres conversion of chemiluminescence protocols into
I hope this helps,
