An extremely powerful densitometry package which enables the user to accurately
quantify band and lane material, rapidly determine molecular sizes, use a wide range of
image analysis tools for electrophoresis applications and export images graphics and data
to other Windows software packages. Many of the facilities such as background subtraction,
band detection and data calculation are automatic and there are a wide range of powerful
facilities for handling data from distorted gels. Phoretix 1D Standard does "Set the
Standard in electrophoresis image analysis".

Users and user selection.
Whilst Phoretix 1D Standard was designed to suit the general needs of most scientists
running electrophoresis gels, the added enhancements of Phoretix 1D Advanced were designed
with consideration to a wide range of specific applications. It is the ideal product for a
busy department with a range of analytical needs, or for individual scientists with
specific high level needs, especially those that involve band pattern matching.

developments will go into the Full version first.
This is a new and unique product that combines image analysis and high level database
technology with a specially developed interface that allows a very wide range band pattern
matching, lane relationship determination, database analysis and data subset querying
capabilities. It was developed for several specific applications including taxonomy,
epidemology, variety determination, population studies and other project work. The design
is such that it will be suitable for new novel applications as they arise.
