Optimize resource usage

The versatility of the Odyssey M Imager makes it an economical choice for your lab.

Because the Odyssey M performs the role of multiple imagers in one, you get the most out of your lab resources. The Odyssey M replaces the following instruments–meaning it could save you up to 59 percent by eliminating the need to purchase multiple imagers.

Not only can the Odyssey M free up funds, but it can also free up bench space to simplify your work area while maximizing your imaging options. Additionally, you can significantly lower your costs to store digital slide images with whole slide triage imaging.

Odyssey M does the work of several competitor imagers in one machine.
Instrument Detection Method Price Range (USD)
Western blot and gel imaging system1 Multiplex fluorescence, chemiluminescence, and colorimetric $50,500 to $114,500
Multimode plate reader2 Absorbance, fluorescence, and luminescence $20,000 to $29,000
Whole slide imager3 Bright-field and fluorescence $46,500 to $136,000
Total: $117,000 to $279,500
1 LED and laser-based Western blot imagers
2 Plate readers capable of reading 1 microplate (the Odyssey M can do 4)
3 Whole slide imagers with a capacity of 1 to 12 slides (the Odyssey M can do 12)

Reclaim your time

From acquisition through analysis, quickly get the results you need to answer research questions–or to ask new ones.

The Odyssey M provides a large scan area and a dynamic range of more than 6 logs. Where possible, all data is captured in one acquisition–without rescanning. New Odyssey M applications, such as whole slide triage imaging, enable you to complete your work in a fraction of the time.

The Odyssey M uses innovative software to multiply your efforts and make the most out of your time in the lab. User-definable scan areas in LI-COR Acquisition Software ensure you only scan the regions you’re interested in, and Empiria Studio® Software streamlines your statistical analysis to yield in-depth results in minutes–not hours.

Get reliable results

The industry’s most sophisticated imager enables you to make discoveries and decisions quickly with confidence.

The line confocal scanning system of the Odyssey M utilizes sCMOS sensor technology to deliver an industry-leading 5-micron resolution. This system provides uniform illumination and optimal sensitivity across all 18 channels to see even subtle changes.

The 5-micron resolution provides exceptional detail for tissue section imaging, and over 6-logs of dynamic range eliminates imager saturation in biologically relevant samples. The Odyssey M Imager delivers the most accurate results to keep your research moving forward.

Acquire and analyze consistently

The Odyssey M Imaging System pairs your Odyssey M Imager with LI-COR Acquisition Software and Empiria Studio Software to maximize data quality, consistency, and replicability using best practices provided by industry experts.

To minimize variability, all images are captured using the same optical settings. Users don’t need to alter exposure time or laser intensity to obtain non-saturated images, and image adjustments never change the raw data.

Guided workflows in LI-COR Acquisition Software and Empiria Studio Software along with features, such as Adaptive Lane Finding and Adaptive Background Subtraction, further eliminate sources of variability.


LI-COR Acquisition Software

LI-COR Acquisition Software

LI-COR Acquisition Software is used to acquire, organize, and adjust images from your Odyssey M Imager. Workflows guide you through the necessary steps using identical settings based on assay type to minimize sources of variability. Images are organized by assay and can be adjusted then exported for publication or analysis in Empiria Studio Software.

Empiria Studio

Empiria Studio Software

Designed for the analysis of a variety of assay images acquired on an Odyssey imager, Empiria Studio is the only software developed using best practices to guide you all the way from validation to statistical analysis for reliable results. Streamlined workflows minimize user-to-user variation, compute statistical values, and provide extensive analysis options.
