UN-SCAN-IT Graph Digitizing Software converts any scanner into an automatic graph digitizer. Now you can digitize and extract (x,y) data values from published graphs, old plots, strip charts, or any other hard copy graph image in 4 easy steps…
Gel Analysis Software
UN-SCAN-IT gel – Gel Analysis Software turns any scanner into a gel densitometer. Now you can quantify Western blots, Protein Gels, PCR, Coomassie stains, Dot Blots, TLC, or any other gel electrophoresis image in 4 easy steps…
About Silk Scientific
In 1988, Silk Scientific Inc. was founded by Jeff Silk, in response to a need for extracting digital data from hard copy graphs. Our first product was the UN‑PLOT‑IT optical pen system, which used a plotter to automatically extract (x,y) coordinates from graphs. In 1992, the UN‑SCAN‑IT software replaced the UN‑PLOT‑IT system. The UN‑SCAN‑IT software uses a scanner to digitize graphs (instead of a plotter), and is much faster and easier to use than the UN‑PLOT‑IT system. In 1994, we introduced and added the UN‑SCAN‑IT gel software, which is designed to replace expensive and complex densitometer systems, by allowing electrophoresis gels to be quantified directly from a standard scanner.
Since the introduction of the UN‑SCAN‑IT and UN‑SCAN‑IT gel software, we have continually strived to improve and update the software by adding user-friendly features, thus making the software more powerful and intuitive. In addition, we have created customized versions of the software to meet the specific need of many customers. UN‑SCAN‑IT and UN‑SCAN‑IT gel are now used in all 50 states and more than 80 countries throughout the world, and have been referenced in over 4000 scientific publications. Most major U.S. universities, as well as many large corporations and foreign institutions, now use our software regularly in their research and data analysis endeavors.
After more than a quarter century of developing digitizing software, we continue our commitment to providing powerful, affordable, and easy to use graph digitizing software and gel analysis software to the scientific community. In addition, we have also introduced a physical therapy App for the iPhone and iPod Touch (Gaitometer App). Thank you for your interest in our products and for your support.
