Silk Scientific, Inc. Company Profile

16:35 EDT 21st March 2018 | BioPortfolio

In 1988, Silk Scientific, Inc. was founded 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-PLOT-IT system was replaced by our new UN-SCAN-IT software. The UN-SCAN-IT software uses a scanner to digitize graphs, and is much faster and easier to use. In 1994, we added features to UN-SCAN-IT for digitizing and quantifying electrophoresis gels. The UN-SCAN-IT gel software can replace expensive densitometer systems.Since the introduction of UN-SCAN-IT and UN-SCAN-IT gel, we have continued to improve and update the software by continually adding user-friendly features, making the software more powerful and intuitive. UN-SCAN-IT and UN-SCAN-IT gel are now used in all 50 states, and over 60 countries throughout the world. Most major U.S. universities and corporations, as well as many foreign institutions, now use our software regularly in their research and data analysis endeavors
