What is a 1SC file?
A 1SC file is an image created by Bio-Rad Quantity One, a gel electrophoresis result analyzer. It contains a digital copy of a gel electrophoresis result. 1SC files are used to analyze results and share them with other Bio-Rad users.
Biochemists use Bio-Rad gel imaging systems to record and analyze the results of gel electrophoresis tests. For example, a biochemist may use a Bio-Rad system to record and analyze the result of a western blot, which is a test that detects specific proteins in a tissue sample.
Bio-Rad Quantity One is an analysis program that biochemists use to import, analyze, and save digital copies of their gel electrophoresis results. The images Quantity One creates are saved as 1SC files.
How to open a 1SC file
You can open a 1SC file in Bio-Rad Quantity One (Windows). Those who do not have access to Bio-Rad Quantity One can use ImageJ and its accompanying Bio-Formats library (cross-platform) to view 1SC images.
