Getting to Know Your Bio-5000
The Bio-5000 is a combined flatbed and film scanner for electrophoresis gels and film
formats that also offers additional functionality to scan reflective art or prints as large
as 8.5" x 14". The Bio-5000 is equipped with Microtek's patented Emulsion Direct
Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.) for delivering distortion-free images in transparency
scanning. The 0.05 minimum optical density (Dmin) provides a wider and clearer range
for capturing light tones of images.

Features of the Bio-5000
The Bio-5000 comes with several important features, including the following:
2
•
One machine to scan all: With specially designed Leak-Free Glass Holders, the
Bio-5000 allows you to scan electrophoresis gels and transparent films directly in
the machine. It also supports scanning of reflective materials, such as photos and
prints.
•
Microtek's Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.): This is a patented
“glassless” scanning system built into the lower bay of Microtek’s dual media
scanners, allowing the scanner CCD to directly read the emulsion side of the film
during scanning without any interfering pane of glass. This effectively eliminates
problems associated with normal glass transparency scanning like Newton Rings,
resulting in distortion-free images.
•
Auto Focus: An image improvement feature introduced to Microtek flatbeds, Auto
Focus allows the scanner to change the focus position on images through the
movement of the CCD, resulting in better image quality for a chosen area of the
scan. Auto Focus is activated by default when the scanner is on but can be
switched off manually before the final scan is carried out. The results of Auto
Focus can be best seen when used with uneven, creased photos and film.
•
4800 x 9600-dpi resolution: The exceptionally high resolution of the Bio-5000 lets
you scan even postage-size images and enlarge them with amazing clarity, with
little loss of detail. The scanner's 0.05 minimum optical density (Dmin) allows it to
capture a wide range of dark tones approximating real-life color and hues.
•
Microtek ScanWizard™ Bio scanning software: This is an advanced scanner
controller program that provides many powerful, professional-level features for
scanning.
•
Hi-Speed USB interface: High-Speed USB (USB 2.0) , which is capable of 480Mbps
data transfer, provides plug-and-play connectivity for a hassle-free installation.

Unlocking the Scanner
Before you can operate the scanner, you will need to unlock the scanner. To unlock
the scanner, follow the steps below:
1. Remove the yellow “Unlock” sticker
from your scanner.
2. Look for the unlocking screw at the
bottom of the scanner.
3. Using a screwdriver, push and turn
the locking screw counterclockwise
to the unlock position.
When successfully unlocked, the
screw will push out a little,
protruding slightly from the bottom
of the scanner.
Shipping the Scanner
If you have to transport the scanner, you will need to lock the scanner back. Follow
the steps below:
1. Turn off the scanner if your scanner
is on.
2. Turn the scanner back on. The
scanner’s carriage will move to the
standby position in 5 minutes.
3. When the indicators on the front of
your scanner stop blinking, use a
screwdriver, and then push and turn
the locking screw clockwise to the
locked position.
When the screw has been tightened, this indicates that your scanner is locked.
4. Turn off your scanner. The scanner is now ready for transport.

Positioning Your Originals
Aside from the scanning of reflectives, there are two pieces of Leak-Free Glass
Holders come with your scanner package, which are specifically designed to scan
electrophoresis gels and transparent film.

Proper positioning of the scan material on the scanner is important for successful
scanning. Before starting scanning, refer to the individual section in the succeeding
pages about how to correctly position the electrophoresis gels, transparent film, and
reflectives.
Before proceeding your scan, take note of the information presented below:
• When using the Leak-Free Glass Holders, make sure you use
the correct side up when inserting the holders into the scanner.
The correct side up is the side showing the holder labels facing
up.

• Please take note that the high temperature may cause the damage
to your electrophoresis gels, transparencies and reflective
materials. Therefore, remember to turn off the scanner and remove
the scanned materials from the scanner once you finish the scan
job.
LE
• Make sure that the calibration strip on the holders are kept clear
and free of obstruction at all times; no material should ever be
placed on this area. Also, make sure the calibration strip faces the
front of the scanner when you insert the holder into the lower
compartment of the Bio-5000.

Note: The Leak-Free Glass Holders require regular cleaning. To clean, use mild glass cleaning solution, and
wipe the glass plate gently with lint-free, lens-cleaning cloth to prevent leaving fiber residue.

Scanning Originals Applied with Auto Focus
By default, the Auto Focus function is
activated when your Scan Material is set as
Positive Film or Negative Film. It is disabled
when your Scan Material is set as
Reflective. If you like to apply the Auto
Focus function to your reflective originals,
such as photos or prints, you need to go to
the Preferences menu and to select the
More... command, and then check the Auto
Focus to activate this function.
1. Follow steps 1 to 3 in the previous scanning scenarios to place your scan material
(electrophoresis gel, reflective or film), and to launch ScanWizard Bio.
2. Click the Overview button to perform a preliminary scan of the image.
If this is the first time to scan your scan material, you can see a flashing frame
(enclosed by dotted lines) together with a default Auto Focus target sign ( )
appearing on the preview area. The Auto Focus target sign marks the area where
the Auto Focus is applied to.
3. To apply the Auto Focus function to the image, use either of the ways below:
•
The area applied with the Auto Focus function is decided and selected by the
software system automatically.
Click the Overview button to perform a preliminary scan of the image, which
will appear in the Preview window. Immediately, you can see a target sign ( )
appearing on the overview image. The target sign marks the area where the
Auto Focus is applied to. In this case, the software system automatically
detects, calculates and selects the area applied with the Auto Focus function.
