Need to quantify multiple different fluorescent proteins on one blot and capture images of chemi blots, but your lab is limited on space? Then the G:BOX mini is just the compact imaging powerhouse you’ve been looking for. With stain-free, RGB and IR excitation options for Alexa Fluor® 488, 546, 647 and IR dyes, you’re just a click away from brilliant multiplex images from one single Western.
Using the G:BOX mini you’ll also get perfectly exposed images of your chemi labelled proteins without the bother of film. Simply place your blot in the darkroom, click on GeneSys capture software and your imager will do the rest with no fuss and no messy chemicals.
G:BOX mini is a compact, multi-application imaging system combining a unique motor driven stage and cooled high resolution 6 or 9 megapixel camera enabling you to generate accurate optical images, not just digitally enhanced ones. With a G:BOX mini you’ll see separate close chemi and fluorescent bands or spots even on complex gels and know they’re really part of your data.
HI-LED lighting options cover the full spectrum of high intensity blue, green, red and infra-red resulting in faster exposure times and publication quality images.
The system is controlled by GeneSys application driven image capture software and comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.
Syngene's revolutionary GeneSys image acquisition software has been developed for use With G:BOX, G:BOX mini, GeneGnome and lnGenius3 systems. GeneSys ensures scientists can quickly capture excellent images of even complex multiplex gels.
The latest version of GeneSys has lots of fantastic and exciting new features. These include:
Enhanced image is a new feature in the edit screen and the number of steps for automatic capture have been reduced to ensure a quicker route to a Live image.
GeneSys software also includes QuickQuant, a feature for rapid band quantification analysis on blots or gels. For use in Syngene's G:BOX, G:BOX mini and GeneGnome systems, QuickQuant is ideal for scientists who need to perform rapid band quantifcation while they are using their imager. It makes it easy to analyse protein or DNA down to nanogram levels as soon as they have captured their gel or Western blot images.
GeneSys image capture software is suitable for a CFR21 Part 11 compliant environment.
GeneTools analysis software is intuitive, easy to navigate and includes comprehensive tools to provide a full range of analysis capabilities for many different applications:
GeneTools is supplied with every Syngene system and comes with free upgrades for life. Unlimited copies offered with all G:BOX and GeneGnome systems.
GeneTools software supports 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
