Description

InGenius3 has a 3.0 million pixel camera and can produce images with 16 bit image depth. A manual zoom lens and manual filter drawer (includes a UV filter) completes the package.

There are two options of transilluminator - both models can slide out of the darkroom to aid cutting and viewing. One option is the slimline 302 nm transilluminator for UV applications. This can be used with an optional converter for white light applications. InGenius3 can also be used with a Ultra-Slim LED blue light transilluminator.

The system is controlled by the new GeneSys software. An external PC is required optimised for Windows 7 Pro and with a screen resolution set to a minimum of 768 vertical.

The system comes complete with GeneTools analysis software and UV table.

GeneSys

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:

  • Two new Chemi capture features (Auto Chemi Rapid and Signal Accumulation Calculator (SAC))
  • The ability to capture colour markers and overlay with a chemi image
  • Batch saving of images
  • "Save as" replaces 'Export for publication'

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 image capture software is suitable for a CFR21 Part 11 compliant environment.
