Walk Away Western Blot Imaging

Your lab’s imaging system shouldn’t control how you detect proteins on Western blots. Chemiluminescence is great if you want sensitive detection of picogram or femtogram amounts, while fluorescence lets you quantify and detect multiple different proteins on one blot. With a G:BOX Chemi XX6/XX9 you can have it all. Powered by Syngene’s revolutionary GeneSys software featuring hundreds of imaging protocols, you’re free to choose chemiluminescence and fluorescence reagents from any manufacturer, putting you in charge of how you detect your proteins.

Featuring an extended darkroom, you can choose between a 6 or 9 mega pixel, cooled, high quantum efficiency camera for unrivaled levels of sensitivity with minimal background interference.

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. An edge lighting option can also be used for 2D gel capture including the use of DIGE gels.

The system is controlled by GeneSys application driven image capture software and comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.

Syngene offers a range of UV transilluminators suitable for all your imaging needs. Transilluminators are available in 230V 50Hz, 230V 60Hz (-E60), 115V 60Hz (-A), 115V 60Hz (-ACA) and 100V 50/60Hz (-J). Available wavelengths are short wave (254nm, 2020S or 2530S), medium wave (302nm, 2020M or 2530M) and long wave (365nm, 2020L or 2530L).

UltraBright-LED transilluminator

Blue light transilluminators are often used as an alternative to a UV transilluminator when users wish to use ‘safe dyes’ instead of Ethidium Bromide. A blue light transilluminator is a ‘safe’ light source, in that the user is not exposed to harmful UV radiation and samples are free from photonicking. The UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used instead of the UV transilluminator in all Syngene G:BOX systems.

UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used with gels up to 20 x 16cm for use in the G:BOX series. This model uses side mounted 470nm LED arrays for illumination.

UV-blue light converter screens

These come in two sizes 21cm x 26cm and 25cm x 30cm and are used to change harmful UV into blue light. They are made of scratch resistant plastic and are easy to retrofit onto a UV transilluminator.
