Compact fluorescent and chemi Western blot imaging system

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.
