Syngene’s revolutionary GeneSys image acquisition software has been developed for use with G:BOX, G:BOX mini, GeneGnome and InGenius3 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. See Features for further information.
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. Click here for further information about CFR 21 Part 11 compliance
- Application driven
Intuitive software. The user only needs to tell GeneSys which application they are using along with their gel or blot size and the software will automatically configure the system for that application. At the heart of GeneSys is an extensive database that contains over 300 commercially available dyes and stains.
- Flexible imaging of chemi Western blots
Capture a single image through Chemi Rapid and Chemi Blot (Single Image) and a series of images through Chemi Blot (Series) and Signal Accumulation Calculator (SAC) giving the user the flexibility of choosing the optimum image capture for them.
- Colour markers
GeneSys makes it easy to image colour markers on chemiluminescent western blots by automatically overlaying your colour marker image with your chemi image.
- Stain free imaging
For use in Syngene’s G:BOX Chemi and G:BOX mini imaging systems, the GeneSys software includes a “stain free” imaging icon. The icon has been set up using optimum filter and lighting conditions that Syngene’s technical specialists have determined can accurately detect nanogram levels of protein on a Stain Free gel.
- Dynamic fielding
This powerful feature auto-corrects for edge effects caused by all lens and lighting in imaging systems, providing a consistent image for scientists to accurately quantify DNA and proteins on their gels.
- Improved workflow
Capturing all images in the GeneSys workflow has been streamlined. See a live image and capture at the same time.
- Ability to save user protocols
Protocols save the sample type, dyes, lighting and filters used and the position of the iris/focus and sample size so the user clicks only one button to capture an image.
- Batch saving of images
Simple way of saving series and multiplexed images in one go in the .SGD format (suitable for GLP environments).
- Save As
To export images as displayed or captured and select bit depth and change the dpi for publication quality images. Save in the following formats: TIFF, JPEG or BMP.
- Editing functions
The user is able to enhance the image to help to detect more bands on a chemi Western blot, add annotations, view 3D images, save or print.
Rapid band quantification and molecular weight analysis of your gels and blots. QuickQuant can measure total and average quantities, can determine relative and actual amounts of DNA and protein, as well as detect the presence/absence and up/down regulation of bands and their associated molecular weights.
