Chemiluminescence System Offers Quick and Easy Chemi Blot Imaging
22 Dec 2017
The new GeneGnome XRQ chemiluminescence imaging system from Syngene offers speedy, accurate and reliable chemi blot imaging, with remarkable sensitivity, after minimal operator training.
Syngene, a world-leading designer and manufacturer of image analysis instruments, has introduced its new GeneGnome XRQ imaging system. This is a dedicated chemiluminescence imaging system that rapidly and accurately images chemiluminescent Western blots.
The new, blue GeneGnome XRQ is based on the optimised short ‘camera to sample’ distance technology of Syngene’s award winning GeneGnome. It houses a high quality F/0.95 fixed focus, cooled camera with on chip integration and GeneSys software, within a light-tight ‘darkroom’.
This means operators save time and money by loading up their blots into a slide-out drawer and capture perfect chemiluminescent images without the use of expensive X-ray film.
The GeneGnome XRQ includes long-life white LED EPI lighting for viewing visible markers on the blot and requires little bench space. GeneSys software can be set up for single or multi-image capture with different exposure times simultaneously. The system is also easily connected to a PC and printer (if required), for researchers to automatically calculate molecular weight and protein quantity using Syngene’s GeneTools image analysis software.
