Syngene says its new-look gel doc imagers and chemi blot imaging systems are suited to cost-conscious scientists who need versatility.
The NuGenius gel doc has an internal processor and 5 megapixel CCD camera with zoom, able to capture images of gels up to 20 x 24cm.
It has a compact darkroom which can accommodate a UV transilluminator for ethidium bromide gels, a blue light transilluminator for SYBR Safe and GelGreen DNA gels, or a white light converter screen for protein gels stained with Coomassie Blue.
The company’s GeneGnome XRQ imager is also new, having a low-light camera and optimised technology providing more than double the dynamic range of film.
This should result in perfectly exposed images to detect picogram or femtogram levels of protein on chemi Western blots, without the advantages of digital imaging.
Syngene is demonstrating these systems at Arablab 2018, 18-21 March at the Dubai Exhibition Centre.
