Compact and cost-effective gel doc system

Syngene has introduced its new red InGenius3 gel documentation system. Designed with a small darkroom for use with a choice of ultraviolet (UV), blue and white lighting, the InGenius3 is aimed at laboratories looking for a versatile, budget system to image both DNA and protein gels accurately.

The InGenius3 gel doc features a three-million-pixel CCD camera, integrated to a compact light-tight darkroom and overhead Epi LED white lighting for perfect gel positioning. The darkroom has a slide out drawer which can accommodate UV, blue and white lighting options, allowing users the flexibility to image fluorescent and visibly stained gels. The system can be connected to the laboratory’s choice of PC and is controlled by protocol-driven GeneSys software, which selects the best combination of filters and lighting available, making it easy to set up an InGenius3 to detect nanogram amounts of DNA and protein on gels of up to 20 x 20 cm.

The InGenius3 can be used with a UV transilluminator for ethidium bromide gels, a blue light transilluminator or blue converter screen for SYBR Safe and GelGreen DNA gels and there is a White Light Converter screen option for those who need to visualise protein gels stained with Coomassie Blue or silver.

The InGenius3 system comes with unlimited copies of GeneTools image analysis software, enabling scientists to calculate molecular weight and DNA or protein quantity, as well as store or print high-resolution and publication-quality images on any computer.
