Next-generation G:BOX imaging systems introduced

Syngene has announced that its new-generation G:BOX Chemi XX6/XX9 multi-application imaging systems are now available. Featuring the latest ultrasensitive, fast capture lens, these systems ensure users can have total confidence that their gel and blot results are accurate and publication-ready.

Utilising a state-of-the-art wide aperture f0.8 lens, the camera in the next-generation G:BOX Chemi XX6/XX9 systems can capture more light, which means shorter excitation times when imaging IR and R,G,B fluorescence blots and gels, thus reducing photobleaching and generating more accurate results. The high-performance lens also speeds up chemiluminescence imaging and lowers reagent costs by reducing the amount of expensive antibodies needed to visualise bands.

The super-sensitive lens combined with special motorised stage in the G:BOX Chemi XX6/XX9 systems also captures sharp, true-to-life images, allowing researchers to resolve close bands and visualise bright and faint bands on the same image. As the results are optical and not just digitally enhanced, scientists can be certain the bands they detect are real, making these systems ideal for quantifying DNA and proteins precisely, down to the femtogram level on a range of gels and blots.
