Automated image analysis
Syngene, which manufactures image-analysis solutions, has introduced a new range of GeneGnome automated image analysers, designed for imaging chemiluminescent samples.
The new system comes complete with a 16-bit cooled camera inside a compact, light-tight cabinet, and a new white-light source for the added flexibility of imaging coloured markers. The camera is fully integrated to a processor and flat-screen monitor for easy viewing and offers fast and accurate molecular weight analysis.
Available in several versions, capable of imaging samples up to 17 x 15cm, the new range includes GeneTools, Syngene's image-analysis software. This can produce results -- including; 1D lane analysis, molecular weight and quantity calculations -- automatically in less than eight seconds.
