Upgrade to GeneTools V4 1D Gel Analysis Software

Syngene has released GeneTools V4 (a) 1D gel image analysis software including new rapid, accurate band matching features.

This version of GeneTools includes Dice and Jaccard band matching algorithms that can automatically match bands or profiles by position, Rf value or calibrated molecular weight. Since each analysis takes only seconds, scientists can easily apply both algorithms to their bands to find out which ones appear in both data sets and are therefore true matches, thus improving result accuracy and saving time by eliminating numerous confirmatory gel runs.

As well as improved band matching, GeneTools V4 (a) also comes with installation support for working with Windows Vista 32 and includes a series of informative tutorials to show users how to get the most out of this versatile software.
