Syngene introduced G:BOX EF, its new gel documentation system capable of producing images of gels and blots stained with both visible and low light-emitting fluorescent dyes. The G:BOX EF features a 16-bit, lightly cooled CCD camera inside a light-tight darkroom, integrated to GeneSnap image capture software. This makes generating images of gels and blots labelled with fluorescent dyes emitting faint or slow developing signals.
To ensure the G:BOX EF can visualize common fluorescent and visible dyes, the darkroom comes with Syngene’s transilluminator, white Epi overhead lighting, and NovaGlo Visible light converter. For imaging with commercially available fluorescent dyes, researchers can also have Syngene’s new computer-controlled EPI RGB lighting module and filter wheel attached to their G:BOX EF.
