Syngene has introduced its new PXi Access range of compact, multi-application imaging systems. The easy-to-use systems offer major advances on film detection and can rapidly generate high quality images of virtually all types of large blots and gels.
The new compact PXi 6 or 9 Access systems are complete with high performance cameras capable of imaging a wide range of blot and gel types and sizes. The camera in each system features superb optics, which means scientists can set up quickly and detect even the faintest amounts of DNA or protein with a much greater sensitivity than film.
PXi Access is so flexible that the systems can image stain-free gels and blots or those stained with any commercial chemiluminescence, fluorescence, visible and IR dyes. For imaging chemi blots, the solution uses a wide dynamic range to optimise exposure for each protein, accurately quantifying abundant and poorly expressed proteins, making this a much simpler method than using film for producing Western blot results.
Featuring a touchscreen controlled by GeneSys software, the system offers an intuitive user experience that makes capturing images simple. In just one click scientists can have publication-quality images of blots and gels (up to 21cm x 17cm).
