Axygen® Gel Documentation systems easily capture publication quality, 16 bit TIFF images. The systems are quick to set up and have an intuitive user interface for image capture, annotation, and contrast adjustment. Images are easily saved and opened in common gel analysis software for more detailed analysis.
Auto exposure—you never have to manually manipulate the camera
Ready-to-use—just connect the computer* and load the software
Long-life dual wavelength transilluminators
Exceptionally high resolution (5.4 MP) camera
The cabinet is compact with an ultra-violet (UV) cut-off switch to prevent exposure to UV light if the cabinet door is opened while the UV light is on.
Darkroom tab lets you select from UV 302, UV 365, Epi White, or Epi Blue (BL system only) light sources, as well as an optional Trans White light illumination tray.
Auto Exposure tool calculates the optimal exposure time with just a single click. You can also use the Slider tool to manually adjust the exposure time and view an updated live image.
Select ROI tool allows you to select a region of interest. The Auto Exposure calculations are only based on the selected region. This feature is especially useful for gels that have either intense or faint bands.
Band Excision tool allows you to temporarily override the safety precautions in the system to view the gel with the lights on.**
Imaging tools include crop, rotate, resize, contrast, saturation, and zoom. Annotation tools include a variety of text and drawing tools. Finished images can be saved, printed, emailed, or exported for further analysis.
Transillumination bulbs last for 30,000 hours—which equals over 3.5 years if the bulbs were in continuous use.
** Always wear protective eyewear when working with UV light.
