Frederick, MD: Syngene, a world-leading manufacturer of image analysis sol-
utions is delighted to introduce PXi, a new high resolution, multi-application image
analysis system. This powerful system is currently the best in its class for
scientists that want a compact, one-click method for accurately imaging chemi-
luminescent and fluorescent blots, as well as 1-D gels (up to 10cm x 12 cm)
stained with any type of fluorescent dye.
The innovatively designed compact PXi, with its high resolution 6.3 million pixel
camera and large fixed aperture lens can quickly image even the faintest bands.
It is easy to fit a range of lighting including IR lighting and filter options inside the
PXi system and by using Syngene’s intuitive GeneSys imaging software, the PXi
can be rapidly set up to automatically select the best conditions. Scientists can
generate perfect images of chemiluminescent blots, as well as 1-D gels (up to
10cm x 12cm) stained with any fluorescence and IR commercial dyes time after
time, with just one-click.
GeneTools, Syngene’s accurate image analysis software, which comes with the
PXi saves valuable time by automatically producing results in seconds, including;
1-D lane analysis, molecular weight and quantity calculations.
Laura Sullivan, Syngene’s Divisional Manager stated: “Syngene is well known for
its imaging innovation and using the technology from our popular G:BOX, we have
really pulled out all the stops by developing a unique high performance imaging
system. The system is so compact, yet produces exceptional images of every type
of chemi blot, as well as fluorescent blots and gels.”
