Gel imaging for infrared applications
The G:BOX Chemi IR6 is a fully configured gel documentation (gel doc) system for infrared (IR) applications. This high specification model easily out-performs laser based systems in terms of capability, and more importantly, at a fraction of the price.
G:BOX Chemi IR6 has a 6m pixel cooled CCD camera for superb image quality and a lighting system for the imaging of IR dyes such as LI-COR IRDye 680 and IRDye 800. The system has comparable sensitivity and has a limit of detection (LOD) the same, if not better, than the most popular laser based systems and high resolution to compete at the top end of these laser systems.
Other advantages of the G:BOX Chemi IR6 is that unlike laser based systems it can work across a very wide range of applications such as, DNA gel staining, blue light applications, Northern/Southern/Western blots, multiplexed Western blots, EMSA/gel shift assay, protein gel staining and many more without the need to change your standard protocols within the laboratory.
The G:BOX Chemi IR6 is ideal for chemiluminescence work and with the upgrade to the edge lighting unit, the system can also be used for 2D electrophoresis gels. This is truly a versatile package which would make an ideal workstation for the busy laboratory doing a wide range of applications.
The system comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.
Why buy this product?
Perfect for IR applications
Highly sensitive - this system has high intensity LED modules in both the far red and IR to accurately detect strong and weak signals over a broad linear dynamic range.
Comparable LOD to other laser based systems.
Fast imaging acquisition time - images can be captured in around 40 seconds compared to over 3 minutes with the fastest laser based system.
A versatile system
Image an extensive range of applications - DNA gel staining, protein gel staining, blue light applications, Northern/Southern/Western blots, multiplexing Western blots, EMSA/gel shift assay and many more.
Retain current laboratory protocols - no need to change any tried and trusted laboratory protocols unlike laser based systems which are restricted to just a few applications or specific dyes.
A sensible price
Cost effective - the G:BOX Chemi IR6 is a fraction of the price of a laser based system and you get a much more versatile system capable of many applications.
