High-precision robotic operation ensures careful transfer and safe positioning of your precious microarray slides. The entire system fits easily on a standard laboratory bench top and provides simple robotic or manual scanning of slides. The slide loader accommodates low- and high-density; opaque, mirrored, or translucent; plastic or glass; commercial or homebrew slides. The GenePix® SL50 Automated Slide Loader, the GenePix® 4300 or 4400 Microarray Scanners, and GenePix® Pro Acquisition and Analysis Software have been designed to work together as a fully integrated platform. The seamless communication among scanner, slide loader, and software ensures unmatched efficiency for data acquisition and analysis, as well as for real-time performance monitoring.
