G:BOX mini


    Why buy this product

    • Luxury lens
      Great images start with a great lens and this F/0.95 motor driven lens with data feedback and automated focus is the best. Using GeneSys software, the G:BOX mini easily controls lens aperture size, focus and zoom to get the results you want to see.

    • High resolution cameras
      Choose between a 6 or 9 megapixel resolution camera. These work hard over a range of wavelengths to ensure you'll separate those close fluorescent bands and spots even on 2D gels.

    • Super low cooling
      Superior Peltier cooling of the camera lets you increase exposure times to detect your faint chemiluminescence without adding annoying background noise.

    • Filter choice
      A 7 position motor driven filter wheel controlled by GeneSys software allows you to add the filter for the fluorescent stain you like to work with. Since imaging ethidium bromide and SYBR(R) stained DNA gels are common, we've even included a UV filter to get you started.

    • Real imaging stage
      When you're working with smaller and low light emitting gels and blots, an automatic motor driven stage with automated focus is brilliant because it lets you get your samples closer to the camera, generating true to life optical images and not just digitally enhanced copies.

    • Total control
      Easily integrating a G:BOX mini to your choice of PC and printer gives you greater flexibility than using an integrated tablet, allowing you to run the GeneSys touch screen controls on a large screen, store a huge number of images and rapidly print low resolution all the way up to publication 
      quality pictures.

    • G:BOX mini mount option
      The G:BOX mini systems are now available with a cleverly-designed screen mount option. This sits neatly on top and lets you safely secure the screen to control the system or view gel and blot images. The mount does not come with a screen/monitor.
