GeneGnome XRQ


    Dedicated chemiluminescence imaging system – great Westerns without film

    You love the sensitivity that chemi brings to Western blot imaging but hate the drama of using film to get it. Utilising the GeneGnome XRQ’s optimised short ‘camera to sample’ technology, you’ll get more than double the dynamic range of film, making it easy for you to see picogram or femtogram protein levels without all the fuss.

    The GeneGnomeXRQ is dedicated to chemiluminescence imaging and is built for high performance and automation, featuring a high quantum efficiency CCD camera.

    The compact instrument sits on any laboratory bench taking up very little space. The GeneGnome XRQ requires an external PC for use.

    The system is controlled by GeneSys application driven image capture software and comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.


    Dedicated chemi imaging system

    • Small footprint
      More space for your research
    • High quantum efficiency (QE) camera
      Detects your faintest bands
    • Automated chemiluminescent capture
      Perfect exposure without film
    • Cooled camera
      No annoying background noise on your blots
    • Fixed lens controlled by GeneSys software
      One click and you’ll image any manufacturer’s chemi reagents
    • GeneSys application driven image capture software
      Contains extensive database of dyes and imaging protocols. All you need to know is the type of blot you’re using and GeneSys automatically selects the optimal lighting and filters to produce the perfect image
    • GeneTools analysis software (unlimited copies)
      Analyse data on your own computer
    • Optimised – for imaging chemiluminescence Western blots
      GeneGnome XRQ is configured for maximum sensitivity to ensure even the faintest band on a blot can be captured.
    • Sensitive cooled camera
      The high quantum efficiency cooled CCD camera is very sensitive to low level light emissions from a blot. The peltier cooled camera has exceptional ‘signal to noise’ performance resulting in virtually undetectable background noise. The short ‘camera to sample’ distance further enhances the ability to work with chemiluminescence samples and reagents. When compared to film, the GeneGnome XRQ has more than double the dynamic range. This allows for extremely accurate quantification.
    • Small footprint
      The GeneGnome XRQ has a very small footprint and takes up minimal bench space. The automatic slide-out drawer allows easy sample handling. The fixed aperture and focus of the lens results in a very simple set-up procedure making image capture as simple as a click of a mouse button.

    Any printer with appropriate Windows drivers can be used with the InGenius3. We recommend a thermal A6 printer such as Mitsubishi. These USB printers will “plug and play” with the InGenius3 computer and require minimal set up. They will print hard copies of images in under 5 seconds on long life glossy thermal paper to give photographic quality images.
