G:BOX Chemi XX6


    Walk Away Western Blot Imaging

    Your lab’s imaging system shouldn’t control how you detect proteins on Western blots. Chemiluminescence is great if you want sensitive detection of picogram or femtogram amounts, while fluorescence lets you quantify and detect multiple different proteins on one blot. With a G:BOX Chemi XX6/XX9 you can have it all. Powered by Syngene’s revolutionary GeneSys software featuring hundreds of imaging protocols, you’re free to choose chemiluminescence and fluorescence reagents from any manufacturer, putting you in charge of how you detect your proteins.

    Featuring an extended darkroom, you can choose between a 6 or 9 mega pixel, cooled, high quantum efficiency camera for unrivaled levels of sensitivity with minimal background interference.

    HI-LED lighting options  cover the full spectrum of high intensity blue, green, red and infra-red resulting in faster exposure times and publication quality images. An edge lighting option can also be used for 2D gel capture including the use of DIGE gels.

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

    Syngene offers a range of UV transilluminators suitable for all your imaging needs. Transilluminators are available in 230V 50Hz, 230V 60Hz (-E60), 115V 60Hz (-A), 115V 60Hz (-ACA) and 100V 50/60Hz (-J). Available wavelengths are short wave (254nm, 2020S or 2530S), medium wave (302nm, 2020M or 2530M) and long wave (365nm, 2020L or 2530L).





    UltraBright-LED transilluminator

    Blue light transilluminators are often used as an alternative to a UV transilluminator when users wish to use ‘safe dyes’ instead of Ethidium Bromide. A blue light transilluminator is a ‘safe’ light source, in that the user is not exposed to harmful UV radiation and samples are free from photonicking. The UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used instead of the UV transilluminator in all Syngene G:BOX systems.

    UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used with gels up to 20 x 16cm for use in the G:BOX series. This model uses side mounted 470nm LED arrays for illumination.





    UV-blue light converter screens

    These come in two sizes 21cm x 26cm and 25cm x 30cm and are used to change harmful UV into blue light. They are made of scratch resistant plastic and are easy to retrofit onto a UV transilluminator.





    Visible light converter screens

    These come in two sizes 30.5cm x 33cm and 23.5cm x 30cm and are used to change UV light into visible light, ideal for imaging Coomassie Blue and Silver Stained gels.





    EPI UV

    The Epi UV module can be fitted to any G:BOX Chemi darkroom (those produced after July 2010). The module fits above the standard LED white light module which is standard on all G:BOX Chemi systems. The Epi UV module can have either a 254nm, 365nm or 302nm tube. Either one or two modules can be fitted to each darkroom.






    The filter wheel takes the 72mm range of filters.






    The option to add a full spectrum of high intensity blue, green, red and infra-red HI-LEDs that are up to 200 times brighter than standard LEDs, offering faster exposure times and cost-effective imaging for a wide range of fluorescence gel and blot applications.

    The excitation ranges of the HI-LEDs (+/- 10nm)

    • Blue – Peak 470nm
    • Green – Peak 525nm
    • Red – Peak 623nm
    • IR – Peak 740nm






    Any printer with appropriate Windows drivers can be attached to the G:BOX Chemi. We recommend an A6 thermal printer such as Sony or Mitsubishi. These USB printers will “plug and play” with the G:BOX Chemi 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.





    Thermal paper

    Available as Matt or Glossy.





    UV tubes

    Short wave 8W, 254nm, Medium wave 8W, 302nm, Long wave 8W 365nm available.





    IQ/OQ/PQ procedures

    More and more laboratories require IQ/OQ/PQ verification these days. Syngene’s IQ/OQ/PQ procedures take the user through each step in the verification of a Syngene system in meeting the demands of the laboratory, regulatory compliances and standard operational procedures (SOP). These simple procedures allow the user to verify that a system meets defined installation, quality and performance specifications.
