Gel documentation systems, Axygen®

Supplier: Corning Life Sciences
Axygen® gel documentation systems easily capture publication quality, 16 bit TIFF images. The systems are quick to set up and have an intuitive user interface for image capture, annotation, and contrast adjustment. Images are easily saved and opened in common gel analysis software for more detailed analysis.

  • Auto exposure – no manual manipulation of the camera required
  • Ready to use system – just connnect to computer and load the software
  • Long-life dual wavelength transilluminators
  • Exceptionally high resolution (5,4 MP) camera
  • UV cut-off switch to prevent exposure to ultra-violet light if door is opened while the UV light is on
  • Transillumination bulbs last for 30 000 hours

The darkroom tab allows users to select from UV 302, UV 365, Epi white, or Epi blue (BL system only) light sources, as well as an optional trans white light illumination tray.

The Auto Exposure tool calculates the optimal exposure time with one click. The Slider tool can be used to manually adjust the exposure time and view an updated live image. The Select ROI tool calculates a region of interest. The Auto Exposure calculations are only based on the selected region. This feature is especially useful for gels that have either intense or faint bands.

The Band Excision tool allows the user to temporarily override the safety precautions in the system to view the gel with the light on.
NOTE: Protective eyewear must always be worn when working with UV light.

Imaging tools include crop, rotate, resize, contrast, saturation, and zoom. Annotation tools include a variety of text and drawing tools. Finished images can be saved, printed, emailed, or exported for further analysis.

The BL model has all the features of the standard system, as well as built-in blue lights and a built-on Microsoft® Windows® tablet. The blue lights are designed for use with EtBr replacement dyes to prevent damage to DNA that will be excised for subsequent analysis.

Ordering information: Microsoft Windows 7 or higher is required and must be ordered separately.

Delivery information: System includes a dual-wavelength transilluminator, 5,4 MP image resolution camera, and image acquisition software. The BL model includes a Windows® tablet computer.
