Syngene GeneGnome XRQ | Western Blot Imager

Syngene is the most popular gel documentation system in New England.

If raw data, high sensitivity, image resolution, an affordable price, and great service are important factors in making your decision for a gel imaging system, contact us or call (617)286-4632.

A high sensitivity chemiluminescent detection system for your Western blot. User defined protocol, no focusing, a three year warranty and great price. Base model under $10K

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.
