Gel Documentation System for Whole Plant Imaging Application – Syngene G:BOX Helps Scientists Accurately Track and Analyze Fluorescent Proteins

Frederick, MD: Syngene, a world-leading manufacturer of image analysis solutions is delighted to announce that its advanced G:BOXChemi XT4 imaging system can be used to safely visualize and analyze fluorescently labeled proteins in whole plants, allowing scientists to accurately detect how much of their marker proteins are being expressed, and where.

Using a G:BOXChemi XT4 system fitted with safe, blue LED lighting and filter (Syngene UV, or short pass filters), fluorescent proteins such as GFP fusions of microtubule

binding proteins are easily visualized in whole plants. Since the light tight cabinet which comes with the G:BOXXT4 system is spacious, plants including Arabidopsis will easily fit into the cabinet.

To make plant imaging quick and simple, the G:BOXChemi XT4 system is controlled by Syngene’s intuitive GeneSys software, which automatically sets up the optimum imaging conditions for every fluorescently labeled protein. This means plant biologists can capture a high-quality whole plant image in seconds, with minimum training. To save time with quantifying proteins, the G:BOXChemi XT4 system also includes GeneTools image analysis software, enabling researchers to instantly determine how much of their marker proteins are being expressed.

Laura Sullivan, Syngene’s Divisional Manager explained: “Many researchers want to trace their plant proteins and record the results easily but until now there hasn’t been an imaging system that could do this quantitatively. We’re delighted that our technical team has worked on this problem to determine not only the best, but also the safest imaging conditions for visualizing fluorescently labeled plant proteins. This new application means the Syngene G:BOXChemi XT4 is the best system for plant biologists wanting a simple method of pinpointing where and how much of their fluorescent proteins are being expressed in whole plants.”

Syngene systems are available in New England and are sold direct and exclusively through New England BioGroup, LLC
