Axygen Gel Documentation systems easily capture publication quality, 16 bit TIFF images. The Axygen Gel Documentation System is an ideal system for labs that want good value without compromising ease of use or image quality. It includes a dual-wavelength transilluminator, 5.4 MP image resolution camera, and image acquisition software (PC not included).

Features and Benefits:

  • Darkroom tab lets you 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.
  • Auto Exposure tool calculates the optimal exposure time with just a single click. You can also use the Slider tool to manually adjust the exposure time and view an updated live image.
  • Select ROI tool allows you to select 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.
  • Band Excision tool allows you to temporarily override the safety precautions in the system to view the gel with the lights on.**
  • 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.
