Syngene Launches Sensitive PXi Access Imaging Range            For Unrivalled Detection of Faint Bands on Large Blots and Gels

Syngene, a world-leading manufacturer of image analysis solutions today introduced the new PXi Access range of compact, multi-application imaging systems. The easy-to-use PXi Access systems offer major advances on film detection and can rapidly generate high quality images of virtually all types of large blots and gels.

The new compact PXi 6 or 9 Access systems are complete with high performance cameras capable of imaging a wide range of blot and gel types and sizes. The camera in each PXi Access features superb optics, which means scientists can set up quickly and detect even the faintest amounts of DNA or protein with a much greater sensitivity than film.

PXi Access is so flexible that the systems can image stain-free gels and blots or those stained with any commercial chemiluminescence, fluorescence, visible and IR dyes.  For imaging chemi blots, the PXi Access uses a wide dynamic range to optimize exposure for each protein, accurately quantifying abundant and poorly expressed proteins, making this a much simpler method than using film for
producing Western blot results.

Featuring a touch screen controlled by GeneSys software, PXi Access Touch offers an intuitive user experience that makes capturing images so simple. In just one click scientists can have publication-quality images of blots and gels (up to 21cm x 17cm) with a PXi 6 and 9 Access.
“We are delighted to be introducing affordable imagers that perform so amazingly across a range of diverse applications,” says Simon Leath, VP of Sales & Marketing, “the combination of technology and expertise in the PXi Access range, makes them this year’s go to systems for laboratories demanding unrivalled versatility and high quality results from their western blot and gel analysis.”
