The GenePix® 4000B Microarray Scanner is a benchmark for quality, reliability and ease-of-use in microarray scanning technology. Coupled with GenePix® ProMicroarray Image Analysis Software and Acuity® Microarray Informatics Software, the GenePix System sets the highest standards in the acquisition and analysis of data from all types of arrays, including nucleic acids, proteins, tissues, and cells.
Simultaneous Dual-laser Scanning. Unlike most commercially available microarray scanners, the GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner acquires data at two wavelengths simultaneously. This means drastically reduced scan times and hence greater workflow efficiency. Apart from superior speed, simultaneous scanning eliminates potential errors associated with aligning two separately scanned images, and provides real-time access to data as they are acquired.
Reliable Results.The performance calibration standards that come with your GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner allow you to check the performance when you receive your scanner and at any time in the future. GenePix® Pro Acquisition and Analysis Software includes one-touch calibration to restore any GenePix scanner to benchmark performance. You can rest assured knowing the signals you generate today are the same as a couple of years ago and in the future
Automated Workflow. With automated photomultiplier (PMT) balancing, the fully integrated GenePix Pro Acquisition and Analysis Software controls the GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner and can automatically evaluate the required PMT gain values for fast and easy optimization of signal intensity and channel balance. The GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner then acquires data at your selected resolution between 5-100 microns, allowing the adjustment of image resolution and file size for each experiment.
More Publications. For over 10 years and close to 6000 literature references, the GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner has expanded the overall sample compatibility, with user-adjustable focus offset and laser power settings. This allows proper imaging of slides with either a raised surface, as with membrane-coated glass, or a recessed surface, as in embedded arrays.
