The GenePix® 4300A & 4400A Microarray Scanners set the highest standards for microarray instrumentation with their powerful set of new and enhanced features designed for unsurpassed resolution, superior performance, and multispectral imaging in today's life sciences labs.
An ideal balance of powerful and flexible features provides the best benefits for a broad variety of microarray applications. Together with GenePix® Pro Software , have a well-rounded system for acquisition and analysis of microarray images.
Upgrade for the Future:
While the GenePix® 4300A Microarray Scanner has a maximum resolution of 5µm per pixel; it can be upgraded to 2.5 micron per pixel resolution at any time. So there is an option to match the scanner resolution as the microarray research requirements advance.
Full Flexibility in Choosing Dyes:
With up to four internal solid-state diode and gas lasers, the scanner is a remarkably compact bench-top unit. The laser flexibility and choice of up to 12 user-accessible emission filters allows to select the dyes from a broad variety of fluorophores for the assay (CyTM3 and CyTM5 dyes, Fluorescein, GFP, Texas Red, Alexa Fluor® dyes, or quantum dots.
Trust Microarray Signals:
with outstanding positional performance and uniformity, the GenePix® 4300 and 4400 Microarray Scanners allows to perform the most demanding application, like latest generation NimbleGen® arrays or array CGH experiments. Specified and tested for a field uniformity of +/- 2%, these scanners resolve a spatial frequency of 200 line pairs per millimeter (LPPM), and feature a contrast ratio (CTF) of least 50% at the highest resolution.
Less Breakable Components:
The microarray is a safe scanner. With the newly designed six-point-slide holder, the exclusive rely on high-precision machining to eliminate fallible components as commonly used in dynamic autofocus systems.
