Microarray Scanners & Slide Loaders

GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner

Fast, high-quality imaging for two-color microarrays

The popular GenePix® 4000B Microarray Scanner has earned its outstanding reputation due to its incredible, intuitive, and reliable operation. Our commitment to engineering excellence guarantees that the GenePix 4000B Microarray Scanner remains the benchmark in microarray scanning technology. In 2010 we updated the electronics to provide a state-of-the-art microarray scanner with the finest quality components while maintaining the features and performance that you have become accustomed to.

GenePix products are available with GSA pricing and comply with the Buy American Act (BAA - 41 U.S.C. § 10a-10d).   Please contact your local sales representative or click the link to receive more information.   To learn more about Molecular Devices compliance and support of the Buy American Act, please click here  

  • Speed. 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.
  • Add Reliability to Your Research. 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.
  • Automate Your 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 micron, allowing the adjustment of image resolution and file size for each experiment.
  • Get More Published. 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.
