Microarray scanners for one-fluor to mullti-fluor applications

The GenePix®Microarray Systemsare based on 25 years of expertise in low-noise signal amplification and optical design. The systems can handle any slide-based microarray study, from small one- or two-fluor applications to multiple-fluor high-throughput projects requiring automated sample handling and secure enterprise-wide data management and analysis. All GenePix scanners include one license of GenePix Pro Image Acquisition and Analysis Software, the benchmark tool for the acquisition and analysis of microarray images.

 

GenePix 4300/4400 Microarray Scanner

The GenePix® 4300A and GenePix® 4400A Scanners offer maximum imaging quality with optimal resolution in highly configurable platforms. Configurations include 5μm or 2.5μm per-pixel maximum scanning resolution, choices of up to four lasers for excitation, and sixteen emission-wavelength filters. These options allow the systems to detect a wide variety of fluorophores. Coupled with GenePix® Pro Microarray Image Analysis Software and Acuity® Microarray Informatics Software, the GenePix Systems provide powerful, flexible, and easy-to-use solutions for the acquisition and analysis of data from all types of arrays, including nucleic acids, proteins, tissues, and cells.

GenePix SL50 Automated Slide Loader

The GenePix® SL50 Slide Loader is a high-precision robotic operation that ensures careful transfer and safe positioning of your precious microarray slides. The entire system fits easily on a standard laboratory bench top and provides simple robotic or manual scanning of slides. The removable slide cassettes, each holding up to 25 slides, facilitate a convenient, versatile workflow. Simply fill your cassettes with slides, load the cassettes, configure your scan parameters, press start, and walk away.

GenePix® Microarray Scanner flexibility allows you to configure scanning and analysis of one slide or many, whether they are all alike or each is different. The slide loader accommodates low- and high-density; opaque, mirrored, or translucent; plastic or glass; commercial or homebrew slides.

 

GenePix® Pro Microarray Analysis Software

Designed to work with GenePix systems as a complete, integrated platform. The seamless communication between scanner and software ensures unmatched efficiency for data acquisition and analysis, as well as for real-time scanner performance monitoring.

 

Acuity® Microarray Informatics Software

Optional package, offering database storage, clustering algorithms, advanced statistics and visualizations.

Applications of GenePix Microarray Systems

  • Novel Applications

    The creativity and broad applicability of microarray-based research has no limits and is demonstrated by the vast variety of different microarray applications to conduct large-scale quantitative analysis. With the GenePix® Microarray Scanner System you have the most flexible solution and freedom in your research.

    • Tissue arrays
    • Quantum Dots
    • Carbohydrate Arrays
    • Chemical Compound Arrays
  • Epigenomics

    The gene carries the basic unit of information, but this information has an impact only once it is properly programmed by the epigenome. The DNA methylation pattern is cell type specific and correlates with chromatin structure. DNA microarrays are being utilized to identify methylation patterns, and the GenePix automation solution allows the researcher to identify these patterns faster.

    • DNA methylation arrays
    • Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) arrays
  • Proteomics

    Although the analysis of the full proteome has not yet been achieved, rapid progress is being made with microarrays in the field of proteomics. Proteomes exhibit large and dynamic complexity; the number for distinct proteins in mammals will certainly exceed the number of genes, requiring the right technology to be in place for the analysis. The flexibility of the GenePix system, and especially the high-throughput capabilities of the GenePix® SL50 Automated Slide Loader, provides adequate tools to researchers.

    • Protein arrays
    • Peptide arrays
    • Antibody arrays
    • ELISA arrays
    • Reverse Phase Arrays
  • Transcriptomics

    The use of high-density microarrays has impacted the measurement of transcript levels to study complex diseases. With the latest development of microarray technology, it is now possible to quantify transcript levels globally and to integrate such data with information relating to disease. Microarrays based transcriptomics enables mapping a critical genomic region for a disease using affected and unaffected individuals and then pinpointing the responsible gene by identifying differentially expressed genes in the critical region.

    • Gene expression arrays
    • RNA interference (RNAi) arrays
    • MicroRNA (miRNA) arrays
  • Genomics

    Directed at the genome sequence itself, microarrays have been used to identify novel genes, binding sites of transcription factors, changes in DNA copy number, and variations from a baseline sequence, such as in emerging strains of pathogens or complex mutations in disease-causing human genes.

    • SNP genotyping arrays
    • Arrayed comparative genomic hybridization (aCGH) arrays
