GenePix 4300 and 4400 Microarray Scanner, Molecular Devices
The GenePix® 4300A and GenePix® 4400A Scanners from Molecular Devices offer maximum imaging quality with optimal resolution in highly configurable platforms.
- High-resolution for high-density microarrays
- Full flexibility in choosing dyes
- Specified and tested for field uniformity
- Less noise in your data
- Less breakable components
- Designed for high-duty cycle usage
Configurations include 5μm or 2.5μm per-pixel maximum scanning resolution, choices of up to four lasers for excitation, and sixteen emission-wavelength filters
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 you have the option to match the scanner resolution as your microarray research requirements advance. 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 allow you to select your dyes from a broad variety of fluorophores for your assay (CyTM3 and CyTM5 dyes, Fluorescein, GFP, Texas Red, Alexa Fluor® dyes, or quantum dots. With outstanding positional performance and uniformity, the GenePix® 4300 and 4400 Microarray Scanners allow you 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. Get unparalleled signal-to-noise (SNR) performance. GenePix® Microarray Scanners uses only the best components, like low-noise digitizer and photomultiplier tube (PMT), highest quality optical filters and sensors to reduce scattered light. Together these improvements reduce the noise to a minimum and increase the sensitivity.
Unparalleled sensitivity also enables the use of lower laser power settings, which significantly reduces any perceived degradation of your dyes. Your microarray is safe in our scanner. With the newly designed six-point-slide holder, we exclusively rely on high-precision machining to eliminate fallible components as commonly used in dynamic autofocus systems. Improved high duty-cycle motors ensure maximum translation and focus motor lifetime. The new patent pending voice coil was designed to minimize vibration and optimize heat dissipation. The GenePix 4400A Microarray Scanner is capable of scanning at a user-defined optical pixel resolution between 2.5 and 100 micron per pixel, allowing you to scan the highest-density microarrays on the market.
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.
