The Axon 4100 has high-resolution acquisition and automated PMT balanced, dynamic laser power monitoring, increased fluorophore flexibility with 8-position filter wheel, non-confocal optical design, and integrated hardware and software. It allows for optimization of image resolution and file size for each experiment by acquiring data at user-selectable resolutions between 5-100 microns. The laser power in scanner is monitored for each pixel during scanning to ensure constant signal output. Up to six additional filters can be installed, providing additional filters can be installed, providing flexibility to explore alternative dyes. The non-confocal optics of the scanner are specifically designed for microarray imaging.
The Axon 4100 has the following features:
The Axon 4100 had high-resolution acquisition, automated PMT balancing, dynamic laser power monitoring, increased fluorophore flexibility with 8-position filter wheel, non-confocal optical design, and integrates hardware and software. The instrument is compact, affordable, and easy-to-use with superior imaging accuracy.
The Axon 4100 had the following features:
Flexibility to Explore Alternative Dyes:
A variety of fluorophores can be used with the GenePix 4100A Microarray Scanner as its optical design incorporates up to six different user-selected emission filters.
Use the included set of calibration slides on a regular basis to calibrate your microarray scanner for repeatable photomultiplier tube (PMT) performance over long periods of time. In addition, Laser power is dynamically monitored during scanning to ensure constant signal output, and the Hardware Diagnostics Report keeps a record of ongoing scanner performance assessments. With these features, you can immediately identify and correct significant changes.
Optimize Settings On-The-Fly:
GenePix Pro automatically graphs a Histogram of the distribution of pixel intensities. The image and the Histogram are updated dynamically as scanning proceeds; both can be used to optimize scanner settings while you scan.
Adjust the Resolution to Your Application:
Use the 40-micron Preview Scan to locate the array and optimize hardware settings, and the Data Scan for accurate quantification. The GenePix 4100A Microarray Scanner offers selectable resolution between 5 and 100 microns, just about right for your samples.
The detection system employs a low-noise, high-sensitivity PMT to convert photons into an electrical signal, which is then digitized using world-leading ultra-low-noise digitizer technology. Adjust the PMT gain and average multiple line scans, to achieve even greater signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) on faint samples.
Pro Acquisition and Analysis Software automatically reads barcodes from Preview Scans, Data Scans, and saved images, and are exported with extracted data.
Fully Re-furbished, calibration/alignment to factory standard.
