The GENi gel documentation system generates true 16-bit, publication-quality images of fluorescent and colored DNA and protein gels. The system is fitted with a fully motorized camera and zoom lens, providing 2 megapixel resolution as well as a six-position motorized filter wheel for hands-off imaging. GENi features a compact darkroom and built-in computer with a large touch screen. The darkroom contains a slide-out transilluminator and fold-down white light table for DNA and protein gel applications. To obtain data, researchers can save images to a USB memory stick using the USB port located on the front of the GENi and transfer the file to a lab computer.
