GeneGnome XRQ

The new GeneGnomeXRQ  is dedicated to chemiluminescence imaging. This system is built for high performance and automation and now features a next generation high quantum efficiency Syngene CCD camera for even greater sensitivity. A very simple set-up process means a single ‘click’ will automatically capture a quality image of any Western blot

Product Description

Western blot imaging has never been so easy than with the GeneGnome XRQ. The system automatically selects the right imaging conditions for any blot irrespective of the chemiluminescent reagents being used. All chemiluminescence applications can easily be handled by the GeneGnome XRQ and can produce superb images even from the faintest of signals.

The compact instrument sits on any laboratory bench taking up very little space. The GeneGnome XRQ requires an external PC for use.

The system comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.

    • Optimised – for imaging chemiluminescence Western blots

GeneGnome XRQ is configured for maximum sensitivity to ensure even the faintest band on a blot can be captured.

    • Sensitive cooled camera

The high quantum efficiency cooled CCD camera is very sensitive to low level light emissions from a blot. The peltier cooled camera has exceptional ‘signal to noise’ performance resulting in virtually undetectable background noise. The short ‘camera to sample’ distance further enhances the ability to work with chemiluminescence samples and reagents. When compared to film, the GeneGnome XRQ has more than double the dynamic range. This allows for extremely accurate quantification.

    • Small footprint

The GeneGnome XRQ has a very small footprint and takes up minimal bench space. The automatic slide-out drawer allows easy sample handling. The fixed aperture and focus of the lens results in a very simple set-up procedure making image capture as simple as a click of a mouse button.


For many years, GeneGnome has been one of Syngene’s unique and very popular systems. We have sold hundreds worldwide and have a strong customer following for this product. GeneGnome has now been updated to include a much higher resolution camera.

As always, the GeneGnome is a fully automated system with a small footprint and is optimised for highly sensitive imaging of chemiluminescence blots and plates. Built-in epi white LEDs are included so that coloured markers can be imaged. An external PC is required.

The GeneGnome XRQ now features one of our new generation high QE camera which have exceptional sensitivity for chemiluminescence work.

Images of up to 16m pixels can be generated for publication purposes while the standard 4m pixel output images offer superb quality for all your chemiluminescent blots and plates. Please remember that the maximum blot size in a GeneGnome is 11 x 8cm. If you have larger blots please look at our G:BOX series.

The camera is cooled and has very low noise so imaging chemiluminescent samples is easy. Using GeneSys makes capturing any sample a simple, automatic process. It is genuinely a one-button process with capture times automatically calculated. Exposure times of many hours are possible and always result in clean crisp images.
