UltraBright-LED transilluminatorUltraBright-LED transilluminator
Blue light transilluminators are often used as an alternative to a UV transilluminator when users wish to use 'safe dyes' instead of Ethidium Bromide. A blue light transilluminator is a 'safe' light source, in that the user is not exposed to harmful UV radiation and samples are free from photonicking. The UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used instead of the UV transilluminator in all Syngene G:BOX systems.

UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used with gels up to 20 x 16cm for use in the G:BOX series. This model uses side mounted 470nm LED arrays for illumination.
Syngene offers a range of UV transilluminators suitable for all your imaging needs.

The Epi UV module can be fitted to any G:BOX Chemi darkroom (those produced after July 2010). The module fits above the standard LED white light module which is standard on all G:BOX Chemi systems. The Epi UV module can have either a 254nm, 365nm or 302nm tube. Either one or two modules can be fitted to each darkroom.
The filter wheel takes the 72mm range of filters.

For a more versatile G:BOX Chemi system, LED light modules for red, green and blue light can be fitted to an optional lighting gantry.

With this new lighting system the user can select which wavelength of light they require for any specific application. The lighting modules are single wavelength and contain LEDs and a dedicated filter. Each module is 'plug and play'. Once plugged into the gantry the module is electronically registered by the G:BOX Chemi which recognises the wavelength and type of filter being used.

Up to 4 modules can be plugged into each side of the darkroom. It is possible to fit identical modules to increase intensity or to use a number of modules with different wavelengths. Modules are normally fitted in matched pairs, one either side.

There are 8 different LED modules to choose from:

Please refer to the Syngene database for the comprehensive list of dyes which can be used with the LED light modules.
Any printer with appropriate Windows drivers can be attached to the G:BOX Chemi. We recommend an A6 thermal printer such as Sony or Mitsubishi. These USB printers will 'plug and play' with the G:BOX Chemi and require minimal set up. They will print hard copies of images in under 5 seconds on long life glossy thermal paper to give photographic quality images.
IQ/OQ/PQ proceduresIQ/OQ/PQ procedures
More and more laboratories require IQ/OQ/PQ verification these days. Syngene's IQ/OQ/PQ procedures take the user through each step in the verification of a Syngene system in meeting the demands of the laboratory, regulatory compliances and standard operational procedures (SOP). These simple procedures allow the user to verify that a system meets defined installation, quality and performance specifications.
Installation Qualification (IQ)
This verifies that when a system is unpacked it conforms with all purchasing, shipping and unpacking documents. Once this procedure has been followed the system is then ready for the operational check process.

Operational Qualification (OQ)
This procedure establishes if the system meets all the operation and functionality specifications. An operational test is also included at this stage.

Performance Qualification (PQ)
A performance check will establish if the system meets the specification for the nature of the purpose it was intended for. This is verified by using a simple target to establish if the system can meet performance criteria.

Each set of IQ/OQ/PQ documents contains a complete set of procedures and checklists for following the verification steps. Included with each 'pack' is a simple calibration device (target image) so that the performance of the system can be checked against the PQ requirements. Each set of documents is unique to a particular system and has to be ordered with the system itself. The document pack has full instructions for use and implementation.

Who does this?
Customer - typically a customer can perform these tests by themselves. Their own internal QC department will be familiar with these processes.

Syngene or its distributors
Trained Syngene personnel or trained distributors can also perform the IQ/OQ/PQ procedures, normally at a nominal charge.
