Additional Information

The Labnet Enduro GDS Gel Documentation System is a state-of-the-art imaging system providing an incredible combination of performance, value and ease of use. It is a perfect fit with the rapidly expanding Labnet Enduro Electrophoresis and Molecular Biology product line.

The Enduro GDS provides exceptional resolution with a 5MP scientific camera, a built-in UV transilluminator with a safety shut-off switch, and viewing port which are unique in this price range. The large field of view (20 x 24 cm.) allows for large gel imaging, or the imaging of many gels at once. The system was designed to always be in focus, which  means no manual manipulation of the lens is required, ever.

Application flexibility is achieved through the UV transilluminators, the optional white light conversion screen, and optional blue conversion screen. The standard filter on the Enduro GDS is compatible with ethidium bromide , SYBR Safe, gel red and SYBR Green to name a few. The optional Clear Gel Tray provides a great tool to make gel handling easier. The tapered end allows safe transfer of gel reducing risk of damaging gel in transport. The GDS is ready to use right out of the box. Just connect to a PC and run.

The Enduro GDS was designed to save images as either .jpg files for publication or .tiff files for quantitative analysis. Labnet offers TotalLab 1D software in either single, multiple user or network licenses. TotalLab 1D provides for the rapid analysis of images and can get you results in a single click of the mouse. The user has the ability to review each stage of the workflow analysis and intervene or edit if required. Combining high levels of automation with final user review allows rapid and accurate quantitative analysis. The user then has full control of the visualisation tools and data display – outputting only those data fields that are of importance as well as the images of choice. Reports can easily be generated including quantitative data, gel image and band profile. This is a full featured analytical software package that is the result of decades of software refinement.
