GENOGATE reader(A dedicated detection machine for GENOGATE chips)

  • High-resolution reading of 450,000 pixels makes high accuracy of measurements possible.
  • It is designed in such way that driving parts are minimized as much as possible, resulting in fewer cases of machine trouble.
  • At the time of laser radiation, the interlocking mechanism ensures high level of safety.
  • Compact design with a particular emphasis on the operational environment.

Since it is a fluorescence detection machine dedicated for the GENOGATE chip, the GENOGATE reader automatically recognizes the DNA chip spots by its unique algorithm and image processing, and can read one shot in as little time as approximately 10 seconds, achieving top-of-the-class detection speed. In addition, cooled CCD camera enables measurement with very low noise. Thanks to its compact design, you can utilize the testing space effectively. The results of the analysis will be saved as a CSV file that allows you to use dedicated data management software to manage them in a unified manner. Since the GENOGATE reader is designed in such a way that all operations are performed on the control software, there are no cumbersome operations of the main body of the machine.

GENOGATE reader control software
The control software can analyzes the chip set in the main body of the detection machine. All the operations of the main detection machine can be done by this software. This software establishes inspector authorization and manager authorization as part of the user management functions to ensure strict information control over the analytical data. The detected data are also automatically sorted as analytical data and saved in CSV file format. The process from detection to analysis can be done in as little time as a few minutes.

GENOGATE reader data management software
By using the data management software, you can uniformly manage every file created at the time of analysis as sample-by-sample information database. You can manage/register them easily by dragging the file to the designated area on respective registration screen. In addition, any management information (sampling information, sample image, etc) prepared by the user side can be registered in a similar manner. In this way, the fungal test situations of the targeted management area can be handled as a database allowing you to utilize it for the purpose of prevention measures, hygiene management, and so on.
