Singapore's SMART Center Installs Syngene's 2D Gel Analysis Platform

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Syngene said today that it has installed a Dyversity 6 2D gel imaging system at the Singapore Massachusetts Institute of Technology Alliance for Research and Technology, or SMART, Center.
 
Syngene said that its exclusive distributor in Singapore, Insta BioAnalytik Pte, installed the system.
 
The system includes a 16-bit, 6 megapixel CCD-based camera and can generate 2D protein gel images up to 10 times faster than a conventional laser-based scanner, Syngene said in a statement.
 
The SMART Center’s infectious diseases interdisciplinary research group will use the system to automate 1D and 2D gel imaging in research focusing on respiratory syncytial virus, influenza, tuberculosis, and malaria.
