axon 4000B scanner


Molecular Devices Axon4000B Scanner

The Molecular Devices Axon4000B scanner features high speed simultaneous dual-channel scanning that elimates the post-capture image registration, avoids pixel shifting and increases acquistition speed (~10minute scan for two wavelengths at 5um resolution). 

The Axon4000B is used in conjuction with GenePix® Pro 6.1 software for the analysis and visualization of each scanned microarray.  The Axon4000B is available for analysis of custom designed and commercially available high-density microarrays.

Training is available for this instrument; if interested please contact the GEC.  Typically, the training takes about 0.5 - 1 hour and incurs the cost of our labor, $95/hr. The instrument currently has a fee for use of $13.00 per slide. The price listed here is for UW-Researchers only.
