Nyx Technik Photonyx Advance Gel Documentation System

  • 3 advanced models for imaging
  • Computer Controlled Systems
  • Built in self contained darkroon
  • Options for 3 sizes of transilluminators
Product Description

Photonyx offers three advanced models for all your imaging needs. Starting with the Ultra unit for Fluorescence only applications to the Chemi and Chemi Super 16 models that handle Fluorescence and Chemiluminescence applications. All units are computer controlled to maximize all the camera/lens lighting and darkroom functions. All three units are built in the same self-contained darkroom that include options for 3 sizes of transilluminators.


All are fitted with digital CCD cameras ranging from 1.2 – 5.5 mega pixel with 12 – 16 bit resolution and grayscales of 4096- 65536. The more advanced camera includes ultra peltier cooling.

Filter Selection

Photonyx Chemi comes standard with a manual sliding 3 position filter selector or it can be fitted with an optional computer controlled 7 position filter wheel.

Internal lighting

Here you have a range of options from transmitted to overhead lighting modules. In addition to UV you can also choose to have white light and blue light illumination.


The darkroom is fully microprocessor controlled so that functions such as camera settings lens control (including feedback data) filter selection and lighting can all be set up from a PC. Also user functions like camera exposure neutral fielding dynamic range and darkroom facilities (door lock UV shut off) are also selected from the desktop.

Photonyx Xplore – Image acquisition software

The image capture software was specifically developed to simplify the process of capturing gel images. Every advanced Photonyx system includes this software. It is a fully automatic package which controls camera integration exposure lens and capture options.
