steps:
1.
Connect the monitor, keyboard and mouse to the appropriate ports of the PC.
2.
Connect the G:BOX camera’s USB cable to a USB port on the PC.
3.
Locate the serial cable. Plug one end of the cable into the USB-to-serial adapter,
and then plug the adapter into a USB port on the PC. The other end of the serial
cable should be plugged into the port labelled “Darkroom” on the rear of the
Syngene system.

Connect the electrical power leads to the PC and monitor and then power-on the PC.
Your Syngene system is now setup and ready to use. You can launch the GeneSys and
GeneTools software via the Desktop shortcuts.
Note: You should skip the remaining instructions in this guide as they do not apply to your setup.
 PC Setup (Your Own PC)
If you did not purchase a pre-configured PC from Syngene then please perform the
following steps to setup your PC:
Installing GeneSys software & the camera calibration
1.
Plug the Syngene branded flash drive into your PC.
2.
Navigate into the “GeneSys” folder on the flash drive and run the “setup” file.
Follow the on-screen instructions and only proceed onto the next step when you
have successfully finished the GeneSys installation.
3.
Navigate into the “Calibration” folder on the flash drive and run the “Install” file.
Follow the on-screen instructions.

You should have already plugged a USB cable into the darkroom camera. Take the
other end of that USB cable and plug it into your PC. The camera drivers should be
automatically loaded.
5.
Locate the serial cable. Plug one end of the cable into the USB-to-serial adapter
and then plug the adapter into a USB port on your PC. The other end of the serial
cable should be plugged into the port labelled “Darkroom” on the rear of the
Syngene system.
Installing GeneTools software

Plug the Syngene branded flash drive into the PC you wish to install GeneTools on.
Navigate into the “GeneTools” folder on the flash drive and run the
