Manual gel documentation system

The economical InGenius3 gel imaging and analysis system is suitable for standard fluorescence applications. InGenius3 features a 3 million pixel camera.

Using a compact, InGenuis3 gel documentation system you’re in control. You can image your choice of dyes and stains by choosing UV, blue or white lighting options. The system’s GeneSys software selects the right lighting and filters for you, making it easy to image fluorescent ethidium bromide or SYBR® Safe DNA gels and protein gels stained with Coomassie Blue or silver.

For an economical system, the InGenius3 offers a 3m pixel camera and can produce images with 16 bit image depth. A manual zoom lens and manual filter drawer (includes a UV filter) completes the package.

The system is controlled by GeneSys application driven image capture software and comes complete with unlimited copies of GeneTools analysis software.
