Gel imaging at a touch

NuGenius is a new generation, low cost, integrated imaging system for DNA and protein analysis and gel documentation.

NuGenius is the ultimate in compact gel documentation workstations. Using a choice of UV, blue or white lighting options you can capture and edit images of fluorescent ethidium bromide, SYBR® Safe or GelGreenTM DNA gels and protein gels stained with Coomassie Blue at the workstation. You can even capture stain free gel images using a NuGenius+ which is specially optimised for this application.

For an entry level system, the NuGenius comes with a ground breaking 5 million pixel camera giving superb pixel resolution and unrivalled sensitivity. NuGenius offers a maximum viewing area of 20 x 24cm which is very large for such a small, compact unit.

NuGenius+ has been designed for stain free applications.
