Complete gel documentation workstation

  • NuGenius is a new generation, low cost, integrated system for DNA and protein analysis and gel documentation. The NuGenius features an integrated 7 inch touch screen and a built-in processor running our new dedicated NuGenius software for image capture and editing.
  • A new ground breaking 5 million pixel CCD camera gives exquisite pixel resolution and unrivalled sensitivity in its class. NuGenius uses an f1.2 motor driven zoom lens to enable perfect imaging of any gel or blot size. The maximum viewing area is 20 x 24cm which is very large for such a small, compact unit.
  • Internal lighting includes a UV transilluminator option for working with DNA gels. UV-blue light converter screen allows imaging of all Safe dyes. A visible light converter option can quickly extend its use for working with visible gels and blots. Overhead LED white lighting is included as standard for easy sample positioning and focusing.
  • Using a choice of UV, blue or white lighting options you can capture and edit images of fluorescent ethidium bromide, “safe dyes” such as SYBR® Gold, SYBR®Safe, GelGreenTM DNA gels and protein gels stained with Coomassie Blue,  silver stain at the workstation. You can even capture stain-free gel images using a NuGenius+ which is specially optimised for this application.
  • NuGenius+ has been designed for stain free applications. It has a modified camera enabling the user to expose for longer periods of time. NuGenius+ can be automatically set up in seconds to capture great images of TGX Stain-Free™ FastCast™ acrylamide gels, Mini-PROTEAN® and Criterion™ TGX Stain-Free™ precast gels. Utilising this cost-effective system for imaging stain-free gels will save researchers hours of staining preparation time.
  • Images are saved direct to USB memory stick for easy transfer to a PC or laptop.
  • Quickly generate quantitative data with GeneTools analysis software.  4 copies are included as standard.

  • DNA – with a NuGenius you can use the UV transilluminator to capture images of DNA gels stained with Ethidium Bromide.
  • AutoRads – the NuGenius 5mp resolution camera is ideal for capturing images requiring high detail. This is especially true when looking for separation between bands and sports. Capturing high quality images of Autorads is one of the strengths of the NuGenius.
  • Visible light – with the visible light converter, NuGenius can be used to view gels which have been stained with, eg, silver stain and Coomassie blue. You can also view tissues, slides and films.
  • Blue light – a blue light conversion screen is available for applications requiring blue light excitation, eg, “Safe dyes” such as GFP, SYBR(R) Green, SYBR Gold, SYBR Safe, SYPRO Ruby, Safe View and Flamingo.
  • Stain free (with NuGenius+) – stain free technology removes extra steps and long delays from staining with dyes such as Coomassie blue. NuGenius+ is capable of capturing stain free images automatically.
