  • 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. Our new 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.
  • NuGenius is compatible with “safe dyes” such as SYBR® Gold, SYBR®Safe, GelGreenTM and many more as well as with visible light applications such as Coomassie blue and silver stain gels.
  • NuGenius+ has been designed for stain free applications. It has a modified camera enabling the user to expose for longer periods of 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.
