A new ground breaking 5.0 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 24 cm 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 Green Stain™, SYBR® Gold, SYBR® Safe, GelGreen™ 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.

  • DNA
    With a NuGenius you can use the UV transilluminator to capture images of DNA gels stained with Ethidium Bromide.
  • AutoRads
    The NuGenius 5.0 million pixel 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 Green Stain™, GFP, SYBR® 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.

These are just some of the applications that can be used with a NuGenius. We are obviously ready to discuss your particular application needs and how they can be imaged using NuGenius.
