Imaging DNA and protein gels

For analysing DNA and RNA routinely in your lab, having a great gel doc (gel documentation) system is critical.  DNA/RNA stained with ethidium bromide is often visualised using UV. When you need to re-use that DNA, for example, you can choose safer dyes such as SYBR® Safe, SYBR® Gold, SYBR® and GelGreen® which can be imaged with blue light.

If you’re looking for proteins on gels, you can easily visualise bands stained with Coomassie blue or silver stain.

By choosing Syngene’s InGenius3, NuGenius, NuGenius+ or G:BOX F3 imagers you can do all this and more. With application-driven touch screen software, slide-out UV and blue transilluminators, as well as white light options, you’ll easily have accurate fluorescent and visible gel images in seconds.

When you want to save time with gel staining, you can use stain-free technology so that your proteins fluoresce directly in the gel. After exposing your gel to UV, use a NuGenius+ – its super sensitive camera makes imaging your stain-free gels quick and easy.

You can also use a G:BOX Chemi XRQ, G:BOX mini 6, G:BOX mini 9, G:BOX Chemi XX6 and G:BOX Chemi XX9 for all these gel doc applications.
