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

- 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 spots. 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® 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 of TGX Stain-Free™ FastCast™ acrylamide gels, Mini-PROTEAN® and Criterion™ TGX Stain-Free™ precast gels automatically.
These are just some of the applications that can be used with a NuGenius. The Syngene Applications Department is always ready to discuss your particular application needs and how they can be imaged using NuGenius. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
NuGenius uses a slimline transilluminator. These transilluminators are available in voltages for 230V 50Hz, 230V 60Hz (-E60), 115V 60Hz (-A), 115V 60Hz (-ACA) and 100V 50/60Hz (-J). Available wavelengths are short wave (254nm, 2020S or 2024S), medium wave (302nm, 2020M or 2024M), long wave (365nm, 2020L or 2024L).
Blue light converter screen
This comes in size 21 x 26 cm and is used to change harmful UV into blue light. It is made of scratch resistant plastic and is easy to retrofit onto a UV transilluminator
Visible light converter screen
This come in size 23.5cm x 30cm and is used to change UV light into visible light, ideal for imaging Coomassie Blue and Silver Stained gels.
A 58mm short pass filter is available.
Any printer with appropriate Windows drivers can be attached to the NuGenius. We recommend a thermal A6 printer such as Mitsubishi. These USB printers will ‘plug and play’ with the NuGenius and require minimal setup. They will print hard copies of images in under 5 seconds on long life glossy thermal paper to give photographic quality images.
Available as Matt or Glossy.
Short wave 8W, 254nm, Medium wave 8W, 302nm, Long wave 8W 365nm available.
