NuGenius+ gel imaging systemFrederick, MD: Syngene, a world-leading manufacturer of image analysis solutions, is delighted to introduce its NuGenius+ gel imaging system. This cost-effective system is configured with powerful new software for generating accurate, high quality images of stain-free protein gels, in addition to DNA agarose and SDS-PAGE gels, saving scientists valuable time with their research.

Featuring a compact darkroom, large UV transilluminator and UV filter, the NuGenius+ is touch screen controlled by image capture software. 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. Utilizing this cost-effective system for imaging stain-free gels will save researchers hours of staining preparation time.

Complete with a high-resolution 5-million-pixel camera and integrated Raspberry Pi processor, the NuGenius+ can be fitted with Syngene’s White Light Converter Screen or the new UV-Blue Light Converter Screen. These allow the NuGenius+ to inexpensively become a versatile imaging powerhouse capable of detecting a range of visual and fluorescent dyes such as Coomassie Blue, GelGreen™ SYBR® Safe, SYBR® Gold, and SYPRO® Ruby for precisely visualizing protein and DNA on gels.
