Quantify the largest dynamic range of dsDNA, with space-saving, intuitive DeNovix FX Series Spectrophotometers and Fluorometers.

DeNovix FX Series instruments combine Fluorescence and 1ul UV-Vis in stand-alone units for quantification of the widest dynamic range of biomolecules.  DeNovix introduces three new dsDNA assays that enable the full sensitivity of the instrument, including quantification as low as 0.5 pg/ul dsDNA. These simple to use, two-point standard assays are pre-programmed into every DeNovix FX instrument and are highly selective for dsDNA even in samples containing RNA or protein.

The following special bundle is available for orders placed before 31st December 2015:
10% Discount on any DeNovix FX Series Instrument.
Free DeNovix dsDNA Broad Range Assay Kit (1000 ct.)
Free DeNovix dsDNA High Sensitivity Assay Kit (1000 ct.)
Free DeNovix dsDNA Ultra High Sensitivity Assay Kit (50 ct.)

Qualifying products include the QFX Fluorometer, DS-11FX and DS-11FX+ Spectrophotometer/Fluorometer, or the FX Fluorometer Module (USB Accessory for existing DS-11 /DS-11+ customers)


gelred gtshomepage   gelredgtshomepage6

GelRed™ is a next-generation fluorescent nucleic acid gel stain designed to replace the highly toxic ethidium bromide (EtBr).  Developed by scientists at Biotium,  GelRed™ is superior to EtBr and other EtBr alternatives by having a combination of low toxicity, high sensitivity and exceptional stability. It is a direct replacement for ETBr due to its almost identical spectrum.


GelRed™ is on special with its Australian distributor, Gene Target Solutions, for a limited time.
1-4 tubes: $135 ea
5+ tubes: $125 ea

AATI Fragment Analyzer™ – Introducing one powerful instrument to cover the full spectrum of DNA, gDNA and RNA quality control.

Fragment Analyzer™ does everything from high-resolution analysis to fast DNA separations, across the widest separation range.



MIT Compares the Advanced Analytical Fragment Analyzer™ to the BioAnalyzer 2100 and finds the Fragment Analyzer to be faster, more cost effective and more efficient with a failure rate of less than 1% compared to 15-30% for the BioAnalyzer 2100.  Click here for information on their findings.


Fragment Analyzer™ is used and recommended by Illumina™ as an automated system for the quantification and qualification of NGS libraries, gDNA and RNA.   Illumina elaborates on its website, mentioning Fragment Analyzer as one of the answers to “laborious and time-consuming” constraints in the lab, while making it “easier for our customers” to automate fragmentation and size selection.



kurabo logoIntroducing Kurabo’s QuickGene range of compact personal extraction systems, for rapid isolation of high yield, high purity DNA or RNA from a variety of samples including whole blood, tissue, cells, plants and viruses.

QG-Mini80 new

The QuickGene is affordable, lightweight, simple, rapid & semi automated.  Its ultra thin membrane reduces the chance of contamination and enables the processing of samples at mild low pressure conditions, without the use of a centrifuge or vacuum manifold.

prepGEM  DNA extraction kits

prepGEM has been formulated for high-throughput DNA extraction from animal tissue samples. The prepGEM kits contain reagents that have been optimized for downstream, PCR-based applications including STR’s, SNiPs, DNA sequencing, RFLP analysis etc.

The extracted DNA can be used directly with analytical platforms based on PCR, or quantitative PCR. Unlike most DNA preparation methods that require multiple steps and special handling, ZyGEM’s DNA extraction technology uses a single tube and a simple two-step temperature cycle to prepare DNA for analysis, greatly reducing sample preparation time and the risk of sample contamination.

All prepGEM kits are formulated for animal testing, biosecurity and R&D applications.
