Buy the Indigo® 17 base pair DNA double helix model assembled and ready for use in teaching, museum display or as a gift. Designed in 2000, there are over 400 around the world in some of the most prestigious universities, labs and companies.

It features 1.5 turns with technically accurate major/minor grooves in a ratio of ~1.9:1, close to the actual ratio of 1.8:1. Our optional alpha helix molecular model fits the major groove easily but shows steric inference when placed in the minor groove. Interested in methylation? We can provide separate parts for you.

Schools pay academic price of $795US.
