17 Base Pair DNA Model

Our best DNA model is pre-built with 17 base pairs on a rotatable base & makes a fine museum display, unique corporate gift or Big Bang Theory prop!

Why buy the real thing & not a cheap, inaccurate knock-off? Ours was designed in 2000 by Prof. Neil Straus of the University of Toronto & is as technically accurate as can be made with (mostly) off the shelf parts. Every model is checked for accuracy & the highly strained bonds, the "V-links" are glued for safe shipping anywhere in the world!

Click on the "Details" tab below to see all the details of why this is simply the best DNA model you can buy & a side by side comparison with our one of a kind 22 base pair RNA model.
