Blue Light Transilluminator
Two position filter cover
The SmartBlue transilluminator requires no special shielding, however, the light does need to be filtered for visualization of the dyes. The amber cover, which rests above the viewing surface and gel, filters out the blue light, allowing the bands to be seen clearly. The cover can be placed at a 60º angle to provide easy
access to the gel for band excision. For documentation, the filter cover is easily removed completely.
UI Technology: bright and clear images
Engineered diffusers and filters provide an extremely evenly lit viewing surface. Even in ambient light, bands of DNA can clearly be seen in gels. Images obtained using the SmartBlue Transilluminator are brighter and more balanced than those obtained using epi-illiminators which light from the sides.
Reliable, durable and long lasting
An array of super bright LEDs with a long, 30,000 hour service life provide the light source for the SmartBlue Transilluminator. Unlike those in a UV Transilluminator, the filters in the SmartBlue will not solarize and degrade in performance over time. Gel bands can be excised directly on the scratch resistant, glass viewing surface. To save energy, the power switch includes an automatic 5 minute shutoff. The SmartBlue Transilluminator is covered by a 2 year warranty.
