UVP Visi-Blue Transilluminators


UV-safe units convert 365nm UV to 460-470nm blue light for use with various stains including GFP stains.  Easily view gels under 365nm longwave UV for extended periods of time avoiding photonicking damage. Researchers can use the 302nm midrange to increase the fluorescence for photodocumentation. Shortwave 254nm UV is used to irradiate samples.  The transilluminator can be used for Gel Electrophoresis, DNA Fluorescence, or Protein Fluorescence.
