Blue Light Transi Iluminator

Key Features:

  1. Wavelength:
    • Blue Light Emission: The transilluminator emits blue light, typically in the range of 460 to 500 nanometers. This wavelength is suitable for excitation of various fluorescent dyes commonly used in molecular biology.
  2. Fluorescent Imaging:
    • Excitation of Fluorophores: Blue light is used to excite fluorophores (fluorescent molecules) present in nucleic acids, proteins, or other biomolecules, allowing their visualization.
  3. Gel Documentation:
    • DNA and Protein Gel Imaging: The transilluminator is often used in combination with a gel documentation system for capturing images of DNA or protein gels after electrophoresis.
  4. Gel Size Compatibility:
    • Different Sizes: Blue Light Transilluminators come in various sizes to accommodate different gel sizes, from mini-gels to larger agarose gels.
  5. UV Protection:
    • UV Blocking: Many transilluminators include UV-blocking filters to protect the user from harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation emitted by the excitation light source.
  6. Uniform Illumination:
    • Even Light Distribution: The transilluminator is designed to provide uniform and even illumination across the gel surface for accurate imaging.
  7. Adjustable Intensity:
    • Intensity Control: Some models have adjustable intensity settings, allowing users to control the brightness of the excitation light.
  8. Safety Features:
    • Built-in Safety Features: Certain transilluminators include safety features to prevent accidental exposure to UV or blue light.
  9. Compact Design:
    • Benchtop Instrument: Blue Light Transilluminators are typically compact and designed to fit on laboratory benches.
  10. Compatibility with Imaging Systems:
    • Integration with Cameras: Many transilluminators can be integrated with gel documentation systems or cameras for capturing and saving gel images.
  11. Multiple Excitation Sources:
    • Multiple LED Sources: Some advanced models use LEDs as the light source, providing a stable and long-lasting excitation light with specific wavelengths.
  12. Application-Specific Models:
    • DNA Staining: Some transilluminators are specifically optimized for DNA staining applications, providing enhanced sensitivity for DNA visualization.
  13. Compliance with Standards:
    • CE Marked: Blue Light Transilluminators are manufactured to comply with relevant safety and quality standards, often indicated by a CE mark.
