UVP® Visi-Blue™ UV Transilluminator
The UVP® Visi-Blue™ transilluminator is UV safe and converts 365nm UV to (460 to 470nm) blue light for use with various stains including GFP stains, SYBR green and SYPRO orange. These transilluminators are designed for use with GFP stains. As compared to UV, the blue light will transmit through almost any transparent (Plastic, Glass, etc.) laboratory equipment. This is essential when monitoring and detecting DNA migration and protein expression in real time. Orange cover (included) blocks blue light transmission and allows visualization of media above 500nm.
Variable intensity settings (high/medium/low) - high setting allows for UV excitation of fluorophores on gels for routine photography. Medium is excellent for viewing and quick single-band excision. Low setting allows for positioning and preparation of gels, excising multiple bands, and focusing for photography.
