UVP offers a wide range of filter sizes and single or multiple UV wavelength transilluminators in a compact, benchtop size. UVP's patented 3UV™ Benchtop Transilluminator allows you to select between longwave, midrange and shortwave ultraviolet light exposure in one compact unit. 2UV models offer 302nm and 365nm UV in one model. 8-watt benchtop transilluminator models provide a low cost alternative to the High Performance UV Transilluminators. All Benchtop Transilluminator models are compact, lightweight units.
Easily view electrophoresis 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. A variety of filter area work surface sizes are available. Each transilluminator features a hinged UV blocking cover that is adjustable for access to the filter surface.
The UVP® FirstLight® UV Illuminator has a unique design which provides extremely uniform UV illumination, which is critical for accurate quantitative analysis. UVP has received the prestigious "Photonics Circle of Excellence" Award from Laurin Publishing for the FirstLight UV Illuminator. The award recognizes this instrument as a technically innovative product.
High sensitivity and dynamic range are consistent across the illumination surface. Software correction of uniformity is no longer required. Accurate gel to gel comparison. Uniformity now supplies < 5% coefficient of variance (CV) across the full filter area. When used with UVP’s bioImaging system and CCD camera, the configurations provides a low cost solution compared to laser scanning. Construction design includes an electronic ballast for increased stability and reduced power consumption. Includes a gel-cutter, focus target and UV blocking cover.
This high performance transilluminator provides high intensity and uniform UV illumination. The unique design of these transilluminators provices increased performance and efficiency. Product enhancements include a new electronic ballast and cutting-edge construction. Additional featured inclued zero light flicker, a wider UV intensity range with variable selection, fast lamp start up and a universal power supply. These transilluminators feature a stainless steel cover frame which provides an easy-to-clean surface and reduces cross contamination of samples. Uniform, brilliant back-lit fluorescence illumination is enhanced with UVP's unique background uniformity screen and UVG long-life filter. A uniformity screen is available on units with midrange or longwave UV.
The transilluminator's powerful cooling fan maintains a low filter surface temperature to prevent sample damage and maintains a constant UV intensity. A removable and adjustable protective UV blocking cover is also included with each transilluminator. 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. Improved gel visualization and gel documentation. Designed for use with high fluorescence and sensitivity on stained gels. Two-year warranty. CSA certified.
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.
The UVP® white light transilluminator supply back-lit white light. View film negatives and positives, autoradiographs, X-ray film, microtiter plates, and stained gels. Glass surface is permanently double safety-sealed into the base for durability. Scratch and chemical resistant work surface can be easily cleaned. Housing is finished with an Epoxy-powder paint for easy cleaning and maintenance. Uniform light diffusion. Two year warranty. ETL and ETLc approved.
The UVP® white light / UV transilluminator houses white light and UV working areas side by side for multiple applications. Design supplies increased performance and efficiency. Product enhancements include a new electronic ballast and cutting-edge construction. White light can be used for viewing coomassie blue stained gels, Silver stained protein gels, autoradiographs and microtiter plates. The UV side can be used for viewing Ethidium Bromide and other stained gels. Easily switch to the light sources with the rocker switch on the front of the unit. Each UV and white light surface area measures 20 x 20cm. Hinged, clear UV blocking cover included with transilluminator is height adjustable for access to the filter surface.
Maximize your transilluminator's capabilities by using a converter plate to convert the transilluminator's 302nm UV wavelength to different wavelengths for visualizing a variety of electrophoresis gels. Simply the specially designed plate on the transilluminator filter surface to produce the desired UV wavelength as specified.
These transilluminator converter plates feature scratch-resistant glass which is mounted in a metal housing for durability and a rubber seal which prevents the plate from sliding on the top of the transilluminator. Units also feature convenient side handles for easy handling and portability. Multiple standard plate sizes are available. Custom sizes available upon request.
Electrophoresis gel tools are helpful for researchers working with transilluminators and gel imaging systems. UVP offers a wide variety of unique gel tools for cutting, prepping and transferring gels from electrophoresis equipment to gel viewing equipment.
