New transillumination technology is recommended for viewing a wide range of fluorescent stained gels which emit light at 460-470nm. Imaging instrument, which includes transilluminators and converter plates, does not produce UV light and therefore eliminates UV exposure and minimizes damage to samples. The technology is UV-safe, allowing researchers to perform experiments without concern about harmful UV effects. The instruments’ specially designed filter glass and lighting combination enable bright gel illumination and excitation. The light reduces background noise and increases image signal, creating a higher image contrast for enhanced visualization and analysis. An amber cover absorbs the blue excitation and provides a clear view of the stained gel’s brilliant fluorescence.
