Delivering a typical peak 312nm intensity of 9,000mW/cm2 at the filter surface, the Slimline Series UV transilluminator measures only 111/2 x 14 x 21/4 inches (29.2 x 35.6 x 5.7 cm). Suitable for visualization and photodocumentation of mini gels, the diffusing screen ensures superior light distribution and eliminates confusing light striations caused by the contours of the tubes. The filter glass inhibits solarization and extending filter life while providing a longer life span. The unit has a hinged UV-blocking cover, which protects users from UV radiation and ensures minimal photobleaching, photonicking and photodimerization, because it eliminates transmission of harmful 254nm radiation. Samples last much longer, so analysis is much faster and easier.
