Benchmark Accuris SmartBlue Blue Light Transilluminator


SmartBlue™ Blue Light Transilluminator  

New fluorophors have been developed to replace the traditional method of nucleic acid detection with toxic Ethidium bromide. They also eliminate the use of DNA damaging UV light, as they are visualized with blue light. The SmartBlue Transilluminator is the perfect partner for these new stains. It emits blue light at a wavelength of 465nm, perfect for excitation of most green fluorophors, including Accuris' SmartGlow™, as well as many protein stains. Exposing DNA to this wavelength does not cause damage, and results in a much higher down stream cloning efficiency as compared to even short UV light exposures. In addition, the visible blue light of the SmartBlue Transilluminator is not damaging to the skin, and less harmful than UV to the eyes*

*Due to the high intensity of the LED lights, it is recommended not to stare directly at the viewing surface without the amber cover in place.
