Ethidium Bromide is scary. Switch to a blue light dye to make your lab a safer place.
UV light destroys DNA, but blue light is safe for DNA. Your UV Transilluminator destroys almost 99% of your DNA sample. Get up to 9x more colonies with a blue transilluminator.
Uses the same patented technology as the $1,450 Life Technologies Safe Imager 2.0.
It’s easy for your lab to switch too, all your protocols stay the same as with Ethidium Bromide and UV light.
Built to be compatible with all blue light dyes, including SYBR safe and Gel Green.
No more UV DNA damage means that you will get tons more healthy colonies during Cloning. Our setup includes orange gel extraction glasses, you just wear the glasses while you cut out your bands.
Easy-Going 90-days “No-questions-asked” return policy. Free return shipping too!
Hundreds of worldwide customers love their Pearl Blue Transilluminator.
“Our core facility users have greatly enjoyed the new Pearl blue transilluminator. I have had numerous requests by users to contact you for purchase. They have been used for quick assessment by gel electrophoresis, but are especially useful for gel purification (no DNA damage by UV and out in the open). I highly recommend the new high-density LED transilluminator.”
Image gels up to 4 inches square (10 cm x 10 cm). This means you can image smaller gels but not giant gels. We found 90% of labs only use gels smaller than 4 inches, so the blue transilluminator is easy to store and doesn’t take up much bench space.
To cut out your DNA bands for gel purifications, just put on the glasses and your bands appear. Get right up to your bands as you cut them. No need for flashing on and off the UV transilluminator and trying to remember where to cut (agh!).
Pretty simple! Plug it in to turn the blue transilluminator on. The transilluminator includes all the parts you need to image your gels right out of the box, no other parts are needed.
No need to worry about extra shipping fees. Shipping is free in the USA and your blue transilluminator arrives 2 to 3 days after it ships. Internationally, our Express shipping gets you fast 3-5 day delivery for only $60.
