SmartBlue Blue Light Transilluminator
Scratch resistant 6.6" x 4.75" viewing surface.
A safer alternative to UV light gel imaging systems, the blue light emitted by the SmartBlue will not damage nucleic acid or DNA samples and it protects operator from UV light damage. The emission of blue light at a wavelength of 465 nm is ideal for new protein stains and green fluorophores such as the SmartGlow. When compared to traditional UV light systems, the SmartBlue improves downstream cloning efficiency.
