SmartDoc 2.0 Helps Ensure Lab Safety with Blue Light and Non-Toxic Dyes

10 kb DNA ladder, stained with a green dye and imaged with 535nm filter

Ethidium Bromide (EtBr) a known carcinogen and mutagen has traditionally been used by laboratories in conjunction with UV light for staining DNA agarose gels. Exposure to UV light has been demonstrated to cause DNA lesions, which are associated with an increased incidence of cancer. 

The SmartDoc 2.0 Gel Imaging System with blue light illumination (E5001-SDB) protects lab personnel by eliminating the need for EtBr and UV light. The E5001-SDB uses safe blue light and non-toxic green dyes for gel imaging purposes.
