SmartDoc Gel Imaging with UV or Blue Light Illuminator

UV Blocking Mat
The SmartDoc Gel #E5000-SD can be used with a UV or blue light transilluminator or ordered model #E5000-SDB equipped with blue light transilluminator.

How UV light and Ethidium Bromide can Damage Lab Samples during Gel Imaging

Problem: Laboratories have traditionally used Ethidium Bromide (EtBr), a known carcinogen and mutagen, to stain DNA agarose gels. EtBr also uses UV to excite stained gels and UV light has been known to cause DNA lesions, which are associated with an increased incidence of cancer. Lab operators exposed to UV through the use of EtBr increase the risk of cancer. 

Solutions: The SmartDoc Gel Imaging System with blue light illumination (E5000-SDB) can safeguard your laboratory's personnel by eliminating the need for EtBr and UV light.

The E5000-SDB uses safe blue light and non-toxic green dyes for gel imaging purposes.
