Blue light transilluminators are often used as an alternative to UV transilluminators when users wish to use safe dyes' instead of Ethidium Bromide. A blue light transilluminator is a safe' light source, in that the user is not exposed to harmful UV radiation and samples are free from photonicking. The UltraBright-LED transilluminator can be used instead of the UV transilluminator in all Syngene G:BOX systems.
Syngene offers 2 models of blue LED transilluminator UltraSlim-LED which has a maximum gel size of 10 x 12cm for use in the In:Genius3 and U:Genius3 systems or the UltraBright-LED which can be used with gels up to 20 x 16cm for use in the G:BOX series. Both models use side mounted 470nm LED arrays for illumination.
