The Accuris™ E3000 UV Transilluminator features a space-saving design, with a width of only 10.5 inches, to fit perfectly in any busy laboratory. However, the 16 x 19 cm UV viewing surface is sized to accommodate large gels or multiple smaller gels. The illuminated surface is comprised of a special black glass which is easy to clean, durable and scratch resistant.
Safer for samples, safer for you: The SmartBlue Transilluminator is the perfect partner for the most common safe DNA stains. It emits blue light at a wavelength of 465nm, perfect for excitation of most green fluorophors, including our Accuris' SmartGlow™, SYBR Green, SYBR Safe, SYBR Gold, GelStar, GelGreen, to name a few. The SmartBlue also works for excitation of EtBr, see our Technical Bulletin with sample images. Exposing DNA to this wavelength does not cause molecular damage, and results in a much higher downstream cloning efficiency as compared to even short UV light exposures. In addition, the visible blue light is not damaging to the user's skin and is less harmful to the eyes.*
SmartGlow PS (Pre Stain) can be used as a direct replacement for Ethidium Bromide in agarose and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The stain emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA or ssDNA and emits red fluorescence when bound to RNA. SmartGlow PS exhibits excitation peaks at 290nm and 490nm, allowing it to be used with UV and blue light. SmartGlow™ LD (Loading Dye) is supplied at 6X concentration and is added directly to the samples. No dye needs to be added to the gel or running buffer. After electrophoretic separation, view and document your results using a UV or blue light illuminator. SmartGlow™ LD emits green fluorescence when bound to dsDNA, ssDNA and RNA.
