Visi-Blue™ Transilluminators easily convert exist 302nm UV to 480nm blue light emitting no harmful UV energy output. Excellent for use with blue 460-470nm excitation samples and SYBR Green, SYPRO Orange and GFP stains. As compared to UV, the blue light will transmit through almost any transparent (plastic, glass, etc.) laboratory equipment. This is essential when monitoring and detecting DNA migration and protein expression in real time. A special amber camera filter (50mm sq) is included when photographing gels.
Visi-Blue™ transilluminators and converter plates minimize photonicking of DNA samples. The amber protective cover blocks blue light transmission and allows visualization of most samples above 500nm. VB-26V is a compact 8-watt model while the VB-40V is a large format 25-watt model.
Dimensions of VB-26: 11.25D x 14W x 5H in. (241 x 337 x 121mm) and VB-40: 13.25D x 19.13W x 5.64H in. (337 x 486 x 143mm). Height includes UV blocking orange cover.
