Easily image DNA and protein gels images without a darkroom with the Azure c200.
Use your choice of dyes or stains and the system automatically selects the light source and filters for you:
- UV for Ethidium bromide-stained DNA gels
- blue light for SYBR®Safe or similar dyes
- white light for Silver stain or Coumassie Blue
Compact design—38cm W X 55cm H X 36cm D, keep more space free on your bench
Fully upgradable—add fluorescent or chemiluminescent Western detection capabilities as your needs evolve
“Safe” Dye Detection An alternative to ethidium bromide, less-harmful ‘Safe’ dyes can be imaged with the EPI Blue LEDs standard in the system.
Protein gels stained with Coomassie blue or silver stain can easily be imaged using the visible light application.
DNA Detection with Ethidium Bromide
With the a dual-wavelength 302 nm and 365 nm UV transilluminator, images of ethidium bromide-stained DNA gels can be captured in a fraction of a second. An interlock switch prevents accidental exposure to UV. For band excision, the switch can be overridden with the press of a button, and the UV transilluminator can be pulled out..
