UV Transilluminators

Accuris™ UV Transilluminators feature space-saving designs, to fit perfectly in any busy laboratory. Two models are available, the standard E3000 and new E3100 myView compact model.  Choose your model depending on your application and the size or number of gels to analyze.

E3100 myView Compact UV Transilluminator

The myView’s four 6W bulbs coupled with a reflector system and special diffusing filter glass provide exceptional uniformity across the viewing surface. This allows for quantification of DNA and also higher quality imaging when using a camera system.

Users are protected by harmful effects of UV radiation by the hinged, UV blocking safety cover. Two friction hinges on the front edge of the cover allow for easy adjustment of the cover angle. Position the cover horizontally for general viewing, tilt it at an angle for gel access and band cutting, or fully open to use the SmartDoc ™ Imaging Enclosure and filters (sold separately) for gel imaging with a smartphone.  Use filter E5001-UVBLOCK for best results when imaging SmartGlow, SYBR or ETBR stained gels.

The myView™ Transilluminator has a surprisingly small footprint (smaller than a standard piece of paper). However, the viewing surface is large enough to accommodate a mid-sized gel or multiple smaller gels. The 16.5 x 13.5 cm filter glass is scratch resistant to allow band excision with a metal blade.

E3000 UV Transilluminator

The E3000 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.

An array of 4 high intensity UV bulbs coupled with an optimized filter provides even illumination across the viewing surface and allows detection of small sample quantities. The dual intensity switch can be used to lower the UV intensity to 50% to reduce DNA damage during long exposure times, or switch to high intensity (100%) for viewing weak fluorescent signals or for photo documentation.

The acrylic UV blocking cover allows safe viewing of samples and has two friction hinges on the front edge to allow angling of the cover for gel access. The cover can be positioned to 90° (straight up) to fit a gel imaging hood, such as the Accuris SmartDoc™ imaging enclosure.
