In our conversations with numerous lab technicians, we are finding more labs that are becoming increasingly aware of the need to explore alternatives to the toxic Ethidium Bromide.

The SmartBlue Transilluminator is the perfect partner for these new 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, including Accuris' SmartGlow™

Blue light is safe for you and safe for your gels. Blue light does not nick DNA, which results in a much higher down stream cloning efficiency.

An array of super bright LEDs with a long, 30,000 hour service life provide the light source for the SmartBlue Transilluminator.

Wavelength:            Peak at 465nm

Viewing Surface:     6.6 x 4.75 in / 17 x 12 cm

Ext. Dimensions:     12.8 x 8.5 x 1.9 in/30.5 x 21.5 x 5 cm 

Unlike those in a UV Transilluminator, the filters in the SmartBlue will not solarize and degrade in performance over time.

Gel bands can be excised directly on the scratch resistant, glass viewing surface.

To save energy, the power switch includes an automatic 5 minute shutoff.

The SmartBlue Transilluminator is covered by a 2 year warranty.
