The use of special filter material in the UVIpure transilluminator
greatly enhances contrast, making fluorescent bands easier to
see with the naked eye or imaging systems. The special filter
eliminates visible light which reduces the need for filtering to
isolate the fluorescent band signal.
Gels stained with both ethidium bromide and Sybr® Green
are viewed on a UVIpure transilluminator with the naked eye
more easily. Since background light is eliminated no filtering is
required and no signal is lost. The dark, uniform surface of the
filter provides a high-contrast background, enabling viewing of
even the faintest bands.
The absence of visible background light and minimal IR output
from the UVIpure transilluminator enable broad transmission
camera filters to be used. This ensures that maximum
transmission of the fluorescent signal is always achieved.
