DUALED Blue / White Transilluminator is designed innovatively with highly sensitive dual light sources to observe nucleic acids stained fluorescently with dyes such as GreenStar™ Nucleic Acid Staining Solution I (Cat. No. C-9036, Bioneer) using 470 nm blue LED light. This product can be also used for visualizing proteins on SDS-PAGE gel stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue staining solution using white LED light. Furthermore, with the use of LED light harmless to human health, it can provide safe lab environment during agarose gel cutting and data imaging analysis.
Set this equipment in this following order. You can film with your smartphone afterwards. DUALED Blue/White Transilluminator base → Blue uniform plate → Agarose gel → Amber filter cover → Mini darkroom
Yes, those must be used. While the blue uniform plate is used for filtering LED light to 470 nm wavelength bands for excitation of fluorescent dye components attached to the DNA samples, the amber filter cover is for blocking the excitation spectrum for clear visualization of fluorescent without any light interference.
It’s not essential, but it allows more clear observation through blocking reflected ambient light.
Yes, its upper part where the blade touches is made with scratch-resistant materials. However, it is advised to handle with care as the blade may crack the glass if pressed too hard.
Make sure that the fluorescent dyes have an excitation wavelength of 400 ~ 500 nm
Try increasing the sample concentration as its insufficiency may hinder the DNA visualization
Adjust the sample fluorescent intensity by using the 3 step brightness control button on the main unit of transilluminator base
Change brightness, contrast, and exposure time to adjust the fluorescence intensity when taking images using smartphones.
Use Mini Darkroom which can provide more clear visualization of DNA by blocking the reflected ambient light
Set this equipment in this following order. You can film with your smartphone afterwards. DUALED Blue/White Transilluminator base → White uniform plate → SDS-PAGE gel → Mini darkroom
It protects the DUALED Blue/White Transilluminator base from staining by dye and seeping of moisture through the base. Furthermore, it enhances the visualization of SDS-PAGE data.
Yes, those can be seen easily without the staining process by adjusting the camera brightness, contrast, and exposure time.
Using the mini darkroom allow clear visualization through protection from the surrounding light.
