Carolina® UV Transilluminator

(in stock)


The Carolina® UV Transilluminator features a space-saving design that fits perfectly in any busy laboratory. 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 high-intensity UV bulbs coupled with an optimized filter provide even illumination across the viewing surface and allow 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 to 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 2 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 Carolina® GelView System (item #213742).
