Compact UV Transilluminator

(ships from manufacturer, est arrival 10/9/23)


The Compact UV Transilluminator's four 6-W 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 higher quality imaging when using a camera system as well.

Users are protected from the 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 Carolina® GelView System (item #213742).

The 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 0 blade.

  • Dimensions: Viewing surface, 16.5 x 13.5 cm; exterior, 10 x 8 x 2-3/4" (25 x 20 x 7 cm)
  • Electrical: 120 or 230 V; 50–60 Hz
