UVP UV Transilluminators

UV transilluminators for fluorescent dyes

The UVP UV Transilluminators feature a uniform and bright UV illumination. The use of high-grade filter glass provides for excellent documentation results with lowest background signal. The high illumination uniformity allows the reliable quantification of electrophoretically separated fluorescent samples.

The UVP UV Transilluminators are equipped with an ultraviolet blocking cover to shield the user from harmful UV radiation. Models include a stainless steel top assembly or powder coat paint.

Variable light intensity switch

The variable intensity models allow you to switch between three 302nm UV light intensities depending on your application:

  • High intensity for strongest signals for gel photography or highest sensitivity at low sample concentration
  • Medium intensity is excellent for viewing and quick excision of a single band
  • Low intensity is used for positioning and focusing for photography or for excising multiple bands

The variable intensity models can be recognized by the "V" at the end of the product name.

Choose 1, 2 or 3 UV wavelengths

The standard UV Transilluminator has an excitation wavelength of 302 nm (designated with "M" in the product name) and comes in three different sizes, with or without intensity switch.

If you prefer a longer wavelength to avoid DNA damage choose the LM models, which come with single intensity setting and 8-watt UV bulbs of 302 nm and 365 nm. Available filter sizes are 20 x 20 cm and 21 x 26 cm.

The "LMS" model offers three wavelengths: 254, 302 and 365 nm.

High performance (25W) UV transilluminators

High performance UVP Transilluminators, designated by "PL" carry 25W instead of 8W ultraviolet tubes, providing a total of 100 watts of brilliant UV illumination.

  • variable intensity setting
  • 302 nm or 365 nm
  • no light flicker
  • fast lamp start-up
