  • UV Transilluminators

    Accuris™ UV Transilluminators feature space-saving designs, to fit perfectly in any busy laboratory. Three models are available, with a range of intensity settings and viewing surface sizes.  Choose your model depending on your application and the size or number of gels to analyze.

    • 302nm midrange UV wavelength
    • Scratch-resistant, UV filter glass
    • Optimal for EtBr, SmartGlow™, and SYBR® Stain
    • Hinged, UV-blocking safety cover




    E3000 UV Transilluminator

    The E3000 features a space-saving design, with a width of only 10.5 inches, to fit perfectly in any busy laboratory. However, 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 4 high intensity UV bulbs coupled with an optimized filter provides even illumination across the viewing surface and allows 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 switch to high intensity (100%) for viewing weak fluorescent signals or for photo documentation.


    E3100 UV Transilluminator

    The E3100 has a surprisingly small footprint (smaller than a standard piece of paper), and modern design.  The viewing surface – 16.5 x 13.5 cm filter glass – is large enough to accommodate a mid-sized gel or multiple smaller gels.  The E3100 is perfectly suited for use with our SmartDoc ™ Imaging Enclosure and filters (sold separately) for gel imaging with a smartphone.  Use filter E5001-UVBLOCK for best results when imaging SmartGlow, SYBR or ETBR stained gels.


    E3200 UV Transilluminator

    The E3200 offers a large viewing surface of 21 x 26 cm to accommodate larger gels or multiple small gels.  High powered, 14-Watt UV bulbs provide higher sensitivity, so the smallest bands of stained nucleic acids can be visualized.  The E3200 also features a control knob for continuous adjustment of the UV intensity.


    All Accuris UV Transilluminators incorporate scratch-resistant, UV filter glass.  Peak output emission of 302nm is ideal for excitation of gels stained with Ethidium Bromide, SmartGlow™, SYBR® Green and other common gel stains.

    Acrylic UV blocking covers allow safe viewing of samples, and friction hinges on the front edge allow positioning of the cover at an angle for gel access.

    Optional SmartBlue™ Plus Viewing Glasses

    SmartBlue Plus Viewing Glasses is the perfect accessory for gel imaging and precise band cutting for both UV transilluminators. Composed of UV-blocking polycarbonate and tinted orange for blocking blue light, these glasses effectively protect against blue LED and UV light.
