This compact, economical and portable gel imaging system from Maestrogen is ideal for routine image capture from gels stained with UV dyes such as Ethidium Bromide or blue light-sensitive fluorescent dyes such as GelRed, GelGreen, SYBRSafe and SYBR Green that are excited in the 470 nm range. 

The darkroom contains embedded LED blue light (470 nm) and UV light sources (302 nm) that conserve space compared to transilluminators. The imaging system includes a 24.7 megapixel digital camera that is incorporated into the hood. It also includes a switchable filter holder that allows switching between UV and blue LED light sources. 

Captured images can be sent by USB (2.0) or wirelessly to a suitable device or stored on the camera's SD/SDHC memory card in JPEG format.
