MBE-300 | BluView blue light transilluminator for gel imaging and band cutting, 470 nm, 112 mm x 75 mm sample viewing area








Key Features

  • Emits blue light at 470 nm instead of UV so no risk to personnel or samples
  • Sample viewing area of 112 mm x 75 mm
  • High light uniformity
  • Lightweight body with aluminium alloy casing
  • Can be combined with a gel electrophoresis system to perform real-time observations and error detection
  • Low heat dispersion and energy use
  • Supplied with a separate 580 nm amber emission filter for band identification

Description

The compact BluView MBE-300 transilluminator is designed for exciting and visualising fluorescent dyes that are activated in the 470 nm range. This makes it an ideal replacement for UV light that can pose a risk to lab personnel and damage nucleic acid samples. 

The BluView MBE-300 features a rugged aluminium alloy frame and is lightweight and easily portable between labs. The 580 nm amber emission filter is separate from the transilluminator to increase portability and allows for the easy visualisation of bands for identification and/or excision.



The MBE-300 operates on 12VDC from an external power supply to reduce energy use and to lower heat dispersion.

Ordering Information
