LB-18 | UltraBright LED blue/green light transilluminator for gel imaging and band cutting, 505 nm, 200 mm x 160 mm sample viewing area

Key Features

  • Incorporates powerful Nichia LEDs emitting blue/green light at 505 nm and a dichroic filter to significantly reduce background noise and highlight bands. Ideal for band cutting.
  • No damage to DNA and no risk to personnel from using UV
  • <5% CV across the full viewing area
  • Adjustable amber filter enclosed in aluminium alloy metal frame
  • 200 mm x 160 mm (W x D) sample viewing area
  • Sensitivity down to 1 ng nucleic acid


The Maestrogen UltraBright LED blue/green light transilluminator has two side-mounted high intensity LED arrays that generate uniform and bright excitation at 505 nm. This makes this instrument ideal for  excitation of a wide range of dyes including EtBr, SYBR® Safe, SYBR Gold, SYBR® Green I & II, SYPRO® Ruby, SYPRO® Orange, Coomassie Fluor™ Orange stains, GelGreen, GelRed and Lumitein™ Protein Gel Stain.

Gels up to 200 mm x 160 mm can be viewed. The use of a dichroic filter significantly blocks background noise and greatly enhances the contrast of bands to provide ideal viewing conditions for image capture and band cutting.
