All UVP transilluminators carry a two year warranty. All UV transilluminators are equipped with a UV blocking cover, adjustable to different angles for access to the work surface. Select transilluminators can be used with UVP's BioImaging Systems as well as selected Chromato-Vue Cabinets.

FirstLight® UV Illuminator :

Maximize your quantitative imaging with the new FirstLight UV Illuminator! Unique design provides extremely uniform UV illumination, which is critical for accurate quantitative analysis.

UVP has received the prestigious "Photonics Circle of Excellence" Award from Laurin Publishing for the FirstLight UV Illuminator! The award recognizes this instrument as a technically innovative product.

  • High sensitivity and dynamic range are consistent across the illumination surface
  • Software correction of uniformity is no longer required
  • Accurate gel to gel comparison
  • Uniformity now supplies <5% coefficient of variance (CV) across the full filter area
  • When used with UVP’s BioImaging System and CCD camera, the configurations provides a low cost solution compared to laser scanning
  • Construction design includes an electronic ballast for increased stability and reduced power consumption
  • Illuminator includes a Gel-Cutter, Focus Target and UV Blocking Cover

Benchtop UV Transilluminators:

UVP offers a wide range of filter sizes and single or multiple UV wavelength transilluminators in a compact, benchtop size. UVP's patented 3UV™ Benchtop Transilluminator provides the selection of longwave, midrange and shortwave in one compact unit.

  • Increased ultraviolet output and intensity
  • Wider intensity range with variable selection
  • Reduced electrical consumption
  • Improved gel visualization and gel documentation
  • UVP's patented 3UV Benchtop Transilluminator provides the selection of 365nm, 302nm and 254nm in one compact unit
  • Easily view gels under 365nm longwave UV for extended periods of time avoiding photonicking damage. Researchers can use the 302nm midrange to increase the fluorescence for photodocumentation. Shortwave 254nm UV is used to irradiate samples

High Performance Transilluminators:

Exclusive 25-watt tubes provide high intensity performance and uniform UV illumination. Large format models offer filter sizes up to 20x40cm. Select from single UV wavelength or 2UV models 302nm and 365nm UV in one unit.

  • Increased ultraviolet output and intensity
  • Wider intensity range with variable selection
  • Improved gel visualization and gel documentation
  • Uniform, brilliant back-lit fluorescence illumination is enhanced with UVP's unique background uniformity screen and UVG long-life filter
  • The removable and adjustable protective UV blocking cover is included with each transilluminator
  • Stainless steel cover frame provide an easy clean surface and reduces cross contamination of samples
  • Transilluminators carry a two-year warranty

UV/White Light Transilluminators:

UV/White Transilluminators house white light and UV working areas side by side for multiple applications.

  • Increased ultraviolet output and intensity
  • Wider intensity range with variable selection
  • Improved gel visualization and gel documentation
  • Combination 2UV 365nm longwave, 302nm midrange and white light
  • Hinged, clear UV blocking cover, included with each transilluminator, is height adjustable for access to the filter surface
  • Easily switch among the light sources with the rocker switch on the front of the unit

Visi-Blue™ Transilluminators:

Visi-Blue Transilluminators are UV safe and convert 365nm UV to 460-470nm blue light for use with various stains including GFP stains, SYBR Green and SYPRO Orange.

Visi-Blue Transilluminators are designed for use with GFP stains. As compared to UV, the blue light will transmit through almost any transparent (plastic, glass, etc.) laboratory equipment. This is essential when monitoring and detecting DNA migration and protein expression in real time.

  • Two models are available with surface areas as follows: 21x26cm or 20x40cm
  • Select from models with 8-watts or 25-watts
  • Amber cover (included) blocks blue light transmission and allows visualization of media above 500nm
