Make the move to Blue
...the smart alternative to UV
  • Safe blue light for gel viewing
  • Does not damage DNA- Safe for users
  • Bright and uniformly lit viewing surface Compatible with SmartGlow™ and SYBR® type stains
  • Dual position filter cover for gel viewing and excising bands
Safer for samples and safer for you
Visible blue wavelength at 465nm is not damaging to DNA, so DNA bands can be cut out and used for further experiments. Downstream cloning efficiency is very high due to minimal DNA degradation. The blue light is non-hazardous to eyes or skin.
Two position filter cover
The SmartBlue Mini requires no special safety shielding, but blue light needs to be filtered for dye visualization. The detachable, dual-position amber cover filters out the blue light, allowing stained DNA bands to be seen clearly. The cover can also be placed at a 60º angle for band excision or in the horizontal position for general viewing.
Bright fluorescent bands
The SmartBlue Mini incorporates powerful LEDs with a diffuser and filter to provide optimal excitation of green fluorescent dyes. Light penetrating the gel from below provides a high level of sensitivity to detect small quantities of DNA.

Long lasting LED technology
An array of super bright LEDs with a 30,000 hour service life provide the light source for the SmartBlue Mini. To save energy, the power switch includes an automatic 5-minute shutoff. A scratch proof cover glass protects the lighted surface, allowing gels to be cut with a metal blade. The SmartBlue Mini Transilluminator is covered by a 2 year warranty.
