BioDoc-It2 Applications

The BioDoc-It2 is designed for basic gel documentation. Stained gels are illuminated on the UV transilluminator which is built into the system. Select from either a 302nm UV transilluminator or 3UV model with 254/302/365nm UV.

Additional stained gels may be viewed by adding White or Visi-Blue™ Light Plates. These plates are available for excitation of additional gels. Plate sizes are 21x26cm or 25x26cm.
