"Two-in-One" Transilluminators Provide Both Ultraviolet and White Light Illumination

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - October 08, 2015) - Spectronics Corporation manufactures state-of-the-art transilluminators built to exacting standards used for visualization of target DNAs and proteins. They work by emitting high levels of UV radiation through the viewing surface.

The advanced Spectroline® Bi-O-Vision™ Series transilluminators feature two workstations, producing both 312nm ultraviolet and white light. The TD-1000R model offers fixed-intensity while the TVD-1000R model offers variable-intensity control of either UV or white light. These units are continuously adjustable from 100% down to 50%. This enables researchers to select medium wavelength ultraviolet or white light illumination to view fluorescent gels or visible blots.

The UV-B (312nm) intensity of the TVD-1000R can be varied. This flexibility in irradiance control helps ensure the longest sample preparation time, while minimizing actual UV damage to the sample.

The Bi-O-Vision transilluminator has two adjacent workstations, each with a filter area of 8 x 8" (20 x 20 cm). The UV side is lit by five 8-watt UV-B tubes and delivers nanogram sensitivity for detecting ethidium bromide-stained DNA or RNA. The white light side has three 8-watt fluorescent tubes that ensure excellent illumination for viewing Coomassie blue-stained protein gels, methylene blue-stained DNA gels and autoradiograms.

Headquartered in Westbury, New York, Spectronics Corporation invented fluorescent leak detection in 1955, and remains the world's leading manufacturer of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent dyes. Spectroline® cutting-edge, top-quality, industry-awarded lamps, dyes, radiometers and diagnostic tools are built to exacting standards, and are used for literally dozens of markets, some of which include Industrial, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Laboratory, Semiconductor, Nondestructive Testing and Forensics. Spectronics Corporation is dedicated to upholding high standards in design manufacturing, ensuring customer satisfaction and developing innovative technologies that make the world a better place.
