Ultra-Slim UV Transilluminators Ideal for Working With Small Gels and Samples

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - July 13, 2015) - Spectronics Corporation's Slimline™ Series UV transilluminators are equipped with a filter glass that measures just 4.3" x 5.5" (11 x 14 cm), making them ideal for working with mini gels and samples. The cost effective transilluminators feature a slim profile that utilizes just four 8-watt UV tubes, thus reducing operating costs and minimizing UV exposure to the lab technician. Spectroline® UV transilluminators address important issues of UV emissions. The units are engineered with upmost attention to fluorescence response and protection against UV-induced DNA damage.

An exclusive LONGLIFE™ UV filter glass inhibits solarization up to 50 times longer than traditional UV filters, extending filter life dramatically and providing longer usage. A unique diffusing screen ensures superior light distribution and eliminates confusing light striations caused by the contours of the tubes. The UV-transmitting filter allows manipulation of gels directly on the transilluminator and shields the filter glass from cuts, scratches and breakage.

A hinged UV-blocking cover protects users from harmful UV radiation and the need for additional UV-absorbing clothing or face wear. It also protects the filter from damage caused by dropping objects on the glass. Constructed of heavy-duty, acrylic-based,
UV-blocking material, the cover fits well over all gels and TLC plates.

Slimline Series UV transilluminators measure a mere 11.5" W x 14" L x 2.5" H (29.2 x 35.6 x 5.7 cm) and can fit easily in today's crowded laboratories. They're available in three fixed-intensity units with 254nm, 312nm, or 365nm wavelengths, as well as 120V/60Hz, 240V/50Hz and 100V/50-60Hz.
