WESTBURY, N.Y., Oct. 3, 2013 — The Spectroline Bi-O-Vision series transilluminators from Spectronics Corp. produce both 312-nm UV and white light to view fluorescent gels or visible blots for life science applications. The devices feature two adjacent workstations, each with a filter area of 20 × 20 cm. The UV side is lit by five 8-W UV-B tubes and delivers nanogram sensitivity for detecting ethidium bromide-stained DNA or RNA. The white-light side has three 8-W fluorescent tubes for viewing Coomassie blue-stained protein gels, methylene blue-stained DNA gels and autoradiograms. The TD-1000R model offers fixed intensity, while the TVD-1000R model offers variable intensity. The units are continually adjustable from 100 percent to 50 percent.
