FastGene FAS Digi

DNA Detection and Documentation with red or green DNA dyes

We would like to introduce a new Gel Documentation System for analyzing DNA/RNA in agarose gels to you. This system is our flagship product for the year to end business and perfectly fills the gap in our existing product line. It includes the unique Blue/Green LED technology which shows the highest sensitivity for detection of nucleic acids in agarose gels. The FAS Digi can be used for green as well as for red dyes, meaning even if your customers is still using Ethidium Bromide and/or GelRed, they can use the main features of LED technology in comparison to UV light.

  1. LED light will not damage your eyes and skin

  2. LED light will not damage your DNA (see our application note for higher  cloning efficiency)

  3. LED diodes have a much larger life span as UV bulbs , 50000 hours

The Blue/Green LED technology enables the detection of red dyes, such as Ethidium Bromide and of our next generation green dyes Midori Green. Both dyes can be visualized using the amber filter on top of the unit.


See the sharpest bands, even at low signals

The FastGene® FAS Digi Imaging System uses Pentax' flagship digital camera the MX-1. Its lens has an optimal zoom range and has a big aperture (f/1.8-f2.5), therefore allowing bright bands, even in the darkest situations.

Very easy to handle and perfect results out of the box

Get great results right after you start. The simplicity of the system guaranties a quick learning process. Images are saved in the established jpeg format, allowing you to use any imaging program to review your image.

Advanced options are available

The Pentax MX-1 is able to record images in a RAW format, so that advanced users can get the most information out of the images.
