New LED Technology for highest sensitivity of DNA/RNA in agarose gels, even suitable for red and green dyes

The use of UV transilluminators for the detection of DNA or RNA in agarose gels, is still very common, although we know quite well that the shorter the wavelenght is, the more the DNA will be damaged quickly, which is dangerous especially if the separated DNA should be used in downstream experiments like cloning or sequencing. Just seconds of UV light are enough to reduce the cloning efficiency significantly.

In contrast to UV instruments, the new innovative LED technology is using a much higher wavelenght, means energy less light. This will lead to the fact that the nucleic acids are not damaged but sometimes sensitivity is lower as compared to UV light. Furthermore regular BLUE LED technology is working well with green dyes bit couldn't be recommended with red dyes like Ethidium Bromide, becasue the longer wavelenght is favorable for green dyes but not for red components. To solve these problems, Nippon Genetics kas developed a brand new LED technology which is unique in the world so far. They have developed a so called BLUE/GREEN LED technology and have found out that this technology shows superior sensitivity with green and red dyes.

The FastGene Blue/Green LED transilluminator comes with an amber goggle, which filters the blue backlight efficiently. If you want to use gel documentation system you should check if your filters is working properly. In our experience any filter for green dyes are working fine, but if you having problems you can contact us and we will try to offer an appropriate filter.

Please note that this blue/green LED transilluminator is included in our FAS Digi system.
