Dark Reader® Non-UV Transilluminators


The Dark Reader is a revolutionary transilluminator that emits essentially zero UV light and is ideal for maintaining the integrity of DNA crucial for the success of many manipulations. Used with SYBR Green or GelStar, the Dark Reader allows the direct visual detection of as little as 100pg of DNA. The Dark Reader is very easy to use; just put the gel on the surface of the Dark Reader, then place the amber screen over the gel and look at the DNA bands. For cutting out bands, the glasses can be worn.

The Dark Reader is excellent for the detection of any dye excited between 420nm and 500nm and emitting over 520nm. It also works fairly well with dyes excited over 500nm such as ethidium and eosin, but is not quite as sensitive as a UV box. The Dark Reader Gel Box is a unique electrophoresis unit allowing DNA fragments to be directly viewed as they migrate. Continuously monitor the progress of DNA fractionation so that a gel only needs to be run until the DNA band(s) of interest are separated: Gel running times can be cut to 15-20 minutes. DNA bands can be excised right out of the gel avoiding the danger of damaging the gel during transfer to a transilluminator.
