Product News: Simple imaging with results you can trust

26 Jan 2021


Alpha Laboratories has announced the launch of the new gelLITE gel documentation system, a compact and convenient system for documentation of agarose gels and stained protein gels.

A 302nm UV transilluminator enables imaging of large format agarose gels or stained protein gels up to 20 x 20 cm, and can slide out from the main body of the system allowing gel extraction of DNA fragments.

The gelLITE gel documentation system provides complete control with its manually controlled camera zoom and focus. The 5 Megapixel camera also gives excellent low light sensitivity for clear resolution of closely spaced DNA bands and ensures even low levels of fluorescence are detected.

Included free of charge is the intuitive genePIX acquisition software which enables a fast and efficient workflow. Additionally, the geneQUANT analysis software features automated lane and band detection, and pre-loaded DNA ladder standards for simple quantification and automated report creation.

Optional converters are also available - blue light converters for safe DNA extraction and reduced DNA damage, and white light converters for enhanced contrast of visible protein stains. The gelLITE gel documentation system offers an economic and effective solution for agarose gel imaging, perfect in a GLP environment.
