Dolphin-View image system is a recently updated stand-alone documentation system, ideal for fluorescent or colorimetric samples, e.g. DNA or protein gels. The compact space saving darkroom is equipped with a sensitive CCD-camera and a 312 nm UV-transilluminator on a slide-out frame wich makes sample handling extremely convenient. Images captured with the CCD-camera are directly displayed on a large LCD monitor. The built in software that controls image capture and image save/load and delete functions is managed directly by an on-screen touch panel. For further processing and analysis of captured images, data can be conveniently transferred via USB to a PC. Wealtec offers a range of external thermal printers that can be directly connected to the image system and provide named, timed and dated printouts of captured images. Given its size, sensitivity, user-friendliness and rapid generation of data, Dolphin-View is a the perfect image system for everyday laboratory image documentation needs.
