The Safe Imager™ 2.0 Blue-Light Transilluminator is designed for viewing stained gels on the laboratory bench top, or within a gel documentation system. The Safe Imager™ 2.0 is supplied with a Safe Imager™ amber filter unit, a power cord, and Safe Imager™ viewing glasses.

Light from the LED source inside the transilluminator passes through a blue filter producing a single-intensity signal at approximately 470 nm, effective for the excitation of SYBR® Safe DNA gel stain, and many other other Invitrogen proprietary nucleic acid and protein stains, such as SYBR® Gold, SYBR® Green I and II, SYPRO® Ruby, SYPRO® Orange, and Coomassie Fluor™ Orange stains.

Sensitivity obtained using this instrument is comparable to that obtained with a standard UV transilluminator.
