A new lightweight, portable gel documentation system which enables visualisation of real-time size fractionation of nucleic acids has been introduced by electrophoresis specialists Cleaver Scientific Ltd (CSL).
The RunDOC gel documentation system is designed exclusively for use with CSL’s runVIEW system and comprises a darkroom hood and a 10 megapixel digital camera to capture images of nucleic acids gels stained with EtBr, SYBR and runSAFE.
In addition to being lightweight runDOC has a small footprint, requiring only minimal space within the laboratory. Once fitted quickly and easily over the RVMSCHOICE gel tank and runVIEW base unit, gels can be imaged in real-time or at the end of the electrophoresis run.
Integral extractor fans in the bluVIEW lid and the runDOC darkroom hood remove any condensation to ensure that visualisation and resolution are not impaired, during and after electrophoresis.
According to CSL, RunDOC’s high resolution camera with 4GB memory card allows for storage of images in either RAW or JPEG formats, while the interchangeable filter slide and bluVIEW filter options provide the user with optimum flexibility.
