SMOBiO's B-BOX™ is a long wavelength, blue light LED epi-illuminator. It is compact in design and robust in structure. Its safety features include a non-UV light source, non-carcinogenic DNA/ Protein dye, and a low operating voltage of only 12 volts.
B-BOX™ also comes with amber colored filter goggles and high quality non-flickering LED lights that are highly sensitive for DNA and protein dye.
B-BOX™ can greatly ease the routine chore of gel extraction, enabling easy visualization and gel cutting even in bright ambient light. The Multi-angle filter plate provides optimal angles for gel cutting, visualization, and documentation. Finally, a built in barrier system built around the working area helps facilitate cleaning.
Why use blue light not UV light ?
1.UV light damages the DNA sequence
2.DNA electrophoresis mobility is reduced after exposure to UV light
3.Cloning efficiency is reduced after exposure to UV light
