SmartBlue Blue Light

Transilluminator, US cord,

The SmartBlue Blue Light Transilluminator is the smart alternative to UV transillumination. The uniform 465nm bottom lighting illumination is perfect for excitation of most green fluorophores without damaging the DNA, thus resulting in a much higher downstream cloning efficiency. Furthermore, the two position filter cover position allows for easy access to the gel for band excision. Without the need for the use of DNA damaging UV light, you don't have to worry about any damage to the skin and eyes.

The LEDS are long lasting (with a 30,000 hour service life) providing a durable and efficient illumination option. Gels can be excised directly on the unit with the scratch resistant surface. The unit contains an automatic 5 minute timed shutoff for energy saving as well. The cover can be placed flush with the unit, at a 60 degree angle, or completely removed for use with the SmartDoc Imager (E5000-SD).

Pair with DNA Safe Stain (C138) for the ultimate viewing effectiveness!

A 230V is available upon request (SB4500-E).

This new UV transilluminator features a space-saving design while having 16 x 19 cm UV viewing surface to accommodate large gels or multiple smaller gels. The illuminated surface is comprised of a special black glass which is easy to clean, durable and scratch resistant.

Furthermore, an array of high intensity UV bulbs coupled with an optimized filter provides even illumination across the viewing surface and allows detection of small sample quantities. The dual intensity switch can be used to lower the UV intensity to 50% to reduce DNA damage during long exposure times, or switch to high intensity (100%) for viewing weak fluorescent signals or for photo documentation.

The acrylic UV blocking cover allows safe viewing of samples and has two friction hinges on the front edge to allow angling of the cover for gel access. The cover can be positioned to 90° (straight up) to fit a gel imaging hood, such as the SmartDoc imaging enclosure (E5000-SD).

Accuris SmartDoc Enclusure

with blue light illuminatio
  • Imaging enclsure works with all common smart phones
  • System includes blue light illumination base
  • Ideal for common safe stains (SmartGlow, SYBR Green, GelGreen, etc.)
  • Visible blue light will not damage DNA
  • Gel viewing and gel access for DNA band cutting
  • Imaging enclosure can also be used on existing transilluniators

The SmartDoc Blue Light (E5000-SDB) is a complete system developed for safely viewing nucleic acids in agarose gels and also for capturing quality digital images with a smart phone camera. This unit has a built in array of blue LEDs in the enclosure which emits an intense blue light with a peak output of 460nm for optimum excitation of nucleic acids stained with green fluorescent dyes (SYBR® Green, SmartGlow, GelStar, GelGreen, etc).

The SmartDoc imaging enclosure includes an orange photo filter for photography of the gels with a smart phone. The orange cover fits on top of the illumination base and acts as a filter to absorb blue light, allowing visualization of the fluorescing samples. The cover can also be set at an angle for gel access and cutting out DNA bands for further study.

An extending adapter can be inserted for full dimension imaging of gels up to 15 x 15 cm or removed for close up pictures. The camera platform can be adjusted up and down to optimize the image size and focus for different types of phone cameras. We found that different iPhones and Droid phones have cameras with different viewing angle lenses.

Additionally, the enclosure can also be used directly on any other existing UV or blue light transilluminator. Additional filters are available for imaging gels on a UV transilluminator. These optical, narrow band filters are needed whether using UV/Blue light transilluminators or the built-in blue LED illumination. These filters block wavelengths above and below the wavelength of the fluorescing gel stain and allow capturing a quality image off the bands in the gel. The filters also provide safety to the user, as they block dangerous UV wavelengths from coming through the lens hole and will protect users' eyes.

The SmartDoc Imaging Enclosure can also be purchased as a separately (item no. E5000-SD) without the blue light illumination base.  The enclosure by itself can be used on most existing UV or blue light transilluminators for smart phone imaging.

Images taken (with customer's phone) can be previewed on the device display before capturing. Images are then easily shared or printed via text message, email or cloud sharking apps. Gel analysis software, such as freeware found at, can be used to analyze the image.

  • Attach the door (not shown) to create a darkroom environment when imaging colonies with GFP fluorescence

Select from Several Light Sources

When colony samples require different light sources, the ColonyDoc-It enables the easy selection of bright LED lighting. The white light and fluorescent sources visualize a wide array of bacterial, yeast and mold colonies with samples found in air, water, food and cosmetics. The blue light is used for colonies stained with green fluorescent protein (GFP). Doors (detachable) create a darkroom environment when imaging colonies with GFP. Select from:

  • Darkfield

  • Epi and transillumination white light

  • Epi blue light

High Resolution Camera

The integrated 17.9 megapixel digital color camera lets you quickly capture and see all of the details in your colony sample. The high resolution capabilities allow capture of images down to 0.08mm. No need to adjust camera buttons, since the camera is easily controlled by the software.

Colony Counter Software

The ColonyDoc-It software loads on your computer* for camera control, image capture and analysis. The software enables automatic and manual colony counting capabilities. Users can define specific counting parameters including color differentiation, splitting or merging colonies, identifying filters by group or size. Users can create templates for specific camera settings and analysis functions, allowing the same settings to be selected each time an experiment is run. 

Generate Reports

The accurate count and statistical reporting functions enable researchers to immediately identify and determine experimental parameters that are critical for colony growth and inhibition. The software generates statistics and displays the most critical information about the colony area, perimeter, average diameter and circularity. The data is easily exported into Excel.
