Product details

The UVP GelSolo is a compact, easy-to-use, stand-alone UV gel documentation system. It is designed to acquire gel images easily and without any need for training. Thus, it is ideal for multi-user laboratories and practical trainings. The UVP GelSolo system includes a light-sensitive monochrome camera with 5 megapixel resolution. A highly sensitive zoom lens allows for high-contrast image acquisition. The system is controlled by an 11.6” touch screen with the intuitive VisionWorks image acquisition and analysis software.

Emission filters
The three-position emission filter tray can be used to place three different filters and switch between them for different applications. An Ethidium Bromide filter is included with the system, but a variety of other emission filters are available for additional purchase.

Seven different UV Transilluminator options are available based on filter size and UV wavelength (Filter sizes: 20 x 20 cm, 21 x 26 cm or 25 x 26 cm; Wavelength: 1UV 302 nm,
2UV 302/365 nm or 3UV 254/302/365 nm, 100-115 V/60 Hz or 230 V/50 Hz). A blue light transilluminator is also available.

Intuitive Software
The VisionWorks software on the UVP GelSolo is a powerful yet intuitive software for capturing gel images and analyzing them. The simple user interface enables easy access to auto and manual image capture modes under the Device tab. Exposure time can be adjusted with customizable exposure settings. Captured images are saved in TIFF or JPEG formats.

Image Analysis
Image enhancement and analysis features are included with all systems. Researchers can personalize their experiments and make use of enhancement features and annotation tools for publication purposes. The software offers many powerful tools such as noise reduction, histogram adjustment, inversion, pseudocolor, and more. The extensive analysis features such as automatic lane and band detection, 1D analysis, area density, and colony counting are optimized for accurate and reproducible results. All the data can be conveniently exported to Excel.
