Product Description The Bio-Rad Gel Documentation system is an easy-to-use, high-performance system. It uses a CCD camera to capture images in real time, which allows you to more accurately position and focus the image. While using Bio-Rad TDS Quantity One software, acquired images can be optimized, annotated, analyzed, and printed to a video printer or your local or network printer.
The system utilizes a Universal Hood that is light tight, it contains UV and Epi-white light sources and all the power supplies needed to operate the GelDoc camera. A CCD camera is placed on top of the Universal Hood for capturing images. The camera comes with a Motorized Zoom Lens (MZL) that allows a remote adjustment of the lens control functions viz. Zoom, Focus and Iris. The Universal Hood is designed to capture fluorescence and chemiluminescence images without using a photographic darkroom. The cabinet has a built-in white light Epi-illumination, a UV transilluminator and an optional white light transilluminator or a white light conversion screen. The drawer of the cabinet accommodates the built-in UV transilluminator. The system requires a PCI Digitizing Card to convert the video signal captured with the CCD camera to an image that can be displayed on your computer monitor. This card has to be inserted in the PCI slot of your Macintosh or PC computer.
The lights in the darkroom cabinet turn off automatically after about 15 minutes. This time period can be extended indefinitely by pressing the HOLD button.
The Universal Hood comes with a built-in UV transilluminator that has a 302-nm UV wavelength to excite most fluorescent dyes used for gel imaging applications.

Camera, computer & monitor are not included. Software & Frame Grabber card are required to run this and are not included; these are required to run and test the unit. Therefore, we are selling this AS IS (no testing, no overhaul, no warranty, no returns).
