When using a digital camera with a UV transilluminator, a narrow bandpass filter is required. The bandpass filters allows only the light caused by the flourescence of the gel to be transmitted to the camera. All other light is blocked by the filter. The narrow bandpass filter value is determined by the stain used on the gel and the flourescence of that gel. Typical filters are the PECA 590, PECA 560 and PECA 535.
Typical UV gel documentation system consists of:
Hood - size depended on gel size
Rubber mat for transilluminator
DNA gel shot on UV transilluminator
with a PECA 590 filter.
Peca Products has designed and manufactured mounting brackets for a great number of digital cameras. Digital cameras models change frequently. Currently Peca is suppling the Canon G15 camera. Cameras may be furnished by the customer, however if we have not previously designed a bracket, the camera must be shipped to Peca Products for bracket design. There is not a charge for the design work.
