Gel cutter: The gel cutter's edge allows for easy cutting and removal of gel material.
Gel ruler: The gel ruler has centimetre markings that fluoresce under 365 and 302 nm UV wavelengths, providing reference marks for DNA analysis.
Gel scooper: Made of strong acrylic with a bevelled edge, the gel scooper is designed for easy transfer of gels from electrophoresis equipment to viewing equipment.
Gel trays: Gel trays (in two sizes), made of UV transmitting Plexiglass, can be used for moving gels to the transilluminator. The tray protects the transilluminator filter surface from scratches. Side panels on the gel tray, angled at 45°, extend upward from the tray surface for easy handling.
Fluorescent standard step tablet: The step tablet has a calibrated 21-step gradation with density from totally clear (step 1) to totally opaque (step 21). The gradation on the step tablet allows accurate, consistent comparison of the bands and spots on acquired images for variations in lighting and optical conditions and for maximising fluorescence calibration of images. The guide lets researchers evaluate the image against the values of grey, maximising fluorescence calibration and providing a standard reference for images.
