RunDOC gel documentation system for imaging real-time nucleic acid gels.

A new lightweight, portable gel documentation system which enables visualization of real-time size fractionation of nucleic acids has been introduced by electrophoresis specialists Cleaver Scientific Ltd (CSL).

The RunDOC gel documentation system is designed exclusively for use with CSL’s innovative runVIEW system and comprises a darkroom hood and a 10 megapixel digital camera to capture images of nucleic acids gels stained with EtBr, SYBR and runSAFE.

RunDOC is designed to be placed directly over the RVMSCHOICE gel tank located on the runVIEW base unit, which includes an integrated power supply and blue LED gel illuminator.

The blue LED gel illuminator provides the excitation source for the DNA gel located within the tank and following excitation the light emitted is then visualized using either one of the bluVIEW lid options supplied with runVIEW, or the runDOC filter slide.

In addition to being lightweight runDOC has a small footprint and so requires only minimal space within the laboratory. Once fitted quickly and easily over the gel tank and base unit, gels can be imaged either in real-time or at the end of the electrophoresis run.

Integral extractor fans in the bluVIEW lid and the runDOC darkroom hood remove any condensation to ensure that visualization and resolution are not impaired, during and after electrophoresis.

RunDOC’s high resolution 10 megapixel camera with 4GB memory card allows for storage of images in either RAW or JPEG formats, while the interchangeable filter slide and bluVIEW filter options provide the user with optimum flexibility.
