WESTBURY, NY –(Marketwired – October 08, 2015) – Spectronics Corporation manufactures state-of-the-art transilluminators built to exacting standards used for visualization of target DNAs and proteins. They work by emitting high levels of UV radiation through the viewing surface.The advanced Spectroline(®) Bi-O-Vision™ Series transilluminators feature two workstations, producing both 312nm ultraviolet and white light. The TD-1000R model offers fixed-intensity while the TVD-1000R model offers variable-intensity control of either UV or white light. These units are continuously adjustable from 100% down to 50%. This enables researchers to select medium wavelength ultraviolet or white light illumination to view fluorescent gels or visible blots.The UV-B (312nm) intensity of the TVD-1000R can be varied. This flexibility in irradiance control helps ensure the longest sample preparation time, while minimizing actual UV damage to the sample.The Bi-O-Vision transilluminator has two adjacent workstations, each with a filter area of 8 x 8″ (20 x 20 cm). The UV side is lit by five 8-watt UV-B tubes and delivers nanogram sensitivity for detecting ethidium bromide-stained DNA or RNA. The white light side has three 8-watt fluorescent tubes that ensure excellent illumination for viewing Coomassie blue-stained protein gels, methylene blue-stained DNA gels and autoradiograms.Headquartered in Westbury, New York, Spectronics Corporation invented fluorescent leak detection in 1955, and remains the world’s leading manufacturer of ultraviolet equipment and fluorescent dyes. Spectroline(®) cutting-edge, top-quality, industry-awarded lamps, dyes, radiometers and diagnostic tools are built to exacting standards, and are used for literally dozens of markets, some of which include Industrial, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration, Laboratory, Semiconductor, Nondestructive Testing and Forensics. Spectronics Corporation is dedicated to upholding high standards in design manufacturing, ensuring customer satisfaction and developing innovative technologies that make the world a better place.
