SafeBlue Illuminator/ Electrophoresis System, MBE-150-PLUS


The SafeBlue Electrophoresis System also uses blue LED light to allow for immediate visualization of DNA/RNA bands while running agarose electrophoresis gel. The complete system comes with three different sizes of gel trays for your convenience of use, 150x70mm, 150x100mm and 150x150mm. The system is RoHS and CE compliant for environmental and safety concerns. Different accessories are also available for user to select.

  • Innovative - a complete 4-in-1 system (run, view, capture and cut gel) with simple and easy setup on the image capture/analysis software.
  • Convenient - run as you see, real-time visualization on your DNA/RNA band migration.
  • Compact - footprint smaller than most UV transilluminator, easy to move and ideal for limited benchtop space
  • Safe - 470nm blue light less invasive than UV light
  • Flexible - UV tray adaptors available, compatible with MJ-105A or ME15-7-10-15.
  • Versatile - support gel trays 150x150mm or smaller
  • Optimized performance - SYBR series DNA/RNA stains, Novel Juice and Midori Green series
  • Simple - DNA/RNA recovery method
