Stand-alone Gel Documentation System
UVP UVsolo touch is an extra compact system for gel documentation without the need for a personal computer. The system is designed to acquire gel images very easily and without any need for training.
The UVP UVsolo system comes with a light-sensitive black & white camera with a high resolution of 5 megapixels. An also light-sensitive zoom lens provides for images of high contrast. The system is controlled by a touch screen with an intuitive to use image acquisition software. With live view all changes of the camera´s integration time, the lens aperture setting or of the zoom area are displayed in real-time on the 11.6 inch screen. Saturation monitoring allows the easy capture of fully quantifiable images. The gel images are saved in the universal file formats tif (16 bit file format), jpg, bmp or png on USB storage device, the internal tablet memory or via wireless network on a network computer. For prints a printer with USB interface can be connected to the UVsolo touch. With a software print button printing is directly started. Recommended printer is a high-resolution thermal printer which creates brilliant prints on highglossy paper.
Seven different UV Transilluminator options are available based on filter size (20 x 20 cm, 21 x 26 cm or 25 x 26 cm) and UV wavelength (302 nm, 302/365 nm oder 254/302/365 nm). It is possible to control the UV intensity in 3 levels: Image acquisition should always be done with maximum UV intensity with switch setting “High”. For cutting samples out of gels it is recommended to reduce the UV intensity to avoid a damage of the samples. This can be done with switch settings “Medium” and “Low”.
Users of the UVP UVsolo touch are savely protected against UV radiation: Opening the front door automatically switches off the UV light. A direct and safe view to the fluorescent gel under UV illumination is possible through the gel viewing window in the front door. For cutting gels under UV illumination two side-access doors are included.
Documentation of coloured gels
The image acquisition of non-fluorescent gels, e.g. silver or Coomassie Blue stained polyacrylamide gels can be done with the optional available converter plate. This plate is directly placed on top of the UV transilluminator. The plate converts the UV light to visible light, similar to the light of a white light table.
Illumination with blue light
For the excitation of fluorescent samples with blue light a blue-light converter plate is available.
Analysis of gel images
Main application of the UVP UVsolo touch typically is saving and printing of gel images. But it is also possible to analyse gels with the included gel analysis software VisionWorks. Users of the UVsolo install the VisionWorks software on a separate personal computer. Gel images in tif or jpg file format can be imported into the VisionWorks analysis software. The calculation of fragment sizes or a quantification of sample material is easily done in a few steps.
