Gel Documentation

Wealtec Gel Documentation systems

Gel Doc, also known as Gel Documentation System, Gel Image System or Gel Imager, is widely used in molecular biology laboratories for the imaging and documentation of nucleic acid and protein polyacrylamide or agarose gels typically stained with ethidium bromide or other fluorophores such as SYBR Green. Generally, a Gel Doc is composed of an ultraviolet (UV) light transilluminator, a hood to shield external light sources and a camera for image capturing.

Dolphin Chemi mini


Dolphin Chemi mini is a compact and user-friendly image system equipped with an advance Peltier-cooled 16-bit CCD camera which is used to detect the weak signal generated by the luminal chemical reaction. It not only allows higher sensitivity, but also enhances a quiet operation. The small dark room with two position tray has provided a proper environment for capturing image. Upon capturing the image, Wealtec’s Dolphin 1D software serves as a best platform for data analysis and the features can provide various analyzing application such as band quantification, thus the combination offers a convenient way for image capturing and analysis. With 10 hours maximum exposure through 10 accumulations and automatic, incremental or one-shot manual exposures modes, users have the options to choose the best image for different exposure time through computer without the need to use the X-ray film.

Dolphin-View (USB version)


Dolphin-View image system is a recently updated stand-alone documentation system, ideal for fluorescent or colorimetric samples, e.g. DNA or protein gels. The compact space saving darkroom is equipped with a sensitive CCD-camera and a 312 nm UV-transilluminator on a slide-out frame wich makes sample handling extremely convenient. Images captured with the CCD-camera are directly displayed on a large LCD monitor. The built in software that controls image capture and image save/load and delete functions, is managed directly by an on-screen touch panel. For further processing and analysis of captured images, data can be conveniently transferred via USB to a PC. Wealtec offers a range of external thermal printers that can be directly connected to the image system and provide named, timed and dated printouts of captured images. Given its size, sensitivity, user-friendliness and rapid generation of data, Dolphin-View is a the perfect image system for everyday laboratory image documentation needs.

Dolphin-Scan


Wealtecs Doplhin-Scan dual bed scanner captures high resolution data with a great dynamic linear range. With transmission or reflective modes, image documentation of transparent (e.g. coomassie blue or silver stained gels or x-ray films) as well as opaque (e.g. colorimetric stained western blot membranes) samples are possible. A scanning area of 203 x 254 mm for transparent area and 216 x 254 mm for reflective, enables for scanning of large samples e.g. large 2D gels. Operated by Dolphin-1D software, Dolphin-Scan becomes the perfect life science documentation system for colorimetric samples.
