Use your smart phone or tablet for high quality imaging

The SmartDoc™ system is ideal for quickly obtaining quality images of your gels for your records or anaylsis. Most gel imaging systems cost thousands of dollars as they include a high resolution camera, color display, complicated control panel, computer and more. The SmartDoc™ uses the camera and computer that we already have... our smart phone.

To use the SmartDoc™, simply place the enclosure over your gel and transilluminator. Lay your smart phone or tablet onto the non-slip, rubber pad, and align the camera lens over the filter. Raising and lowering the platform allows optimization of focus and image size. Filters are available for compatibility with multiple light sources and dyes.

The Blue Light model includes high intensity blue LEDs to excite green dyes. This eliminates the need for hazardous and DNA-damaging UV light.

The SmartDoc™ imaging enclosure includes an orange photo filter for photography of the gels with a smart phone. An extending adapter can be inserted for full dimension imaging of gels up to 15 x 15 cm or removed for close up pictures. The enclosure can also be used directly on any other existing UV or blue light transilluminator. Additional filters are available for imaging gels on a UV transilluminator.

The illumination base emits an intense blue light with a peak output of 460 nm for optimum excitation of nucleic acids stained with green fluorescent dyes (SYBR® Green, SmartGlow™, GelStar™, GelGreen™, etc). The orange cover fits on top of the illumination base and acts as a filter to absorb blue light, allowing visualization of the fluorescing samples. The cover can also be set at an angle for gel access and cutting out DNA bands for further study.

Images can be previewed on the device's display before capturing the picture. Images are easily shared, printed or transferred via text message, email or cloud sharing apps.

When using the SmartDoc enclosure on transilluminators with a large illuminating surface (exceeding 19 x 19 cm), use the UV Blocking MAT to block light around the edge.
