Dark Reader ® Technology
Revolutionary Fluorescence
Visible Light
SYBR Gold
EGFP
Nicotinia inoculated with tobavirus expressing EGFP
Dark Reader blue LED transilluminators and hand lamps reveal fluorescent DNA, RNA, proteins and other biological samples using a revolutionary combination of a VISIBLE blue light source and two color filters.
DNA gel stained with SYBR Gold
Very Sensitive
Dark Reader apparatus is at least as sensitive as UV for the detection of many popular dyes and can be used to see, directly by eye, less than 100 pg of stained DNA.
SYPRO Orange
EYFP
Protein gel stained with SYPRO Orange
E. coli expressing EYFP
Very Safe
Because Dark Reader devices emits no UV, there is essentially zero risk of eye and skin damage, the extent of DNA sample damage is drastically reduced and cloning is increased over 100-fold.
RFP
GelStar
Very Versatile
Transgenic zebrafish expressing RFP
Electrophoresis of Gelstar-stained DNA
The Dark Reader visible light source is particularly effective for viewing fluorophors through glass and plastic, and even in transgenic plants and animals.
