Dark Reader hand-held lamps enable the viewing of fluorophors in a variety of settings far beyond simple electrophoresis gels

Dark Reader Spot Lamp

The new Dark Reader Spot Lamp (SL10S) generates a narrower beam about twice as intense as the Hand Lamp and covers an area about 5 cm in diameter – useful for minigels and smaller samples.

The remarkable efficiency of the Spot Lamp means that it can be powered by a small battery pack, allowing the Lamp to be easily used in remote locations.

Dark Reader Hand Lamp

All our Dark Reader Lamps use pure visible blue light as the excitation source and there is NO damaging and dangerous UV radiation to worry about. The blue light is especially suited for following fluorophors such as GFP and RFP as well as DNA stains such as GelGreen and GelStar. The Hand Lamp (HL34T) smoothly illuminates an area about 20 cm diameter (from a distance of 30 cm) and is ideal for use with bigger gels and larger samples in general.
