Included:An amber viewing screen that fits exactly over the blue surface is included with each transilluminator. The amber screen absorbs the blue excitation light, after it has illuminated the sample, allowing the user(s) to clearly see the fluorescence. The amber screen can also be used as a camera filter.

All Dark Reader transilluminators are also provided with a free pair of AG16 viewing glasses with exactly the same optical properties as the screen. The glasses are a key accessory for cutting bands out of gels.
