Electrophoresis gel boxes and geldoc system
Posted 21 January 2010 - 01:12 PM
I'm looking around for a good quality (rugged) midi-sized gel box (15x10cm gel sizes) to do some cloning, PCR etc. I'm also wondering about solutions to hook up a cheap but effective CCD with a UV-illuminator. What cameras work with the Biorad's Quantity One software? Oh, will be nice if I can avoid UV. Are there any blue LEDs that work very well with sybr dyes? Thanks a million for any suggestions.
I have a $1K budget, btw.

I quite like OWL scientific gel running stuff - available from Thermo Scientific and other distributors (apparently, having just had a quick google for it).

We use Alpha Innotech hood (old style, just a plastic funnel to cover the UV source and a mounting position for the camera) and an Olympus camera with UV filter (purchased from a camera store). This unit has been working without problems for years.
