A UV transilluminator is used to illuminate biological samples stained with fluorescent dyes. Its operation is simple but sophisticated: it emits ultraviolet light, which is absorbed by the dyes and then re-emitted as visible fluorescence. This visible light helps us to identify and study DNA, RNA, and protein samples.

In addition, this equipment is capable of reducing recurring manual tasks, minimizing the margin of human error and considerably increasing the efficiency of laboratory procedures. Thus, its incorporation results in significant savings in time and resources. Another advantage of the ultraviolet fluorescence illuminator is its accuracy. Unlike traditional methods, its use allows a more accurate and detailed detection of samples, increasing the reliability of the results.
