Traditional methods involve the use of EtBr/UV light to view gel. These traditional methods have been replaced with safer dyes and imagers like SMOBIO’s B-BOX™ blue light epi-illuminator. Using SMOBIO’s B-BOX™ / SMOBIO fluorescent dye (DS1000, NS1000, DL5000) you can improve your cloning efficiency up to 100 times. It is user friendly and easy to operate. Furthermore, blue light is safer for users in comparison to the use of UV light.
