Bio-Rad's Gel Doc EZ compact gel documentation system is designed to provide publication-quality images and analysis in seconds with just the push of a button.
Users of the system include researchers who perform DNA, RNA, and protein
electrophoresis as well as western blotting.
The Gel Doc EZ imager requires no training for first-time users and provides
automated push-button functionality. This eliminates the need for
researchers to manually manipulate filters, lenses, or lighting, thereby
minimizing the potential for human error.
In addition, the new system may be expanded to meet a variety of imaging
applications. The imager allows the use of multiple application-specific
trays, including a UV tray for imaging fluorescent stains such as ethidium
bromide, a white tray for imaging colorimetric stains such as Coomassie
blue, a blue tray for imaging SYBR Green-stained DNA, and a stain-free tray
for imaging proteins separated by electrophoresis on Bio-Rad's Criterion TGX
Stain-Free precast gels. The Gel Doc EZ imager is the only gel documentation
system capable of imaging stain-free gels, an advanced gel technology that
condenses traditionally long staining protocols down to a five-minute
activation and imaging process.
