PRESS RELEASE

GelMax Imager for fast and easy precast and mini gel imaging!

Upland, CA - May, 2012 -- UVP, LLC announces the release of the new GelMax™ Imager designed for fast, easy imaging of precast and mini gels. The GelMax accommodates a wide range of precast and mini gels up to 11.5 x 16cm in size. "The new GelMax precast and mini gel imager allows researchers to quickly achieve picture-perfect, publication-quality images in a small, simple package. With the increasing popularity of precast gels in the lab, the GelMax is the latest in a long line of gel/blot imaging innovations from UVP," reports Alexander Waluszko, Vice President of Marketing and Sales.

Easily illuminate the gels with multiple transillumination light sources for maximizing fluorophore stain excitation. Midrange 302nm UV is conveniently built into the unit to view ethidium bromide and other stains. The modular design enables placement of interchangeable Samples Plates onto the UV. The Plates convert midrange UV to specific wavelengths for a variety of applications. The Visi-Blue™ Sample Plate converts the UV to 460-470nm blue light for viewing stains such as SYBR Green, SYBR Safe and GelGreen. When white light transillumination is required for viewing gels such as Coomassie Blue and Silver stain, the White Light Sample Plate can be placed on the UV plate. Longwave 365nm UV can be achieved by using the Longwave Sample Plate. A Black Sample Plate allows for placement of samples not requiring transillumination. Store the plates in the convenient plate holder when plates are not in use.

The GelMax simplifies imaging with the intuitive workflow-based software. Easy to use one-touch buttons enable fast image capture. The intuitive software effortlessly controls the high resolution color camera which captures brilliant publication-quality images. Researchers can generate extensive quantitative analysis results using molecular weight, histograms, lane profile graphs and other tools. Quickly export data to Excel and other programs for documentation and publication.

With its compact size, the Imager reduces lab bench space requirements. The GelMax is the only truly plug and play precast and mini gel imager, requiring no user training. Its efficient design enables researchers to easily view gels using multiple light sources, quickly capture and save publication-quality images and analyze lanes and bands. It is the only gel imager researchers will need for fluorescent, colorimetric and blue light imaging of precast and mini gels.
