Using the VWR® Basic system it is possible to produce images of electrophoresis gels stained with many fluorescent and colorimetric dyes, including: Coomassie® blue, silver stain, ethidium bromide, SYBR® Gold SYBR® Green, SYBR® Safe, SYPRO® Red, SYPRO® Ruby, or Fluorescein. As new dyes are released we work to optimise their use with the VWR® Basic system, so please ask your local VWR contact for updates.
VWR® Basic is also suitable for viewing and capturing images from agar plates of dark, light, or two colour colonies, cells in flasks, autoradiographs, DNA, RNA or protein on membranes, spot and slot blots of DNA, RNA or protein, cells or solutions in microtitre plates and DNA or protein macroarrays.
