Get great signal with red or green DNA dyes

The new LED technology enables the detection of DNA from red as well as green DNA dyes. Below are images taken with the FastGene® Blue/Green LED GelPic Box. For comparison reasons, the 1.5% agarose gels made with TAE Buffer were stained with Ethidium Bromide or with Midori Green Advance recommended concentrations and loaded with 5 µl DNA Ladder. Additionally, the 5 µl DNA ladder was stained using Midori Green Direct and added to an unstained gel:

Ethidium bromide

Connection of the FastGene® Blue/Green GelPic LED Box (GP-04LED) to a computer

On a sticker of the B/G GelPic Box it is said to remove the USB-Stick prior to turning on. Is this necessary just at turning on or every time you wake up the machine.

The booting sequence recognize the USB-stick while loading the system. Depending on how it recognizes the USB stick it could come to a freezing of the booting process. To avoid this, we recommend to remove any usb stick of the unit until it is booted. Afterwards the recognition should not fail. It is not a corruption of the USB port but a safe method to avoid the process I described above.

It is necessary every time you boot the system not when you wake it up from sleeping mode.


Can the system be connected to the computer directly?

No, GP-04LED works with an USB stick. But you can connect an PC via an USB-Switch. There is an Technical Note available.


Can the system be connected to a printer?

Yes, to the P95DE and the P95DW


What are the requirements for the monitor to be associated with a BG LED GelPic Box via the VGA plug?

The native resolution of the box is 800*600 4:3 ratio. The size of the monitor is not relevant. We recommend the following monitor:

Die GelPic Box wird von uns seit etwa vier Monaten als Hauptgerät für die Detektion von DNA-Banden in Agarose-Gelen verwendet. Die Box punktet trotz der leichten Bedienbarkeit und der kompakten Bauweise mit hochqualitativen Bildern. Um den USB-Speicher im Netzwerk zugänglich zu machen, benutzen wir einen USB-Switch, der per Knopfdruck den Stick mit einem benachbarten PC verbindet. Wir sind sehr zufrieden mit der blau-grünen LED-Technik und haben unsere gesamten UV-Geräte im Sinne des Proben- und Arbeitsschutzes ersetzt.

Translation by Nippon Genetics:

We use the GelPic Box already four months as the main device for the detection of DNA bands in agarose gels. The GelPic Box have a compact design, is easy to use and make images with a high quality. In order to make the USB memory accessible in the network, we use a USB switch that connects the stick to a neighboring PC. We are very satisfied with the blue-green LED technology and have replaced our entire UV devices to protect our samples and colleagues.

We use the box in our student courses. Easy handling, minimum space requirement and fast USB storage make it a very useful tool. Image quality is good for Midori/EtBr stained gels as well as for acrylamide gels and blots.

Wir verwenden die Blau/Grün GelPic LED Box seit einem halben Jahr und sind bisher sehr zufrieden. Unsere Hauptanwendung ist die Untersuchung von DNA in Agarosegelen (ohne Ethidiumbromid), was die Box sehr gut meistert. Die Box ist klein, einfach zu handhaben, und fertigt, ohne Verwendung von schädlicher UV-Strahlung, Bilder guter Qualität an.

Translated by Nippon Genetics:

We use the Blue/Green GelPic LED Box for half a year and are so far very satisfied. Our main application is the study of DNA in agarose gels (without ethidium bromide), which is performed very well by the box. The box is small, easy to handle and produces high quality images without using harmful UV radiation.

Wir benutzen die Box schon seit einem Jahr und sind absolut zufrieden mit der sehr leichten Bedienbarkeit und der Performance. Die Empfindlichkeit bei Ethidiumbromid-gefärbten DNA-Agarosegelen steht der mit einem herkömmlichen UV-Tisch in nichts nach. Die Box ist extrem kompakt und ganz leicht zu transportieren. Wir benutzen sie täglich sowohl im Praktikum mit den Studierenden (hier ist es besonders günstig, dass man ohne schädigende UV.Strahlung arbeiten und die Daten direkt auf einem USB-Stick abspeichern kann) als auch im Laboralltag. Wir haben alle alten UV-Tische "ausgemustert" und durch FastGene LED-Boxen ersetzt. Absolut empfehlenswert!

Translated by Nippon Genetics:

We use the Blue/Green GelPic LED Box since one year and are totally satisfied with the very easy handling and the performance. The sensitivity of DNA agarose gels stained with ethidium bromide is as great as with a common UV table. The box is extremely compact and very easy to transport. We use it every day in student courses (at this point it is in particular advantageous that it is possible to work without harmful UV radiation and that the data can be directly saved on a USB stick) as well as in daily laboratory work. We replaced all old UV tables by FastGene LED boxes. Absolutely recommended!
