‘We have been using the FastGene FAS-Digi PRO for some time now and are very satisfied with the user-friendly handling of the software and the quality of the recordings.’

The FastGene® FAS-Digi PRO is our newest imaging system for the detection of DNA and RNA in agarose gels.
The FastGene® FAS-Digi PRO is a fully networkable Gel Doc System, which enables simple transfer of images when connected to an external PC.
The heart of the FAS-Digi PRO is the revolutionary Blue/Green LED technology.
The FAS-Digi PRO is composed of a strong Blue/Green LED transilluminator that emits visible light at a wavelength of 470 – 520 nm. In contrast to harmful UV light, no nucleic acids are damaged with Blue/Green LEDs. The Blue/Green LED technology enables the detection of all common green (e.g., MIDORIGreen, SYBRTM Green)), yellow (e.g., SYBRTM Safe) and red (e.g., ethidium bromide or GelRedTM) DNA dyes.
The hood of the FAS-Digi PRO can be easily removed. This allows a very easy excision of DNA bands on the huge Blue/Green LED illuminated work surface of 21 cm x 26 cm. A superb uniform transillumination is guaranteed by 12 LED arrays at each side.
The detection of protein is possible due to the additionally included white LED table which comes with an integrated battery.
The very light-sensitive camera ‘Canon EOS 200D’ has a very large APS-C CMOS sensor.
The camera is connected directly to the power supply system of the FAS-Digi PRO and is thus constantly supplied with power.
The FAS-Digi PRO is delivered together with the intuitive NIPPON Genetics Camera Studio software. This software enables the optimization of all important camera settings (aperture, exposure time, zoom and focus) in real time.

Experiences of customers after testing a free rental FastGene FAS-Digi PRO
|It's easy because I don’t need to be careful when cutting out.|
|It makes it much easier to save data because I used to scan the photograph or printout with a scanner and turn it into a PDF file.|
|I closed a room window when cutting out. But it is no risk because it can be done with goggles or naked eyes.|
|I put a thermal paper on my notebook. But I can change to the data management.|
|It was great. Good compatibility with that reagent (MGX) and good sensitivity. I could use this softwear without a manual.|
|I don’t need to be careful, because this is not UV light.|
|This is easy to operate also image is beautiful.|
|I think UV-free and EtBr -free is better, If I think for safety and future trends.|
