The FastGene® FAS-DIGI Compact is made made for ultra safe and ultra sensitive DNA/RNA detection − without using UV-light. The intuitive and easy handling creates perfect gel images. It consist of two main parts, the transilluminator and the dark box with a high-quality camera.
Compact instrument − Fits in all labs
With a compact dark box body made of highest quality coated aluminium, the stand alone device has been designed for labs that need a powerful gel documentation system but only have limited benchtop space.
Large illumination area − Comfortable use with large and multiple gels
The FAS-DIGI Compact comes with a huge Blue/Green LED transilluminator (21 cm x 26 cm) giving a large illuminiation area for various gel sizes.

Blue/Green LED technology (instead of UV-light) − Valuable DNA, eyes and skin are protected
Using UV-light transilluminators affects you and your sample. Exposing yourself to the dangerous light source can harm your eyes and skin and damage your DNA sample for further downstream applications.
This is why the FastGene® FAS-DIGI Compact includes a large transilluminator with Blue/Green LED technology. Blue/Green LEDs protect your sample and yourself from harmful UV-light exposure. Designed for guaranteed safe and easy handling.

High standard camera − Great recognition and separation of even faint bands
Even faint bands can be detected with the high standard 24 MPixel Canon EOS DSLR camera. You can extract small gel image areas in very high resolution and best quality.
The camera has a rotable and swiveling touch-screen display for very comfortable usage.
Amber Filter viewing window − Easy handling and safe cutting of gel bands
The inbuilt Amber Filter viewing window allows you to look at your illuminated gel and easily check and cut out the desired DNA bands for further applications.
Simple upgrade to FAS-DIGI PRO − Flexibility to upgrade the system for even more comfort
The FastGene® FAS-DIGI Compact is the entry-model gel imaging system in the high-end gel imaging segment. It is perfect for labs with smaller budgets but high quality standards.
It gives you high-quality images to a very fair price.
The FastGene® FAS-DIGI Compact is the brand new smaller sister model of the popular FastGene® FAS-DIGI PRO.
Both imaging systems use the same Blue/Green LED transilluminator and the same camera. This is why the upgrade to FAS-DIGI PRO can easily be performed by simply replacing the FAS-DIGI Compact dark box with the FAS-DIGI PRO dark box.
Advantages of the FAS-DIGI PRO dark box:
- Power supply for transilluminator and camera
- Intuitive and easy-to use imaging software included
- Network compatibilit
- Additional white LED table for protein detection included
