The Revolution for Nucleic Acid Gel Documentation – ‘Made in Germany’
The FastGene® FAS-DIGI PRO is our newest imaging system for the detection of DNA and RNA in agarose gels.
The unique Blue/Green LED technology, together with a very easy to use software and a top camera, enables agarose gel documentation of highest quality.
The FastGene® FAS-DIGI PRO is a fully networkable Gel Doc System, which enables simple transfer of images when connected to an external PC.
Blue/Green LED Technology – for a safe detection of DNA and RNA
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 Canon camera 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 imaging software
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.
