Gel Documentation Systems

Gel documentation is a fundamental part of electrophoretic analysis. Cleaver Scientific provides a range of gel documentation systems suitable for both conventional ethidium bromide stained DNA, as well as modern ethidum bromide alternatives such as runSafe.

  • 8 Megapixel digital camera with improved high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and processor
  • Image visualised within a large 8″ TFT colour monitor
  • Light weight compact hood with easy access door and built-in inner lights
  • Safety switches disconnect the UV source when the easy access door is opened
  • Computer-free operation


Now upgraded to a new 18 megapixel digital camera with improved high-sensitivity sensor and the latest image processor to guarantee superb resolution, the MicroDOC is the researcher’s choice for a simple ultra-compact gel documentation system that meets constraints in both budget and space within the laboratory. A large 8″  TFT screen enables images, including agarose and fluorescent gels, colorimetric gels, autoradiography film and blotting membrane, to be captured in colour, clearly and easily. The system is computer-free and supplied with a 4GB storage card and 55mm ethidium bromide filter as standard, while an optional SYBR filter is also available. Files are saved onto the 4GB storage card in RAW, TIFF-RGB and JPEG formats and may be transferred to computer for analysis with the highly recommended TotalLab 1D software.
