Compact and easy to use, the GelDoc Go Imaging System can fit on virtually any benchtop. With a large UV transilluminator, this gel imager offers the flexibility to image many different types of gels of varying sizes. With just three clicks to capture, the onboard Image Lab Touch Software is as easy to use as your smartphone.

This GelDoc Go Imaging System includes a UV tray for stain free protein gels, ethidium bromide gel staining, and fluorescence imaging. A white tray (for Coomassie, copper, silver, and zinc stains) and a blue tray (for nucleic acid applications that use SYBR stains) are available as optional accessories.
