Q:

What wavelength will excite the stain in the FlashGel™ Cassettes? Can I use a UV transilluminator?

A:
The FlashGel™ Dock has a blue light transilluminator that excites the fluorescent dye at 450 nm. The stain has a secondary excitation peak in the UV range (i.e., 302 nm and 312 nm). Therefore, the bands can also be detected on a UV transilluminator.
