UVITEC FireReader V10


UVITEC Ltd. is a manufacturer of molecular biology imaging systems from Cambridge, England. It has been established for over 22 years and has a record of selling its leading products, UV fluorescence, and colorimetry, and also chemiluminescence and epifluorescence, to more than 70 countries. No wonder this company is a world-renowned one because its products have been used by more than 80,000 scientists who work at research centers and major scientific institutes around the world.

The UVITEC molecular biology imaging systems use advanced technologies that can provide solutions to a variety of complex or demanding applications such as Chemiluminescence and Spectral Fluorescence. With a high level of sensitivity and its robustness, UVITEC products are truly reliable. Equipped with free license software that is very user-friendly, the workflow becomes smoother and it can also be used by anyone, without any user restrictions.

UVITEC Uvidoc Firereader V10 is an instrument to do the gel documentation using a high level of sensitivity so that it can ease researchers in operating it. And thanks to its ability to provide that high level of sensitivity and works automatically makes this instrument suitable to use in laboratories or other research sites that need smaller space.

UVITEC FireReader V10 can perform imaging or gel documentation comprehensively using 7 different lightings and can be used for many applications. Its sturdy design and 6-megapixel sensor make this instrument super ideal for publication-level images and research-level data because it can deliver up to 65,535 gray levels with a resolution of 10 megapixels and 16-bit imaging. Completed with its patented technology Uvipure which can be found in the transilluminator, it is very perfect for the safe-stained gel and can produce sharper, clearer images.

Just like UVITEC Uvidoc HD6, UVITEC FireReader V10 is also a gel documentation instrument that uses advanced technology. The difference is that UVITEC HD6 is able to stand on its own, while UVITEC FireReader V10 must use the computer to operate optimally. Another difference also lies in the illumination technology. The UVITEC Uvidoc HD6 only uses epi white whereas UVITEC FireReader V10 can use not only epi white but also epi blue LED and optional epi-UV. The quality of its Epi-blue LED also can be increased to calculate quantification/normalization, molecular weight, and distance.

The UVITEC FireReader V10 is also known as a multipurpose gel documentation system thanks to its ability to operate automatically in many applications. It is a practical, all-in-one instrument because it can cover all the stages of gel documentation process which includes acquisition, editing, up to direct analysis. It also provides “One Click”, “Live”, “3D-Live”, or “Preview” for an easier, more comfortable settings.

UVITEC FireReader V10 also comes with various features as follows:

  • There is no learning curve
  • Large 6-position filter wheel to get optimal results
  • Unlimited software users

Another advantage that can be obtained from this instrument is its practical yet sturdy design which makes it possible for users to carry it anywhere. It can also work for a long period of time. It is truly practical, strong, and can reduce noise to produce clearer images. Even its protocols can also be modified and adjusted based on your needs, or just simply use the standard acquisition protocol.

UVITEC FireReader V10 is suitable for operation in fluorescence applications such as DNA and RNA gels with fluorescent stains (Ethidium Bromide, GelRed, SYBR Safe & Green & Gold, Sypro Ruby, Emerald, and Midori Green), epifluorescences such as gels and spots with GFP, Cy2, Alexa 488, FITC, Atto 465, and DyLight 488), and visible imaging such as colorimetry and protein gel options (Coomassie Blue, Cooper, Silver-stained, Red Ponceau, Petri dish colonies, and colony counts). This instrument is also ideal for 1D quantification, normalization, automated molecule weight, and distance calculations analysis.
