Benchtop UV Transilluminators

UVP offers a wide range of filter sizes and single or multiple UV wavelength transilluminators in a compact, benchtop size. UVP's patented 3UV™ Benchtop Transilluminator (main picture) provides the selection of longwave, midrange and shortwave in one compact unit.

3 UV Transilluminator


  • Gel Electrophoresis
  • DNA Fluorescence
  • Protein Fluorescence


Main Features

  • Increased ultraviolet output and intensity
  • No light flicker
  • Wider intensity range with variable selection (select models)
  • Fast lamp start up
  • Universal power supply
  • Reduced electrical consumption
  • Longer tube life
  • Lighter weight
  • Improved gel visualization and gel documentation

Transilluminator Features:

  • UVP's patented 3UV Benchtop Transilluminator provides the selection of 365nm, 302nm and 254nm in one compact unit
  • 2UV models offer 302nm and 365nm UV in one model
  • Easily view gels under 365nm longwave UV for extended periods of time avoiding photonicking damage. Researchers can use the 302nm midrange to increase the fluorescence for photodocumentation. Shortwave 254nm UV is used to irradiate samples
  • All Benchtop Transilluminator models are compact, lightweight units
  • These 8-watt models provide a low cost alternative to the High Performance UV Transilluminators
  • A variety of filter area work surface sizes are available
  • Hinged, clear UV blocking cover, included with each transilluminator, is adjustable for access to the filter surface
WARNING: Transilluminators are powerful sources of ultraviolet radiation which can cause serious damage to unprotected eyes and skin. Read the ultraviolet Caution Information before operating any transilluminators.
