Global Market for Global Transilluminators to Offer Lucrative Growth Prospects for Manufacturers BY 2018 – 2028
Ultraviolet transilluminators facilitate the optimum visibility of various electrophoresis gels, such as polyacrylamide and agarose gels. They help visualise the targeted deoxyribonucleic acids and proteins in study samples and specimens under a microscope. Ultraviolet transilluminators work by emitting high-intensity ultraviolet radiation that passes through the viewing surface. Transilluminators are most frequently used in life science laboratories that are focused on microbiological research and development. Currently, manufacturers are offering stainless steel filter framed transilluminators that are scratch-proof and chemical resistant. These upgraded solutions are targeted towards the biochemical industry.
