FAS V Gel Documentation System

Very sensitive CCD-Sensor

The FastGene® FAS-V has a big CCD-Sensor, made in Japan, with a diameter of 1/1.8“. The pixel size of 4.4 µm allows the detection of lowest light signal. Images can be recorded in the common TIFF and JPEG as well as in BMP and PNG format. The files can be stored in the 16 GB internal SSD storage or on a USB-stick.

The exposure time of the sensor can be set from 0.001 sec up to 30 sec. The very short exposure guarantees that even the brightest DNA band will be still within the dynamic range. Exposing the sensor for up to 30 sec will enable the detection even of the faintest bands.

 DNA Detection and Documentation with red or green DNA dyes

The FastGene® Blue/Green LED technology enables the detection of red dyes, such as Ethidium Bromide and of our next generation green dyes Midori Green. Both dyes can be visualized using the amber filter on top of the unit.

Unique LED Technology

Very easy to handle and perfect results out of the box

Get great results right after you start. The simplicity of the system guarantees a quick learning process. Images are saved in the established jpeg and tiff format format, allowing you to use any imaging program to review your image. Additionally, the images can be saved in PNG and BMP format as well.

Robust and Durable

The FastGene® FAS-V Gel documentation System is very robust due to its metal body and high quality components.

Touchscreen Operation

The FastGene® FAS-V is controlled by a 10.4″ touchscreen display:

  • All three light sources can be activated and deactivated by the touchscreen.
  • The exposure time and Gain can be adjusted slide function or by directly adding the desired value.
  • Capturing the image can be achieved easily by pressing capture

The FastGene® FAS-V will not only take 1 picture but 6 simultaneously using different exposure times. The user can then decide which one to use.

The chosen image is then saved in JPEG, TIFF, BMP or PNG-format (BMP is selected in the image)
