Bio-1000F is an innovative, user-friendly, and cost-effective device that integrates image capture, gel preview, and gel extraction essential for routine nucleic acid gel electrophoresis. With the combination of high-sensitivity CCD system and Blue-LED illuminators, Bio-1000F is compatible with all EtBr-alternative fluorescent stains and provides the publication-quality image up to 0.008 ng/μl, significantly enhancing the fluorescent signal expression over other gel documentation systems dependent on UV and Blue-LED light sources.
Incorporating a removable filter plate and an intuitive MiBioFluo software interface, users can visualize banding patterns and conduct gel extraction directly on Bio-1000F for more convenient operation without movement between trans-illuminator and gel imager. The compact design especially enables Bio-1000F fit in crowded laboratory space.
Bio-1000F features an integrated, environmentally friendly, and ultra-sensitive gel imager for researchers, dedicated to improving laboratory safety and gel electrophoresis process efficiency.

Patented Design with Advanced Image-Capture Skills
With a patented optical design, sensitive CCD, and flexible software, Bio-1000F is capable to capture faint fluorescence, which demonstrates more sensitivity and better performance than UV and Blue-LED-based gel imaging systems.

Exclusive EtBr-alternative stains for safety, ecology, and environment
Bio-1000F goes perfectly with global EtBr-alternative stain brands. The highest sensitivity of Bio-1000F can reach 0.008 ng / μl.

Bio-1000F goes perfectly with global EtBr-alternative stain brands. Here are test references experimented with by Microtek’s Bio Lab. Please download it as a guide.

Meets demands for trans-illuminating, imaging, and extraction
Bio-1000F provides trans-illumination, imaging, and gel extraction at one independent platform. Researchers and laboratory staff can carry out gel-electrophoresis preview, image recording, or gel extraction without transition between trans-illuminator and gel-document system.

Clear Banding Patterns and Convenient Gel-Extraction
The integrated filter plate and LED bar provide more convenience and stronger fluorescent signals.

Comprehensive Protection Ensures Safety
Equipped with a blue-LED and filter plate, Bio-1000F provides multi-level protection from direct damages to eyes and skins. Concerning the highly potential mutagenic combination of UV and EtBr, Bio-1000F especially paired with EtBr-alternative stains is safer and friendlier to both researchers and the environment.

Simple Software Brings Effective Results
MiBio Fluo is an image capturing software exclusively designed by Microtek for Microtek DNA gel scanners. With an intuitive and easy-to-use UI, users can be skillful with use of software in a short time without taking any special training.
