Product Description

microDOC is a simple, inexpensive and ultra compact gel documentation system. It contains a digital camera with improved high-sensitivity CCD sensor and the latest image processor to guarantee superb resolution of 12.1 mega pixels*. For added convenience, limited space and budget requirements, microDOC can be used computer free. The image is viewed from a large 8″ TFT colour liquid crystal display. A variety of images can be captured in colour, clearly and easily, from agarose and other fluorescent gels, colorimetric gels, auto radiography film and blotting membranes. The system is fitted with a 55mm ethidium bromide filter and has a safety switch to turn off the UV Transilluminator when the door is opened. This also activates internal light for convenient gel manipulation. Files can be saved in a variety of formats (RAW, TIFF-RGB and JPEG) for later transfer to computer systems for storage and analysis with the highly recommended TotalLab™ 1D software.

The Mitsubishi P93 is a high speed, high resolution thermal printer that is perfectly suited to printing images directly from the microDOC. Connected to the microDOC by a BNC cable, the Mitsubishi P93 prints 325dpi images, up to 133 x 99mm in size.

Built-in Wi-Fi technology from the camera may be used within the microDOC camera to facilitate instantaneous wireless transfer of images to a computer or smart device – no cable connection required. Set-up requires a broadband internet connection and a DHCP-enabled wireless router. Minimum system requirements for software installation are Windows XP.
