The SmartDoc system is ideal for quickly obtaining quality images of your gels for your records or anaylsis. Most gel imaging systems cost thousands of dollars as they include a high resolution camera, color display, complicated control panel, computer and more. The SmartDoc uses the camera and computer that we already have...our smart phone.

To use the SmartDoc, simply place the enclosure over your gel and transilluminator. Lay your smart phone or tablet onto the non-slip, rubber pad, and align the camera lens over the filter. Raising and lowering the platform allows optimization of focus and image size. Filters are available for compatibility with multiple light sources and dyes.

The Blue Light model includes high intensity blue LEDs to excite green dyes. This eliminates the need for hazardous and DNA-damaging UV light.

Images can be previewed on the device's display before capturing the picture. Images are easily shared, printed or transferred via text message, email or cloud sharing apps. Gel analysis software, such as the freeware found at, can be used to analyze the image.
