The microDOC is the researcher’s choice for a simple ultra-compact gel documentation system that meets constraints in both budget and space within the laboratory. A large 8” TFT screen enables images to be captured in colour, clearly and easily. The system is computer-free and supplied with a 2MB storage card and 58mm ethidium bromide filter as standard, while an optional SYBR filter is also available. Files are saved in RAW, TIFF-RGB or JPEG formats for analysis with the TotalLab™ 1D software.

The microDOC BASIC is a simple low-cost system comprising a lift-off dark room hood and 14.7 megapixel digital camera, through which the gel is viewed directly. This system can be supplied with optional TotalLab 1D Analysis Software and any one of the 21 x 21 cm transilluminators available.
TotalLab™ 1D software
TotalLab™ 1D software is supplied only as part of a complete package with each of the microDOC and transilluminator options. Its main functions include: lane creation, background subtraction, band detection, profile deconvolution, and molecular size, pI and quantity calibration. More sophisticated TotalLab™ Quant and Phoretix standalone software options are available for 1D applications that require band matching.
