Dolphin-1D software
Dolphin-1D is a powerful molecular image software package for use with the Wealtec Dolphin-series of image systems and scanners. Besides general image enhancements such as background subtraction and image filtering, all being easily traceble, Dolphin-1D has four major analysis functions; 1-D gel molecular weight/mass determination, microtiter plate analysis, spot density calculation and colony counting.
UV/White light converter plate
Place this converter plate on top of the UV transilluminator to convert from UV illumination to white light illumination for visible wavelength imaging without damaging target samples.
