These UV transmitting work surfaces offer transilluminator users vital protection for the most sensitive and expensive part of their instrument – the filter glass.


Filter glass is necessary to block out the visible light emitted by UV tubes, and normally lasts thousands of hours. However, even the most careful users will nick and scratch the glass when working with gels on its surface. Such scratches can interfere with gel pictures and decrease the usefulness of the unit, eventually requiring expensive replacement of the filter glass.


These UV transmitting work surfaces are the ideal solution to this problem. Gels can be prepared and cut on the transilluminator without fear of scratching the glass. The economically priced work surface can be replaced whenever it gets too scratched for use. It comes in two sizes to fit any brand of transilluminator: standard size 34.3 x 46.4 cm (13.5 x 18.25 in) and mid-size 22.2 x 35.6 cm (8.75 x 14 in).
