Gel documentation and gel imaging systems are workhorses of busy research and clinical laboratories. These systems have advanced since the early days of a cloth covered stand, camera and UV box, and progressed in terms of functionality, reliability, ease of use and affordability. Gels can be used to quantitatively and qualitatively characterize proteins, DNA, RNA and small molecules from applications such as PCR, sequencing, and separation. When purchasing a new system, consider ease of use functions like touch screens, wireless connectivity and the ability to save data in different formats. Systems are available now that can automatically determine exposure time, light settings, filter settings, and camera settings. Investigate available technical support and service contracts if downtime is an issue for your laboratory. It is possible to find a versatile lab tool that is sensitive, simple to use and eliminates all the guesswork of older technology.
