Headquarters: UVP, Inc.
Operations: Ultra-Violet Products Limited
Since 1932, UVP has continually pioneered the design and production of ultraviolet products for scientific, industrial and educational applications.
UVP began manufacturing ultraviolet lamps for mineral fluorescence and over the years product development has expanded into various types of ultraviolet lamps and equipment. UVPs focus is also on the development of scientific imaging gel documentation products.

Photonic Science Ltd
|Storage phosphor Imaging Systems.||
company manufactures complete storage phosphor imaging systems. The PhosphorImager®
system is reported sensitive to 14C, 3H, 125I, 131I,
32P, 33P, 35S and other radioisotopes. Image plate
spatial resolution is reported to cope with closely-spaced bands (as in DNA sequencing
els). Exposure times are one-tenth conventional x-ray film. Applications include:The
company's Storm product scans storage phosphor screens, fluorescent gels and
chemifluorescent blots (image area 35 x 43 cm).
The BioRad GS-505 phosphor plate imager can be used for radioactive and chemiluminescent gels and gel blots. It has a broad linear dynamic range (1 to 105) set against a limited range of wavelengths. It accepts small format (20 x 25cm screens. The high spacial resolution permits separation of closely-spaced bands. Suitable platforms are: Power Macintosh, Macintosh and Windows 3.1/Windows 95.
The Bio-Rad GS-690 is an 10-bit imaging densitometer (24dpi -800dpi) which permits control over resolution and image size. The Bio-Rad scanner is a slightly modified Agfa standard scanner. Preview scans 24dpi can be made rapidly and regions of interest selected with a mouse. A sealed platten permits wet gels to be measured safely. The unit is therefore ideal for 1D and 2D gels, autoradiograms, slot and dot blots and slides or photographs.
The Bio-Rad Gel Doc 1000 system provides a means of imaging and quantitating fluorescently stained including ethidium bromide, SYBR Green I/II and SYPRO Orange. Many of the components are surprisingly similar to those supplied by UVP.
NOTE: Phoretix software provides a much more powerful and accurate analysis system than the software that is currently supplied with the Bio-Rad equipment. Bio-Rad customers would benefit from having Phoretix software.
