UV light is dangerous and destructive. Blue LEDs have poor sensitivity to many dyes.
With the FAS-X, it is time to say goodbye to these problems! Our unique Blue/Green LED technology protects the user and will boost your results with incredible sensitivity.
Unlock the potential of imaging flexibility.
The powerful Blue/Green LED technology of the FAS-X shows a remarkable performance with the full spectrum of DNA or protein fluorescent dyes.

Take a look at the convenient combination of (1) a large high-resolution touchscreen and (2) a very easy to use software.
FastGene® FAS-X is our new gel documentation system. It combines a modern design with very user-friendly software. The major innovation is the implementation of the Blue/Green LED technology. With this safe light source, any commercially available DNA dye can be detected without the harmful UV light. It is the next generation of visible light gel documentation system and, instead of blue light, uses a spectrum of light in the blue-green spectrum. FAS-X is a stand-alone system manufactured in Germany.
The exterior look of the FAS-X was completely redesigned. The high-quality white and modern surface gives it an elegant look in the laboratory. We are proud that our new stand-alone device is manufactured and assembled in Germany.
The compact system is equipped with a high-resolution 13″ full HD touchscreen. The device is very easy to operate via the display. The Blue/Green transilluminator is integrated into a push-to-open loading drawer to ensure absolute darkness and the best image quality without light contamination. The huge Blue/Green illumination area (21 cm x 26 cm) fits any gel size.
The software has been designed to make operating the device and communicating with the camera as easy as possible. The user-friendly interface is integrated into the touchscreen and allows recording the best gel formations with a few simple clicks. The software also includes a powerful editing function.
The built-in active cooling system allows to control the temperature in the FAS-X and to avoid overheating of the transilluminator. With only 7 cm, the Blue/Green transilluminator is extremely thin and weighs less than in previous models.
