The transilluminator is a vital tool in the molecular diagnostic laboratory and other molecular biology disciplines. This device, also known as a light box, illuminates samples of agarose or acrylamide gels from below to reveal the presence and positions of stained DNA, RNA or protein fragments.

Ultraviolet (UV) light is the most common light source used by transilluminators, although different light ranges can also be used if samples are stained with specific fluorescent dyes. The transilluminator is key to many assay techniques, such as gel electrophoresis, western blotting and restriction analysis-all essential procedures in genetic research and disease investigation.
