Several lines of evidence suggest, however, that the retention of the tourniquet for more than one to two minutes is a significant cause of haemoconcentration, which may also spuriously increase the concentration of several analytes (36,37), but which can be avoided by using transilluminator devices (38).
After development, the gels were evaluated using a transilluminator, and the presence or absence of bands and the relative intensity of the different isoforms for each sample was determined.
This, combined with an integral slide-out UV transilluminator, and optional blue epi-illumination module and white light table, make the system suitable for documentation and analysis of almost all fluorescent and colorimetric gels.
