Pearl Biotech Open Gel (Un)Box(ing)

Just received our gel box in the mail today.  Pearl has added a great tweak to the standard gel box with an illuminator that fits snuggly under the box.  The illuminator apparently does a good job of exciting SYBR Safe DNA stain so you can watch your DNA running in real time.  The design is open sourced and it would be great to see someone design a camera mount for the gel box to make a cheap gel imager.   All in all, the box looks solidly built and it’s exciting to see people innovating on tools for biological engineering.  Looking forward to seeing more from Pearl in the future.
