Transilluminators work by generating ultraviolet light, which excites fluorophores in genetic samples. A fluorophore is a molecule that can re-emit light when excited by another light. In genetics, fluorescent dyes are used that bind to DNA or RNA, becoming fluorophores. When the sample with these dyes is exposed to the UV transilluminator, the fluorophores absorb this light and emit another visible light. The result is a luminous image, observable with the human eye or through a digital camera, of our target genetic material.
