The activity was analysed by a ultraviolet transilluminator (Bio-Rad Chemidoc XRS System; Segratc, Milan, Italy).
After PCR, 5 [micro]l of PCR products were subjected to 1% agarose gel electrophoresis and visualized with ethidium bromide under a transilluminator.
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).
5% agarose gel in 50X TAE (Tris-acetate-EDTA) buffer stained with ethidium bromide and gels were imaged in GeneSnap (a Syngene Bioimaging System, Syngene) with UV transilluminator at a wavelength of 302 nm [7].

Separation of DNA was performed at 100 V for gels of 150 ml, respectively, after completing electrophoresis the gel was viewed under UV light on a UV Transilluminator TFP-M \ WL (Vilber lourmat, France) and photographed with Electrophoresis results registration system Gel Imager GI-2 (Helicon, Japan).
DNA was stained with aqueous solution of EtBr, visualized and photographed under a UV transilluminator.
The gels were then visualized and photographed using an ultraviolet light transilluminator.
