These UV Sterilisation Cabinets provide a convenient area for setting up PCR reactions in a nucleic acid free environment thus limiting PCR reaction contamination.
Acting effectively as a low cost alternative to a clean room, the powerful UV lights on each cabinet denatures nucleic acids in 5 to 30 minutes making them unsuitable for amplification. The cabinets incorporate safety features to prevent user-exposure to UV light.
The UV lights are timer controlled and there are safety switches on the cabinet doors which power off the UV lights when opened. The units’ white light provide excellent visibility when working within the cabinet.
Constructed from 10mm acrylic, the cabinets also act as efficient shields from beta radioactive emissions and can therefore be safely used with isotopes such as ³²P.
Two models are available, Maxi as shown above, and a new Mini Cabinet for limited budget and bench space. An optional HEPA Filter extraction system is available, suitable for removal of VOC’s/Solvent fumes and particulate – please call.
Safety SpillTrays and Liners of size 68 x 54cm, provide convenient containment of spillage (not included with cabinet).
