Three sizes offer plenty of workspace for reaction supplies and thermal cycler.

  • UV irradiation of working area prior to use blocks replication of contaminating DNA sequences by causing adjacent pyrimidines to undergo dimerization
  • Protects against cross- or airborne contamination by limiting exposure of experimental setup to open lab environment

  • Dual UV bulbs deliver twice the UV intensity compared to single bulbs, helping irradiate areas that might otherwise be inaccessible; useful when workstation is used to decontaminate apparatus and reagents
  • Access doors close to prevent contamination, then slide into storage compartment in base during use
  • Stainless-steel ceiling increases UV dose at workstation surface; results in a 10% increase in UV dose with single bulb and 20% with dual UV bulb
  • Hinged-glass fascia allows easy access to interior workspace for cleaning and placement of large instruments
  • Dual fluorescent lamps ensure excellent workspace visibility
  • 254mm UV lamp with convenient switch for timed decontamination of workspace
