Multi-featured equipment for eliminating PCR contamination! Two HEPA/UV PCR models now available:NEWsmaller HEPA/UV PCR Cabinet and larger HEPA/UV PCR Workstation
PCR equipment brings together UV irradiation and antimicrobial stainless steel to create a dual-attack environment against PCR contamination. HEPA/UV PCR models feature a four-stage filter assembly plus to UV to provide eliminate contamination.
Filtered and sterilized air circulates from the UV/HEPA system into the PCR chamber via positive pressure laminar airflow with high/low settings. Control potential PCR contamination with built-in UV for inactivation of DNA between experiments. Shortwave UV can be used as a standard laboratory practice to reduce surface and airborne contaminants in the chamber.
Four stage filter system:
Pre-filter captures large dust particles
Carbon filter (activated charcoal) eliminates gases, odor, smoke and also reduces ozone to improve microarray data quality
HEPA (high efficienty energy particulate) filter blocks particles down to 0.3 microns
Zerozone catalyst grid removes ozone
Three UV (UV3) sources:
Chamber work area
A 30-minute timer sets shortwave UV exposure to decontaminate apparatus and work chamber for specific times
