For PCR procedures that need protection from contamination; UV sterilisation of the working environment, with additional down flow sterile air protecting against subsequent contamination.
UV is effectively utilised in this cabinet, powerful UV tube lights are combined with carefully located optical reflectors to ensure uniform intensity distribution of the UV radiation throughout the cabinet. Downflow clean air protects against contamination by bathing the PCR apparatus in sterile air and limiting risk of contamination from the operator’s arms, or from any equipment bought into the otherwise sterile environment. A positive pressure ensures that there is no ingress of airborne contaminants from the surrounding laboratory environment. Acrylic windows offer exceptionally clear all round vision and do not allow transmission of UV.
The control system allows the choice of the timed UV exposure from 5 to 30 minutes.
