Microprocessor-controlled UV sensor feedback system ensures maximum energy efficiency
- Available with interchangeable shortwave, midrange, and longwave tubes
- Preset and manual controls for UV or time exposure settings
- Small footprint saves valuable benchtop space
UV crosslinking procedure optimizes the use of the UV energy while ensuring that crosslinking is consistent. Internal UV sensor is calibrated with traceability to NIST (or NPL in UK and Europe) standards. Change the wavelength for different applications by changing the UV tube (order separately) and corresponding UV wavelength calibration sensor. Other features include preset or user-selected UV exposure and time, internal safety system with automatic shutoff, large LED that displays remaining time or energy, and a UV-blocking clear viewing window. The 115 VAC model are ETL/ETLc certified, and the 230 VAC model is CE certified.
Use shortwave (254 nm) for sterilization, uniform radiation for crosslinking DNA or RNA to membranes after Northern or Southern blots, dot blotting, and colony or plaque lifts. Other applications include nicking ethidium bromide stained DNA in agarose gels and gene mapping for creating cleavage-inhibiting thymine dimers. Use midrange (302 nm) for phototherapy, UV crosslinking and curing, and gradient sampling. Use longwave (365 nm) for UV curing, photochemistry, and immunology research.
