BW UV PCR Workstation

BW UV PCR Workstation for UV sterilization for the working area prior to undertaking procedures that need protection from contamination plus the UV PCR Workstation additionally 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.

When undertaking PCR reactions it is important to protect against contamination by rogue DNA. The cabinet, reagents and equipment must be thoroughly decontaminated prior to a PCR procedure. UV irradiation is an efficient steriliser, breaking down DNA sequences so that replication cannot occur in a subsequent amplification process. The necessary UV exposure times vary from as little as 5 minutes to a maximum of 30 minutes.

Features:

  • Doors sensors switch off UV lamps if door flap is opened, ensuring operator safety.
  • Acrylic protects the operator from beta emissions from commonly used ³²P labeled compounds.
  • Acrylic windows offer exceptionally clear all round vision and additionally do not allow transmission of UV.
  • HEPA filtration system that delivers air to Class 100 quality.
  • Auto speed increase on door opening maintains are velocity speed to 0.45m/s at the workstation front (this feature is special to Bigneat Hoods).
  • Electronic filter saturation indicator and fan noise level better the 50 d(B)a.
  • Powerful UV tube lights are combined with carefully located optical reflectors to ensure uniform intensity distribution of the UV radiation throughout the hood. 
  • Control system allows the choice of timed UV exposure from 5-30 minutes.
  • Hood is supplied with handy corner shelves, which do not hinder the working area. Door flaps offer excellent access to the hood interior. 
  • Fluorescent lights, operated from an external switch, illuminate hoodinterior.
  • Side panels include ports for cable access.
