Ultraviolet light is considered an ancillary disinfectant to chemical disinfectants in the healthcare environment.
- Perfect for delivering the recommended >1 J/cm² germicidal UV dose for surface disinfection
- Crosslinking of DNA and RNA to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes
- Microprocessor control provides precise UV dose control
- Irradiation can be defined as energy (Joules/cm²) or time (seconds)
- Bulbs: 8 W (6)
The high-precision CL-3000 crosslinker is capable of producing a cumulative dosage of 1 J/cm², this is considered well beyond the requirement needed for disinfection. The CL-3000 provides nearuniform UVC light with a ~10% coefficient of variation and less than 2 mJ/cm² difference between the highest and lowest reading. Most importantly, the CL-3000 has real-time monitoring of UVC dosage to assure reproducible dosing irrespective of space and time.
The UVP crosslinker is a microprocessor controlled UV irradiation system dedicated to nucleic acid linking to membranes for southern, northern, dot and slot blot applications. It can also be used for UV disinfection and for elimination of PCR contaminations.
The programmable microprocessor constantly monitors the UV light emission. Irradiation stops exactly when the programmed energy is achieved. Thus, the effect of decreasing UV intensity due to bulb aging is compensated for.
The UVP crosslinker combines the latest UV technology with high quality manufacturing: aluminum UV exposure chamber, protective quartz disk on the UV sensor cell, and a highly resistant and easy-to-clean keypad and housing.
The large display provides a series of predefined methods, making the UVP crosslinker an easy to use yet powerful instrument for immobilization of nucleic acids to membranes. The programmed data are shown on the LED display.
