PCR UV³ HEPA Cabinet and Workstation

  • Contamination-free reaction setup
  • Efficient UV inactivation of DNA and RNA
  • 3-stage HEPA-Carbon filter
  • Antimicrobial surface coating
PCR UV hoods use shortwave ultraviolet to control unwanted transfer of nucleic acids. The systems combine UV irradiation and antimicrobial coated stainless steel and aluminum to create double protection against PCR contamination.

This creates an ideal environment for preparing PCR reactions by reducing sample contamination significantly by the built-in 254 nm UV tubes for inactivation of DNA / RNA between experiments.

PCR UV³ HEPA Cabinet and Workstation also include a three-stage filter module with built-in 254 nm shortwave UV: a pre-filter captures large particles, an activated carbon filter captures ozone and other gases, and a HEPA filter forms a barrier against dust and microorganisms down to 0.3 microns. The system circulates the filtered and decontaminated air into the PCR chamber. This positive pressure laminar flow can be set to high or low, and a honeycomb metal grid guarantees a stabilized air flow.

The stainless steel and aluminum surfaces are coated with an antimicrobial material that suppresses the growth of bacteria, molds and fungi and is stain- and fingerprint-resistant.

Two sizes are available: the workstation has a larger work area than the cabinet. They have enough room for instruments on the work area and up to four power outlets. The units have a timer to control the duration of UV decontamination of the chamber.
