UV PCR Systems


Main Features

UV PCR hoods use shortwave ultraviolet to control PCR contamination. HEPA/UV PCR systems additionally use a three-stage filter system.

  • Three-stage filter system:
    • Pre-filter captures large dust particles
    • Carbon filter (activated charcoal) eliminates gases, odor, smoke and also reduces ozone to improve microarray data quality
    • HEPA (high efficiency energy particulate) filter blocks particles down to 0.3 microns
  • Three UV (UV3) sources:
    • Filter area
    • Chamber work area
    • UV/air recirculator
  • A 30-minute timer sets shortwave UV exposure to decontaminate apparatus and work chamber for specific times
  • Antimicrobial coated metal surfaces reduce bacterial growth
  • A safety shut-off switch automatically turns the ultraviolet light off when the door is open
  • Place large instruments on the work area or tubes, flasks and pipettes on the two removable shelves
  • Built-in power outlets allow operation of equipment for use in PCR applications
  • Makrolon® panels are specially formulated to block UV wavelengths below 400nm
