UV PCR Systems

UV PCR Equipment brings together UV irradiation and antimicrobial metal surfaces to create a dual-attack environment against PCR contamination. Choose from cabinet or workstation. The cabinet features a smaller work area than the workstation.

UV PCR Systems


  • PCR Preparation and Amplification
  • Microbial research



Main Features

  • Control potential PCR contamination with the built-in UV for inactivation of DNA between experiments
  • The 254nm shortwave UV source positioned as overhead UV; select models include UV air recirculator to circulate the UV decontaminated air
  • UV is controlled with a key switch and 30-minute timer to decontaminate apparatus and chamber with the shortwave UV
  • The shortwave ultraviolet irradiation can be used as a standard laboratory practice to reduce surface and airborne contaminants in the chamber
  • A safety shut-off switch automatically turns the ultraviolet light off when the door is open
  • Antimicrobial coated metal surfaces reduce bacterial growth
  • The workstation is designed for placement of large instruments on the work area or tubes, flasks and pipettes on the two removable shelves
  • The built-in power outlets allow operation of equipment for use in PCR applications
  • Makrolon® panels are specially formulated to block UV wavelengths below 400nm
