This UV3 HEPA PCR workstationis designed for eliminating PCR contamination. This unit brings together UV irradiation and antimicrobial stainless steel to create a dual-attack environment against PCR contamination. HEPA/UV PCR systems additionally use a four-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, ZerOzone catalyst grid not only blocks Ozone but it also supplies a gentle airflow onto the sample work area. This airflow creates a working environment that blocks entry of unwanted contaminants on PCR samples. Three UV (UV3) sources - filter area, chamber work area, UV/air recirculator. A 30 min timer sets shortwave UV exposure to decontaminate apparatus and work chamber for specific times. Antimicrobial coated stainless steel reduces 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. Acrylic panels are specially formulated to block UV wavelengths below 400nm. Operational ratings - unit intended to be used indoors, altitude must not exceed 2000m, ambient temperature not to exceed 5 to 40°C (41 to 104°F), relative humidity not to exceed 80% for temperatures upto 31°C (88°F) decreasing linearly to 50% relative humidity at 40°C (104°F), main supply voltage fluctuations upto ±10% of the nominal voltage, pollution rating 2 or better for laboratory areas.
