The Labcaire PCR Prep Station provides a cost-effective means of preparing PCR and other samples without the risk of contamination.
The PCR Prep Station is a mini vertical laminar flow cabinet providing better than Class 100 clean air conditions at the work surface. To further reduce the risk of contamination, the PCR Prep Station has a built-in UV steriliser.
Between amplifications simply place all pipettes, tubes and flasks in the cabinet and press the UV switch. After five minutes, the UV light will automatically switch off and all potentially contaminating DNA and RNA will have been destroyed*.
The Class 100 clean air provides continual protection during the preparation of sample tubes, and the negative pressure filter seals eliminate the risk of leaks.
The compact design ensures that the PCR Prep Station takes up no more bench space than that normally used for PCR work, whilst the open sloped front gives unhindered access for sample preparation and the attachable panel prevents external UV emmission during sterilisation.
With the modern laboratory in mind, Labcaire engineers have developed a new fan design which reduces sound levels to just 53dB.
