The Monmouth Circulaire PCR Cabinets are mini vertical laminar flow cabinets that are designed for use during Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplifications to prevent cross contamination. The cabinets provide better than ISO Class 4 (Class 10) clean air conditions at the work surface. To further reduce the risk of contamination, both cabinets have a built in UV steriliser.
Between amplifications, simply place all pipettes, tubes and flasks in the cabinet, fit the lightweight, safety interlocked nightdoor and after 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes (operator programmable) the UV light will switch off and all potentially contaminating DNA will be destroyed.
Two versions are available. The PCR650 is fitted with a low airflow alarm and preset UV light countdown timers, whilst the PCR650E is fitted with an electronic LCD screen giving more user information such as UV countdown timer, hours run indicator and airflow status. Both cabinets however give the same high quality levels of cleanliness.
