Spectrolinker™ UV CrosslinkersBy Spectronics Corporation
Use this microprocessor-controlled UV crosslinker for very fast (under 30 seconds) crosslinking of DNA and RNA to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes after blotting procedures as well as for nicking ethidium bromide stained DNA in agarose gels, UV-intensity monitoring, gene mapping and other UV-dosage applications, including UV sterilization. Fully programmable operation allows control of automatic optimal crosslink (120mJ/cm2), energy (0-999,900 µJ/cm2), time (0 seconds to 2-3/4 hours) and intensity readout. Settings entered with the color coded key pad are "remembered," allowing one-button operation of repeated tasks. A large LED display guides users with help messages and settings. Users are protected from accidental UV exposure even if door is opened during operation.
Features include NIST traceability of accuracy, full-range display resolution accurate to ±5µW/cm2, EMI/RFI protection and state-of-the-art photo sensor. Both models are constructed of anodized aluminum.
The XL-1000 model uses five 8-watt 254nm tubes. Housing dimensions (W x L x H): 19-1/2" x 10-1/2" x 9," interior dimensions: 13-1/2" x 7" x 7-1/2."
The XL-1500 uses six 15-watt 254nm tubes. Its housing dimensions (W x L x H): 24" x 10-1/2" x 14," interior dimensions: 18-1/3" x 6-1/4" x 12-1/2."
In both models, 312nm and 365nm tubes are optional. 115V, 60Hz.
