WESTBURY, N.Y., Oct. 6, 2010 — The Spectroline Q-Series ultraviolet magnifier lamps manufactured by Spectronics Corp. facilitate laboratory analysis. Twelve models with different combinations of long-wave UV, short-wave UV and white light enable lab technicians to select the right lamp for their particular application, whether for bacterial identification, specimen staining, mutation studies, microbiology, fungus culture or any other process. Q-Series lamps come with one, two or four long-wave UV tubes, and most models also feature either white-light or short-wave UV tubes. The high-resolution magnifier lens provides three power magnifications at a 20-cm focal length, rendering even minute traces of fluorescent material highly visible. The lamps are constructed with a high-impact polycarbonate housing enclosing a specular aluminum reflector, which ensures maximum irradiance. A rugged handle is attached to the housing by a friction-lock swivel joint for maximum comfort and flexibility. A pedestal stand is available as an accessory for hands-free operation. Several models offer a spring-balanced flexible arm that extends 91 cm and swings in a 360º arc. A choice of three mounting brackets (wall, bench or table mount) is available for the flexible arm model.
