WESTBURY, N.Y., July 20, 2011 — The Spectroline CL-150 Series UV workstations offered by Spectronics Corp. enable laboratory technicians to view, analyze and photograph fluorescent samples with both epi-illumination and transillumination light sources. A removable bottom panel allows either unit to be placed directly over the transilluminator. The 25-W white lightbulb in the cabinet provides visible illumination for easy sample preparation.
Researchers can use either the safety viewing eyepiece or substitute a snap-on camera adapter for photography. Simply placing the adapter onto the cabinet in place of the eyepiece produces high-quality digital images.
The spacious cabinet can accommodate large electrophoresis gels and up to four 20 × 20-cm thin-layer chromatography plates. It can be used with any one or two of 11 models of Spectroline X- and XX-series 15-W UV lamps, available separately. The CL-151 is identical to the CL-150 but is equipped with the XX-15NF lamp, which has separate 15-W long-wave (365 nm) and short-wave (254 nm) UV tubes.
Felt curtains allow easy access to the cabinet interior while blocking out external light. The housing measures 44.5 × 51.4 × 24.8 cm. Both cabinets are made of rugged aluminum with a chemical-resistant polyurethane coating.
