  • Spectrolinker for Cross-Linking
Aug 2011
Spectronics Corp., SpectrolineRequest Info
WESTBURY, N.Y., Aug. 29, 2011 — The Spectrolinker XL-1000 UV cross-linker from Spectronics Corp. is designed for use by biotech researchers. Ease of use and high accuracy render it suitable for elimination of polymerase chain reaction contamination, cross-linking of DNA and RNA, nicking ethidium-bromide-stained DNA, gene mapping, RecA mutation screening and testing, UV sterilization, UV-induced polymerization, UV intensity monitoring and other UV-dosage applications.

Features include a “smart” microprocessor controller and true UV-monitoring circuitry, which allows users to obtain error-free results faster, safer and more accurately than was previously possible. The instrument ensures reliable cross-linking by covalently binding nucleic acids to membranes in <30 s.

The UV-monitoring circuitry guarantees that the set dosage is always delivered, protecting important test results from washout damage. The cross-linker increases the visibility of samples on autoradiograms, which results in good analysis and sharp, clear, publication-quality photodocumentation.

The XL-1000 has four operation modes, built-in “help” messages and an auto-repeat function. It is equipped with five 8-W 254-nm tubes (312- and 365-nm tubes also are available). Full-range display resolution is accurate to ±5 µW/cm². The XL-1000 has electromagnetic interference and radio-frequency interference protection.
