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 the safety viewing eyepiece or 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 x 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 ultraviolet lamps, available separately.
