WESTBURY, N.Y., Dec. 7, 2011 — The compact, lightweight CM-10MP mini viewing cabinet manufactured by Spectronics Corp. is suitable for life sciences applications that require high-contrast fluorescence analysis, for viewing thin-layer chromatography plates, and for quality control inspection of printed circuit boards. Weighing 1.8 kg, it can be conveniently carried from place to place. With its compact dimensions of 22.2 × 25.4 × 11.4 cm, the space-saving unit can fit easily in cramped areas. Made of molded high-impact plastic for rugged durability, it features a contoured eyepiece with a built-in ultraviolet-absorbing window for safe viewing. Openings on top of the cabinet accommodate one or two MiniMax series UV lamps. The user places the cabinet over the lab samples being examined, turns on the UV lamps and observes the bright fluorescent response. MiniMax lamps are available in three models: UV-5A for long-wave UV (365 nm), UV-5F for short-wave UV (254 nm) and UV-5NF for a combination of long- and short-wave UV emissions.
