WESTBURY, N.Y., July 15, 2016 — Spectronics Corp. has announced the Spectroline Spectrolinker XL-1000 UV crosslinker with a smart microprocessor controller and true UV-monitoring circuitry, allowing users to obtain error-free results. The Spectrolinker ensures reliable crosslinking quickly by covalently binding nucleic acids to membranes in <30 s. The units are built specifically to eliminate time-consuming adjustments, unnecessary repetitive programming and unwarranted risk of sample damage. It has four operation modes, built-in help messages and an auto-repeat function. The device is equipped with five 8-W, 254-nm tubes, with 312- and 365-nm tubes also available. The XL-1000 is ideal for many applications including elimination of PCR contamination, crosslinking 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 many other UV-dosage applications.
