WESTBURY, N.Y., Sept. 9, 2013 — Spectronics Corp.’s new Select XLE-Series UV crosslinker helps identify and analyze trace amounts of DNA/RNA faster and with greater sensitivity than conventional analysis.
The instrument covalently binds nucleic acids to membranes in <30 s — 240 times faster than vacuum-oven baking. It provides true-UV-monitoring circuitry that safeguards test results from washouts, even when the tubes age.
It also is useful for eliminating PCR (polymerase chain reaction) contamination, nicking ethidium-bromide-stained DNA in agarose gels, gene mapping for creating cleavage-inhibiting thymine dimers, RecA mutation screening in E. coli, UV sterilization and miscellaneous UV-dosage applications.
The device features a fully programmable microprocessor, built-in “help” messages, an auto-repeat function and five 8-W tubes. It is available in 254-, 312- and 365-nm versions.
