Microprocessor controlled UV irradiation system
- Easy handling: Only two switches: one for Intensity and one for Start
- Automatic safety cut-off of UV radiation when tray is opened
- Low need of repairs because sensor is protected from mechanical defects
- Setting of energy (J/cm²) or time (s)
- High lifespan due to durable sensor
- High reproducibility due to microprocessor control
- Pull-out tray and housing made of stainless steel
- Large-size tinted and UV tight front panel
- Available in 3 wave lengths (254, 312 (302) and 365 nm)
The new Crosslinker CL-1, developed by Herolab, has a unique method for measuring the UV radiation. For the exact determination of the emitted UV radiation during the measurement the built in processor also detects and measures the emitted white light. By monitoring the white light any aging of the detector caused by the UV radiation is therefore excluded.
The Crosslinker can be used for the rapid and reproducible fixing of nucleic acids to membranes using UV light with a wavelength of 254 nm. (Other wavelengths are available on request). The hybridization signal is 5 to 10 times higher compared to conventional methods using the UV Crosslinking application (e.g. baking).
