The Analytik Jena CL-3000 UV Crosslinker is designed to measure and control the
ultraviolet (UV) radiation within the exposure chamber. A unique UV sensor continually measures the UV energy and automatically adjusts to variations in UV intensity that occurs as the UV tubes age. This same UV sensor feedback measurement system allows you to set UV sample exposure, which automatically deactivates the UV sources when the set UV energy dose has been achieved.
Crosslinking of DNA and RNA to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes
Microprocessor control provides precise UV dose control
Irradiation can be defined as energy (Joules/cm²) or time (seconds
- Preset programs for nucleic acid immobilization at 120 mJoule/cm2
- Safety interlock door with UV protection glass
Shortwave UV (UVC) as a Disinfectant
Ultraviolet light is considered an ancillary disinfectant to chemical disinfectants in the healthcare environment. The high-precision CL-3000 crosslinker is capable of producing a cumulative dosage of 1 J/cm2 , this is considered well beyond the requirement needed for disinfection. The CL-3000 provides near uniform UVC light with a ~10% coefficient of variation and less than 2 mJ/cm2 difference between the highest and lowest reading. Most importantly, the CL-3000 has real-time monitoring of UVC dosage to assure reproducible dosing irrespective of space and time.
Immobilization of Nucleic Acids to Membranes
The UVP Crosslinker is a microprocessor controlled UV irradiation system dedicated to nucleic acid linking to membranes for Southern, Northern, Dot and Slot Blot applications. It can also be used for UV disinfection and for elimination of PCR contaminations.
Microprocessor Controlled Reproducibility
The programmable microprocessor constantly monitors the UV light emission. Irradiation stops exactly when the programmed energy is achieved. Thus, the effect of decreasing UV intensity due to bulb aging is compensated for.
The UVP Crosslinker combines the latest UV technology with high quality manufacturing: aluminum UV exposure chamber, protective quartz disk on the UV sensor cell, and a highly resistant and easy-to-clean keypad and housing.
Ease of use
The large display provides a series of predefined methods, making the UVP Crosslinker an easy to use yet powerful instrument for immobilization of nucleic acids to membranes. The programmed data are shown on the LED display.
