Grant UVT-B-AR Ultra violet Cabinet
The Grant bio UVT-B-AR is an economical general purpose PCR UV cabinet in for carrying out short-term procedures. It is an economic model with stainless steel work surface, metal framework and shock proof glass panels.
The UVT-B-AR cabinets are equipped with an open UV lamp installed in the upper part of the hood. UV-radiation from these lamps effectively disinfects the working area chamber, inactivating DNA / RNA fragments during 15-30 minutes of exposure. The UV light switches off automatically when door is opened.
The built-in UV cleaner-recirculator both increases the maximum density of UV light and generates 25 m³/h air flow exchange – prevents unwanted contamination and protects the user from direct UV light during manipulation. The UV cleaner-recirculator consists of UV lamp, dust filters and a fan. The recirculation effect increases the maximum density of the UV light making it sufficiently effective for DNA / RNA inactivation. The recirculator processes 360 UV-cabinet volumes per hour, creating permanently aseptic conditions within the cabinet.
Grant Bio PCH range of Benchtop Cooler/Heaters
The Grant bio PCH-1/PCH-2/PCH-3 personal benchtop cooler/heaters are ideal for laboratory applications requiring cooling and heating in microtubes within the temperature setting range of – 10°C to +100°C. The PCH cooler/heaters enable a stable temperature to be maintained during room temperature fluctuations.
The ingenious block construction, combined with a powerful Peltier module, produces very rapid cooling and heating for swift change of application and increased flexibility. In addition, the Peltier effect produces efficient cooling and heating for small thermal loads without the use of a refrigeration system. The dry temperature control system maintains a clean working environment, reducing the chance of contamination or sample dilution. A Peltier system, without the vibration of refrigeration or the turbulence of a waterbath, is also ideal for all incubations where stable conditions are critical.
The PCH is a very effective tool for DNA sample preparation for denaturing electrophoresis. The exceptionally rapid heat up enables the denaturation temperature of 95°C to be reached swiftly, the timer will signify denaturation time-up, and the samples can be rapidly cooled again ready to load the gels.
