The Prep station provides continual protection during the preparation and temporary storage of your PCR sample tubes. Protect products and samples from contamination with Class 100 clean air or better. A HEPA filter rated 99.99% efficient at 0.3 microns and a Dacron prefilter rated 65% efficient at 6 microns create a particulate-free work area of better than 100 ppm.
To further reduce the risk of contamination of samples, the prep station incorporates a 15 waft UVsterilization lamp to destroy any potentially contaminating DNA or RNA. A high efficiency centrifugal, brushiess AC motor with dynamically balanced backward curved impeller is mounted inside a vinyl painted steel blower housing. The variable speed control allows for continuous adjustment of air flow from 30% up to full speed.
The enclosure is constructed of UV stabilized acrylic (1/2/1, clear acrylic top for easy viewing and 3/8" clear acrylic side panels) The hood includes a vertically hinged polycarbonate door. The worksurface is a smooth, white polyethylene surface, which is easily cleanable. A 15 waft fluorescent lamp is provided for ample lighting of the work area. Both the UV and fluorescent lights are provided with a control switch.
Includes HP-2 and PF-IR filters.
