The Monmouth Circulaire PCR Cabinets are mini vertical laminar flow cabinets that are designed for use during Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplifications to prevent cross contamination. The cabinets provide better than ISO Class 4 (Class 10) clean air conditions at the worksurface. To further reduce the risk of contamination, both cabinets have a built in UV steriliser.
Between amplifications, simply place all pipettes, tubes and flasks in the cabinet, fit the lightweight, safety interlocked nightdoor and after 5, 10, 30 or 60 minutes (operator programmable) the UV light will switch off and all potentially contaminating DNA will be destroyed.
Two versions are available. The PCR650 is fitted with a low airflow alarm and preset UV light countdown timers, whilst the PCR650E is fitted with an electronic LCD screen giving more user information such as UV countdown timer, hours run indicator and airflow status. Both cabinets however give the same high quality levels of cleanliness.
The Monmouth Scientific Circulaire PCR cabinets are all covered by our superb industry-leading 5 year warranty. This means that as we have so much confidence in our own equipment, we will warrant it is free from defects in materials or workmanship for a period of 5 years from the date of delivery. This warranty includes parts (not consumables), labour and where applicable, covers repair at your (UK mainland) premises.
