This chamber has been designed to help improve the accuracy of P.C.R.* and general Tissue Culture procedures. The chance for air-borne contamination during D.N.A. sequencing is greatly reduced. The chamber is a "still air enclosure" which contains both fluorescent and U.V. germicidal lamps. The U.V. system is rated at 254 nm and will decontaminate all surfaces of the interior. The lamp should be activated 15 minutes prior to and 15 minutes after planned use.
The front viewing panel is .500 (13 mm) thick optically clear material. It is extremely effective for protection against 32P labeled compounds. It is very effective against Beta Rays but not Gamma rays. Front plate is replaceable. (catalog # 825-UVC (F5))
Access to the interior of the chamber is gained by pushing the thumb knobs and lifting off the corner doors. The doors are removable therefore do not take up valuable laboratory counter workspace. If a corner door is opened, proximity sensors turn off the power to the U.V. System.
Ancient Viral Molecules Essential for Human Development Genetic material from ancient viral infections is critical to human development, according to researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine.Measuring microRNAs in Blood to Speed Cancer Detection A simple, ultrasensitive microRNA sensor holds promise for the design of new diagnostic strategies and, potentially, for the prognosis and treatment of pancreatic and other cancers.Best Test to Diagnose Strangles in Horses Identified New research by Dr. Ashley Boyle of New Bolton Center’s Equine Field Service team shows that the best method for diagnosing Strangles in horses is to take samples from a horse’s guttural pouch and analyze them using a loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test.Tardigrade's Are DNA Master Thieves Tardigrades, nearly microscopic animals that can survive the harshest of environments, including outer space, hold the record for the animal that has the most foreign DNA.
Rapid, Portable Ebola Diagnostic Scientists confirmed the efficiency of the novel Ebola detection method in field trials.Detecting When Hormone Treatment for Breast Cancer Stops Working Scientists have developed a highly sensitive blood test that can spot when breast cancers become resistant to standard hormone treatment, and have demonstrated that this test could guide further treatment.Packaging and Unpacking of the Genome New research improves understanding of the importance of histone replacement. New Way to Find DNA Damage University of Utah chemists devised a new way to detect chemical damage to DNA that sometimes leads to genetic mutations responsible for many diseases, including various cancers and neurological disorders.How Different Treatments for Crohn's Effect the Microbiome Different treatments for Crohn's disease in children affects their gut microbes in distinct ways, which has implications for future development of microbial-targeted therapies for these patients, according to a study led by researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. Charting the 'Genomic Biography' of Leukemia A new study by scientists at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard offers a glimpse of the wealth of information that can be gleaned by combing the genome of a large collection of leukemia tissue samples.
