Simple yet versatile

The UVIlink CL 508 Crosslinker is a fully microprocessor controlled unit especially designed to give the best possible results when binding nucleic acids to membranes. The correct ultraviolet dosage can be set using the membrane switch keypad, in either energy units (Joules) or time (seconds). There are nine possible presets for energy exposure and nine presets for time exposure as well as manual user selection in either units.

Superb quality results in less time

Ultraviolet crosslinking of DNA and RNA to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes is now well established as a laboratory technique and there is considerable published work on the topic. Time saved from UV crosslinking over the conventional vacuum oven baking method is considerable - seconds or minutes as opposed to hours.

Small and safe without compromising efficiency

UVIlink CL 508 provides a compact unit occupying minimum bench space with a footprint of only 350 x 350 mm and a spacious interior chamber of 270 x 300 x 140 mm. As with all UVItec products, safety is a major consideration so the CL508 door is safety interlocked against opening during operation and the observation window in the door is ultraviolet blocking. The ultraviolet energy is continuously monitored by an accurate microprocessor controlled photo feedback system which compensates for variation in output from the UV sources. In this way consistency of operation and maximum efficiency are maintained.

Applications include:

• Fixing of nucleic acids to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes

• Southern or Northern blotting, dot blotting and colony or ple lifts

• Elimination or reduction of PCR contamination

• Nicking ethidium bromide stained DNA in agarose gels

• Gene mapping for creating cleavage inhibiting thymine dimers

• Screening RecA mutation

• Ultraviolet curing of polymers, adhesives and inks

• Ultraviolet sterilisation
