Product Details

  • Built-in radiometer calibrated to a NIST traceable standard enables precise and accurate dosing to obviate end-user calibration 

  • Safety interlocks to prevent users from accidental UV exposure 

  • Capable of delivering up 10 J/cm2 of UVA, UVB, or UVC

  • Extensive publication record using UVP Crosslinkers (here)

  • Highly-uniform surface illumination

  • Compact-size to accommodate limited lab space

Shortwave UV (UVC) as a Disinfectant

Ultraviolet light is considered an ancillary disinfectant to chemical disinfectants in the healthcare environment. Our high-precision CL-3000 crosslinker is capable of producing a cumulative dosage of 1 J/cm2 , this is considered well beyond the requirement needed for disinfection. The CL-3000 provides nearuniform UVC light with a ~10% coefficient of variation and less than 2 mJ/cm2 difference between the highest and lowest reading. Most importantly, the CL-3000 has real-time monitoring of UVC dosage to assure reproducible dosing irrespective of space and time.

Immobilization of Nucleic Acids to Membranes

The UVP Crosslinker is a microprocessor controlled UV irradiation system dedicated to nucleic acid linking to membranes for Southern, Northern, Dot and Slot Blot applications. It can also be used for UV disinfection and for elimination of PCR contaminations.

Microprocessor Controlled Reproducibility
The programmable microprocessor constantly monitors the UV light emission. Irradiation stops exactly when the programmed energy is achieved. Thus, the effect of decreasing UV intensity due to bulb aging is compensated for.

The UVP Crosslinker combines the latest UV technology with high quality manufacturing: aluminum UV exposure chamber, protective quartz disk on the UV sensor cell, and a highly resistant and easy-to-clean keypad and housing.

Ease of use
The large display provides a series of predefined methods, making the UVP Crosslinker an easy to use yet powerful instrument for immobilization of nucleic acids to membranes. The programmed data are shown on the LED display.
