The Spectrolinker™ -- Crosslinking Versatility Defined

WESTBURY, NY--(Marketwired - July 11, 2016) - The Spectroline® Spectrolinker™ XL-1000 UV crosslinker could be the biotech researcher's most versatile instrument. It's ideal for many applications including: elimination of PCR contamination, crosslinking of DNA and RNA, nicking ethidium-bromide-stained DNA, gene mapping, RecA mutation screening and testing, UV sterilization, UV-induced polymerization, UV intensity monitoring and many other UV-dosage applications.

Researchers appreciate the XL-1000's "smart" microprocessor controller and unique, true UV-monitoring circuitry, which allow users to obtain error-free results faster, safer and more accurately than previously possible. The Spectrolinker ensures reliable crosslinking in record time by covalently binding nucleic acids to membranes in less than 30 seconds. These units are built specifically to eliminate time-consuming adjustments, unnecessary repetitive programming and unwarranted risk of sample damage.

The XL-1000 has four operation modes, built-in "help" messages and an auto-repeat function. It is equipped with five 8-watt 254nm tubes (312nm and 365nm tubes are also available). Full range display resolution is accurate to ± 5 µW/cm² EMI/RFI protection.

The Spectrolinker is available in SW, MW and LW wavelengths, interior chambers offered in two sizes.
