The Spectrolinker XL-1000 UV crosslinker from Spectronics is 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. Features include "smart" microprocessor controller and true UV-monitoring circuitry, which allows users to obtain safe, accurate, and error-free results. The Spectrolinker ensures reliable crosslinking in record time by covalently binding nucleic acids to membranes in less than 30 seconds. The UV-monitoring circuitry guarantees that the set dosage is always delivered, protecting important test results from washout 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. The XL-1000 has EMI/RFI protection.
