Spectroline CX-20 and CX-21 high-intensity UV viewing cabinets combine separate long-wave and short-wave 8-watt UV light sources with uniquely designed specular aluminum reflectors to provide intensity and fluorescent contrast. Both units have removable bottom panels so they can be placed over large objects or, to provide greater illumination, over a Spectroline UV transilluminator. The cabinets’ housings are made of vinyl-clad aluminum for maximum durability. The flexible, contoured viewing eyepiece has a UV-absorbing window for comfort and safety. The window also eliminates “blue haze” interference and increases contrast between the fluorescent area and the background. Loading and unloading plates and gels is simple. Soft rubber curtains on both sides of the CX-20 allow easy entrance to its interior. A hinged metal door at the front of the CX-21 offers the convenience of using one hand to manipulate specimens. Both the curtains and the door assure shielding from external light. Users select UV wavelengths by pushing a button and all power buttons are color coded for easy-to-use control to protect samples. An internal white light source provides visible illumination.
