The CleanView line of UV sterilization cabinets from Cleaver Scientific, Warwickshire, UK, provide a sterile contained environment for the preparation and manipulation of sensitive biological samples. Acting as a low-cost alternative to a cleanroom, powerful UV lights in the cabinet are used to denature nucleic acids in 5 to 30 minutes, making them unsuitable for amplification. The cabinets incorporate safety features to prevent user exposure to UV light: the UV lights are timer controlled, and safety switches automatically turn off the UV lights when the cabinet doors are opened. The cabinet also acts as an efficient shield from radioactive beta emissions, and can therefore be safely used with isotopes such as 32P.? For more information, visit Cleaver Scientific.
