UV VIEWING CABINET

The Spectroline CL-150 Series UV workstations enable lab technicians to view, analyze, and photograph fluorescent samples with both epi-illumination and transillumination light sources. A removable bottom panel allows either unit to be placed directly over the transilluminator. The 25 W white light bulb in the cabinet provides visible illumination for easy sample preparation. Researchers can either utilize the safety viewing eyepiece or substitute a "snap-on" camera adapter for photography. Simply place the adapter onto the cabinet in place of the eyepiece to produce superior quality digital images. The spacious CL-150 cabinet is able to accommodate large electrophoresis gels and up to four 8 in ×8 in (20 cm ×20 cm) TLC plates. It can be used with any one or two of 11 different models of Spectroline X- and XX-series 15 W UV lamps (separately available).

ICE BUCKETS AND ICE PANS

In addition to their superior insulation properties and chemical resistance, Magic Touch 2 ice buckets and ice pans include a convenient pour spout to easily drain unwanted ice melt, drip-proof rims that keep the bench dry, and snug-fitting, keyed lids and bases for easy stacking. The new Magic Touch 2 Icewares are compatible not only with wet ice, but also with ultralow temperature materials including dry ice, salt slurries, dry ice solvent slurries, or liquid nitrogen. Able to withstand a wide temperature range of -196°(-320° to 100°(212°, these high quality, expanded urethane icewares are lightweight, durable, nonsweating, and impervious to moisture and odors. Scienceware Magic Touch 2 ice buckets are available in 2.5 L and 4.0 L sizes with lids. Ice pans are available in 1.0 L, 4.0 L, and 9.0 L sizes with lids, and in the 9.0 L size without lid. All are available in four vibrant new colors: ebony, true blue, cherry red, and emerald green.

CIRCULATING BATH SYSTEMS

A broad lineup of open tank circulating bath systems for laboratory use are available with either stainless-steel or polycarbonate tanks. These economical baths are offered in reservoir sizes ranging from 6 to 28 L and with three different temperature controllers, including a programmable model with a highly intuitive operator interface. All controllers display both actual and setpoint temperature on a readout that is easily read from across the lab. These stainless-steel open tank systems are available with 6, 10, 20, or 28 L reservoirs and either the Advanced Programmable, Advanced Digital, or MX controller. Polycarbonate models feature 8, 11, 14, 17, 23, or 28 L reservoirs and come with either the Advanced Programmable or MX controller. All models feature an insulating, chemical resistant top deck that remains cooler at high temperatures and is easily cleaned and disinfected.

QUICKLOCK ROTOR SYSTEM

Eppendorf aluminum rotors have been optimally crafted to take your centrifuge experience to an all-new level. Our rotors measure 18 mL ×1.5 mL for microcentrifuge 5418 R and 6 mL ×50 mL for multipurpose centrifuges 5804 R and 5810 R. They now have a lid-locking mechanism that makes everyday routines faster and easier. The QuickLock lid system requires only a quarter of a turn for certified aerosol-tight containment, providing easy access and safe centrifugation of precious samples. An audible "click" signal clearly indicates that the lid is securely fastened. The low rotor weight of our fixed-angle rotors allows for easy loading and unloading of the rotor and requires less power consumption during centrifugation. Eppendorf's advanced rotor design is not only an ergonomic solution for your lab, but also a green one. Each Eppendorf rotor is made with 100% recyclable aluminum.

DNA STAIN

A new, ready-to-use, safe, sensitive and more flexible alternative to ethidium bromide and other DNA stains is now available. RunSafe is a significant new tool for gene cloning applications that enables scientists to see their samples separate in real time. RunSafe is a nonmutagenic fluorescent reagent that produces instant visualization of DNA bands upon Blue Light or ultraviolet (UV) illumination of gels. Simply mix, load, and run, and RunSafe acts as a loading dye and a DNA stain combined, for added speed and convenience, for optimum economy, and low environmental impact. Supplied in the 6X DNA loading buffer, RunSafe can be used to prepare DNA markers and samples for loading on agarose or polyacrylamide gels. It is a highly sensitive stain available for detecting double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). It contains three tracking dyes (Bromophenol Blue, Xylene Cyanol FF, and Orange G) for visual tracking of DNA migration during electrophoresis.
