PCR cabinets are enclosures that are specifically designed to maintain a sterile environment whilst the PCR technique is underway. Because of this, they are especially popular in genetics laboratories. Due to the contamination sensitivity of this practice, it is important that PCR cabinets are completely sterile and are built to a high quality, especially when it comes to sealing potential gaps and joints.
If cross-contamination occurs during the amplification process of DNA and RNA, then any results obtained will be inaccurate. This will, in turn, lead to a loss of time and the consumption of reagents, both of which can prove to be costly.
TION's PCR cabinets are made up of a workspace enclosed on three sides with UV sterilisation and optional fan and HEPA filter to prevent contamination. The PCR cabinets are customisable by width, depth, and height, offering you a range of options to suit your workspace.
Polymerase chain reaction, commonly known as PCR, is a method that is used across the molecular biology field. Its purpose is to create copies of specific segments of DNA. Through PCR, DNA sequences are repeated upon themselves to create millions of copies of a specific segment of DNA. This has proved to be an invaluable technique in many sectors and has a wide selection of applications such as criminal forensics and biomedical research.
