Biosan`s UV-Cleaner box with UV-Recirculator provide efficient DNA amplicon decontamination that has been proven experimentally. See brochure.
UVC/T-AR, DNA/RNA UV-cleaner box
DNA/RNA UV-cleaner box UVC/T-AR is designed for clean operations with DNA samples. UV-cleaner box provide protection against contamination.
Model is a bench-top type, made of metal framework, plexiglas walls and working surface painted with powder enamel.
UV-cleaner boxes are equipped with an open UV lamp installed in the upper hood. UV-radiation from the open lamps disinfects the working area inactivating DNA/RNA fragments during 15–30 min of exposure. A digital timer controls duration of the direct UV irradiation. A daylight lamp provides proper illumination of the working surface.
UV-cleaner boxes are equipped with a flow-type bactericidal UV cleaner–recirculator AR, which provides constant decontamination inside the box during operation. They are recommended for operations with DNA/RNA amplicons.
UV cleaner–recirculator AR consists of a UV lamp, a fan and dust filters organized in a special body so that a user working with a UV-cleaner box is protected against UV light. Recirculator increases the maximum density of UV light making it sufficiently effective for DNA/RNA inactivation. The UV–recirculator processes 100 UV-cleaner box volumes per hour, creating permanent aseptic conditions of operation inside the UV-cleaner box.
Specially assigned moving tables T-4 (with wheel locks) with a drawer are available on request.

Frequently asked questions
UVT-S-AR, UVT-B-AR, UVC/T-M-AR.
Glass panels on the outside:
use a soft sponge or cloth with common washing solution for glass, remove excess and wipe dry. Do not use ethanol or other organic solvents.
Internal cleaning and disinfection:
The following substances are recommended to use for decontamination: 70% ethanol, sodium hypochlorite solution, DNA/RNA removing solution (e.g. DNA-Exitus Plus™, RNase-Exitus Plus™). After washing the inside parts of the box it is necessary to rub them dry.
The front and side panels are made of Plexiglas™ and are prone to scratches and optical transmission capacity decrease if improperly cleaned. Use a soft sponge or cloth with mild soap and water, remove excess water and wipe dry.
Internal cleaning and disinfection:
Use a mild detergent for all the interior surfaces. For decontamination, use a special DNA/RNA removing solution (e.g. DNA-Exitus Plus™, RNase-Exitus Plus™). After washing the inside parts of the box it is necessary to rub them dry.
Yes, you can. The UV-lamp of the UV-Recirculator is enclosed into a metal case and no light escapes, therefore it is not harmful for the operator.
No, table for the cabinet can be ordered separately.
No, it does not. Instead, Biosan`s UV-Cleaner box are equipped with a UV-Recirculator, that provides constant working area decontamination during cabinet`s operation.
No, PCR cabinet is used only for clean operations with DNA/RNA samples.
No, it is not recommended to use PCR Cabinets for tissue/cell culture. Biosan PCR Cabinets are designed for sample preparation for PCR reactions and manipulation with nucleic acids.
PCR cabinets have built-in UV recirculator to protect the samples in the working area, but personnel and environment are not protected.
Operator should monitor the amount of dust in the filter, because it depends on the duration of use and cleanliness of the working room. The procedure for replacing/cleaning dust filters is described in the user manual p.13. See user manual below.
In a UV-cleaner box there is 1x fluorescent lamp (15 W) for working area illumination, 1x open UV lamp (25 W) for working area disinfection and 1x UV Recirculator (25 W) for constant decontamination inside the box during opearation.
Average lifetime of UV lamps supplied is 9000 h. That is equivalent to 1 year of non-stop use everyday for 24h
