PCR Workstations

PCR workstations decrease the risk of DNA/RNA contamination with unwanted airborne materials in molecular biology applications.

PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) cabinets create air-barrier to prevent contamination of airborne particles with molecular reactive, and reaction mixtures or any material that has to stay clean during the reaction mixture preparation process. Two types of PCR workstations are produced by Metisafe; Non-Air streamed or HEPA filtered.

Metisafe UV PCR WORKSTATION
Closed box design without air movement, UV PCR workstations create a physical air-barrier against airstreams of the environment. By this way, it reduces sample contamination risk and provides an ideal condition for preparing PCR mixtures and other samples. Metisafe UV PCR Workstations have also built-in shortwave ultraviolet (UV) decontamination system that inactivates DNA and RNA remains in the work chamber between the experiments.

Metisafe HEPA/UV PCR WORKSTATION
HEPA/UV PCR Workstations work with the principle of full air exhausting after filtrating all intaken air without any recirculation. In the cabinet, airflow patterns and routings are electronically controlled.
