Crosslinking of DNA and RNA to nylon or nitrocellulose membranes
Microprocessor control provides precise UV dose control
Irradiation can be defined as energy (Joules/cm²) or time (seconds)
- Preset programs for nucleic acid immobilization at 120 mJoule/cm2

Immobilization of Nucleic Acids to Membranes
The UVP Crosslinker is a microprocessor controlled UV irradiation system dedicated to nucleic acid linking to membranes for Southern, Northern, Dot and Slot Blot applications. It can also be used for UV sterilization and for elimination of PCR contaminations.
Microprocessor Controlled Reproducibility
The programmable microprocessor constantly monitors the UV light emission. Irradiation stops exactly when the programmed energy is achieved. Thus, the effect of decreasing UV intensity due to bulb aging is compensated for.
The UVP Crosslinker combines the latest UV technology with high quality manufacturing: stainless steel UV exposure chamber, protective quartz disk on the UV sensor cell, and a highly resistant and easy-to-clean keypad and housing.
Ease of use
The large display provides a series of predefined methods, making the UVP Crosslinker an easy to use yet powerful instrument for immobilization of nucleic acids to membranes. The programmed data are shown on the LED display.
