Workstation uses UV lamp to decontaminate work area

Erlab's CaptairBio PCR Workstation helps prevent sample contamination between PCR operations.

Erlab's CaptairBio PCR Workstation uses a UV lamp to help prevent sample contamination between PCR (polymerase chain reaction) operations, according to the company.

The fume hood filters air through a HEPA H14 filter; an air flow meter on select models indicates blockage. A central screen located at the front of the device further protects substances from any contamination from the user.

The workstation features energy ports located on the side panels of the enclosure, a metal work surface with an arm rest, and energy efficient internal lighting.

There are 2 types of PCR workstations available: The Biocap DNA static enclosure for applications with a small risk of sample contamination and the Biocap RNA-DNA dynamic enclosure for applications with high risk of sample contamination.

The CaptairBio line also includes the Mobicap rolling cart, which is equipped with an adjustable inner shelf, allowing the user space to work while seated. The cart is equipped with two locking wheels.
