Product Details

Contamination control and PCR process repeatability is simplified with the Esco range of PCR Cabinets. Each Esco PCR Cabinet provides ULPA-filtered vertical laminar flow to purge the work area of contaminants between amplifications and during preparatory procedures. An integrated UV lamp enables rapid decontamination of the work zone between experiments and prevents cross-contamination. Esco offers premium performance for a price that is competitive with conventional "dead" air boxes.
Polymerase Chain Reaction* (PCR) is a process where millions of copies of DNA are amplified from a single copy, or low copy number template. This reaction is fundamental to almost all applications requiring a high copy number of starting material and is used in all laboratories working with DNA and RNA.
Because of the high copy number generated during PCR, it is essential to prevent possible contamination of the PCR reaction. Precautions must be taken during the sample and reagent preparation steps to minimize this risk. In addition to good laboratory practice, the ideal PCR laboratory should consist of three areas, each isolated from the other. Reagents should be prepared in the reagent preparation area and transferred to the sample preparation area, through a pass box, or inside closed containers. After preparation of the final reaction mix, the tubes should be transferred to the amplification area, again through a pass box or in a closed container. The PCR amplification and results analysis takes place in this area.
To guarantee contaminant-free samples, it is essential to work in an environment where the air quality is controlled. This should form part of the equipment in the sample preparation area.
