Dark Box System

Dark Box System – For handling reaction tubes in a light protective environment and isothermal incubation.

During all the steps previous to DNA neutralization by the means of photo-activation it is necessary to protect the reaction solution from light, in order to avoid unspecific reactions and reagent loss. Additionally, according to reagent nature, microorganisms and sample types, in some cases it is also very important to ensure temperature stability during the incubation time. With the appropriate temperature the reagent diffusion through cell membrane of dead microorganism could be optimized, as well minimizing the reagents access to live microorganism.

The dark box system combines these characteristics and is therefore the best solution for handling your samples during viability PCR process.

The tube rack can be placed into a fridge or a microbiological incubator to reach the appropriate temperature (i.e. 3ºC or 45ºC).

Unique Features

  • Temperature Stability: At room temperature the system will maintain the temperature with a maximum drift of 0.35ºC/min (for a difference of 25ºC with respect to room temperature).
  • Light Protection: The tube rack and the cover will protect the sample from light during all the process.
  • Flexibility: All items are sold separately. You can work with the tube rack and black cover in order to maximize thermal stability and light protection.
    You can also use the black cover as simply alternative for sample handling and light protection.
  • Compatibility: Compatible with PhAST tube holder.

The dark box system combines these characteristics and is therefore the best solution for handling your samples during viability PCR process.
