The PCR Clean Air Bubble is designed to provide an enclosed environment for the handling of sensitive PCR reagents. The system operates as a positive pressure HEPA filtered system that creates a continual ISO Class 5 clean air blanket over the sample preparation area.
Airflow is taken in from the laboratory and filtered through a 2 stage HEPA filter system before passing into the enclosure and back out into the laboratory. Airflow is monitored continuously to ensure that no airborne contaminants can enter the enclosure. Each enclosure also features a proven 254nm germicidal UV-C lamp to provide bio-decontamination before and after use.
