Things to remember and avoid when using your PCR cabinet

 

DNA analysis can be exhausting and expensive if not done correctly and carefully. Esco PCR cabinets make sure that your DNA samples, reagents, and PCR products are protected against contaminants from the ambient environment and cross-contamination within the main chamber.

There are things that we must remember when using your cabinet which will not only maximize the performance of your PCR cabinet but also ensure safety of you samples.

 

These must be your “NOT TO DO” list:

  1. Do not use an open flame inside the cabinet.
  2. Do not overload the work area to prevent blocking the air grilles
  3. Do not forget to disinfect the work area before and after use
  4. Do not fail to turn on the blowers while working
