INTRODUCTION
PCR WORKSTATION
The Purair PCR laminar flow cabinet
employs the Air Science Multiplex™
HEPA filtration technology to create a
safe, energy-efficient contaminant-free
APPLICATIONS
These cabinets are
intended for use in nonhazardous applications
where biological or
biohazard byproducts
are not generated and
user protection is not
required.
•PCR Laboratories
•Forensics
•Pharmaceutical
•Sample Preparation
•General Research
environment. It is ideally suited for use
with non-hazardous contaminants
and when flexible access to the instrumentation in the cabinet is required.
Polymerase chain
reaction1 (PCR) is a
simple and inexpensive
technique to make
multiple copies of a
targeted nucleotide
sequence from a DNA
sample, and to amplify
sequences from small
samples. This technique
is widely used in genetics
laboratories that work
with DNA and RNA.
Because PCR amplification is extremely sensitive
to contamination,
prevention of contamination requires good
laboratory practices
to minimize external or
cross-contamination
during reagent
preparation, sample
preparation and sample
amplification.
CONVENIENCE
AND CONSTRUCTION
BENEFITS
• Purair PCR cabinets
are available in three
model sizes with
various options.
• Cabinets are shipped
fully assembled with
standard power
cords; no installation
required.
• The integral UV
lamp fixtures are
pre-installed.
• All filters are preinstalled, easy to
access and change.
• Products are designed
for desktop use, or
may be installed on
an optional base
stand or mobile cart.
• The high capacity
air handling system
delivers flow velocity
of 0.45 m/s (90 fpm).
• Purair® PCR cabinets
are constructed of
steel with a microbial
powder finish coating.
The optional stainless
steel work surface
includes lips on all four
sides to contain spills.

PRODUCT FEATURES:
A. Task Lighting: Fluorescent cabinet lamp located away
from laminar flow area.
B. Ultraviolet Lighting: Built-in ultraviolet lamp with timer
permits decontamination between PCR cycles. Includes
a double-flap safety cover of 0.2" (5 mm) UV absorbing
254 nm beta radiation resistant polycarbonate; provides
superior operator protection while allowing easy access
to the work zone. Timer can be set over range of 0 to 60
minutes or set to HOLD.
C. Comfort: Ergonomically angled front improves reach
and user comfort.
D. Decontamination Shelf: Mounted on the back wall
is proximate to the UV lamp for maximum exposure.
E. Filter: Camfil Farr main HEPA filter with 99.99% efficiency
for 0.3 micron particulates. The pre-filter can be changed
while the unit is operating to prevent operator exposure
to chemical vapors.
F. Pass Through Ports: Convenient rear-wall pass through
ports for safe routing of instrument cords, cables and leads.
G. Double-Hinged Self-Locking Front Sash: With
overlap closed, the cabinet sash protects samples on
the work surface from contamination with 100 fpm airflow.
The sash completely closes unit off when not in use and
is easy to open and latch.
H. Fan: High-performance ebmpapst™ centrifugal fan.
I. Stand: Optional base stand converts to mobile
cart with optional locking casters.
J. Work Surface: Large polypropylene work surface,
white or black standard, with optional stainless steel
work surface available.
K. Filter Door Lock: Prevents unauthorized removal
or accidental exposure to dirty filters.
L. Magnetic Door Latch: Safety interlock prevents
accidental operator exposure when door is opened.
OTHER FEATURES:
360 Degree Visibility: Clear back and side panels
allow ambient illumination into the chamber and provide
users with an unobstructed view of its contents.
Standards Compliant: Performance specifications
and construction meet or exceed OSHA, ANSI and relevant
international standards to assure operator safety.
Construction: All models are available in either metal
or polypropylene construction, specify when ordering.
Available in 120V, 60Hz or 220V, 50Hz models.
Steel Support Frame: The chemical resistant epoxy
coated steel frame adds mechanical strength. Optional
all polypropylene construction is available if desired.

The integrated control panel
features an On/Off switch for
the fan, light and UV lamp timer.

AIR SCIENCE
MULTIPLEX FILTRATION
TECHNOLOGY
Purair ® PCR-36 shown with Multiplex filtration system.
The Multiplex filtration
consists of a pre-filter
and main HEPA filter.
The mechanical design
enhances safety,
convenience and
overall value.
Room air enters from the top of the cabinet through the disposable pre-filter where
larger particles are trapped, increasing the service life of the main HEPA filter.
• The disposable
pre-filter is accessible
from the exterior top
of the cabinet.
Purified air travels across the work zone to the work surface in a vertical, unidirectional
downflow stream, and then exits the work zone across the front area of the cabinet.
• A filter clamping
mechanism allows for
the filter to be easily
installed and ensures
an even seal at the
filter peripheral face
at all times to prevent
bypass leakage.
Air is forced evenly across the HEPA filter to deliver a flow of pure, uniform air within
the work zone to dilute and flush airborne contaminants from the work area.
A nominal filter face velocity of 0.45 m/s (90 fpm) ensures that there is sufficient number
of air changes within the work zone to eliminate cross-contamination and to maintain
optimum cleanliness.
A. The main filter is easy to replace; no tools required. The filter clamps tightly against
the filter gasket to prevent filter bypass and to maintain filter integrity.
