Spectronics' (Westbury, NY) Spectroline CC-80 and CC-81 ultraviolet viewing systems promise unequalled fluorescence analysis and "no-wait" photo-documentation of research findings. Scientists can select from eight "snap-on" camera adapters, so the systems can be used with any 35mm SLR camera or with any of seven different Polaroid cameras. The CC-80 and CC-81 are designed for use in chromatography, electrophoresis, genetic research, photoresist coating inspection, forensic science and more.
Researchers can custom design their own photo-documentation systems by choosing from a wide range of Spectroline UV lamps that are available in 254,
312 and 365nm wavelengths. For even higher UV intensity and greater fluorescent contrast, users can select from 29 Spectroline UV transilluminators. A removable bottom panel allows either unit to be placed directly over the transilluminator.
Both the CC-80 and CC-81 have built-in white light sources that provide visible illumination for easy preparation of samples. The cabinet housing is constructed of durable aluminum. Each cabinet accepts standard electrophoresis gels and up to two 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20 cm) TLC plates. The CC-81 is identical to the CC-80, but it is equipped with a high-intensity Spectroline long wave/short wave UV lamp, making it a complete system.
