Affordable, high performance gel documentation and analysis
The omniDOC is the first of two new systems from Cleaver Scientific offering high performance gel documentation and analysis at a relatively low cost. By providing many of the features used by leading gel documentation brands, but without the added price premium, each omniDOC system presents a simple but sophisticated imaging solution for most laboratories. A high resolution 5 mega pixel monochrome camera with slide-out UV transilluminator, and optional blue epi-illu -mination module and white light table, makes the omniDOC suitable for imaging most fluorescent and colorimetric gels, while a USB port requires a cable to connect the dark room assembly to an external PC for control. Imaging applicationsare made easy by a pre-focused camera that requires little orno manual adjustment, while simple one-click image acquisition and analysis software guides the user through every step of the gel documentation process. A front LED indicator panel reveals at a glance the light source in use, whereas a viewing screen with universal filter and spring-loaded cover facilitates safe and convenient gel inspection.

The Cleaver Scientific UV Sterilisation Cabinets provide a convenient area for setting up PCR reactions in a nucleic acid free environment, thus limiting PCR reaction contamination.
Acting as a low cost alternative to a clean room, the powerful UV lights on the cabinets denature nucleic acids in 5 to 30 minutes making them unsuitable for amplification. White light provides excellent visibility when working within the cabinets.
The cabinet incorporates safety features to prevent user exposure to UV light; the UV lights are timer controlled, and there are safety switches on the cabinets doors which automatically turn the UV lights off when opened.
The cabinet also acts as an efficient shield from beta radioactive emissions, and can therefore be safely used with isotopes such as 32P.
For use with trays of size 68 x 54cm, CSR-TW4/TY4/TL4.

A powerful magnetic stirring mechanism combined with high wattage heating allows each Cleaver Scientific stirring water bath to maintain temperatures to a maximum 99°C.
A powerful magnetic stirring mechanism combined with high wattage heating allows each Cleaver Scientific stirring water bath to maintain temperatures to a maximum 99°C. Available in 10 and 20 litre bath capacities, these water baths comprise as many as 3 stirrers for a maximum stirring speed of 1800 rpm. Each bath includes a conspicuous front-panel LCD, reproducible microprocessor control of temperature within 0.1°C increments, a corrosion resistant stainless steel interior and automatic alarm and safety shut down mechanism. Optional data logging and PC control software is also available.
With a durable and chemically resistant ceramic surface, Cleaver Scientific’s digital hotplate stirrer is the ideal solution for demanding users in all laboratory environments. The minimal footprint (18 x 26 cm) allows for use in crowded spaces such as fume hoods while the 16.5 cm square plate makes these units compatible with a wide range of commonly used vessels such as beakers, bottle and conical flasks.
Fast and precise adjustment of speed and temperature is achieved with advanced microprocessor technology, and a large backlit LCD display offers easy viewing of current parameters. A safety LED indicates temperatures over 50°C. An optional external thermometer and support rod allows temperature control of the sample by direct feedback to the microprocessor, maintaining temperature to within +/- 0.5°C.
