Vari-x-Link is a UV Irradiation Machine for cross-linking protein-RNA and RNA-RNA.

It is a modular designed UV irradiation instrument whereby users can switch between lamps in seconds for either UVA or UVC experiments.

It exposes samples to a high and accurate dose of UV and so cross-linking can occur in seconds.

The machine comes with 254nm lamps and 365nm lamps which can be quickly and easily interchanged.

There are two options, either cross-link in liquid form using the chamber which has a 750ml capacity, or use quartz petri dishes to expose your sample to UV.
