The PhotoActivation System for Tubes – PhAST – equipment neutralszes the DNA/RNA of dead organisms through the use of photoactivable intercalating reagents. The samples treated with the system enable the detection of DNA/RNA from only the living cells by PCR, Flow Cytometry or Fluorescence Microscopy.
The PhAST is thermally stable with a constant and uniform light dose and allows simultaneous photo activation of 12 samples in a simple and efficient manner.
PhAST combines high power LED with the proper optical alignment of the reaction tube to ensure the maximum efficiency in the binding of the reagent to DNA.
PhAST allows optimizing photo labelling method by programming different parameters such as light intensities and photo-activation times.
