275nm UV LEDs Successfully Inactivate Rnase A

We report here the first use of high irradiance UV LED sources for enzyme inactivation. RNases are pervasive and when contaminating critical surfaces can present problems for laboratories engaged in RNA sequencing and analysis. RNases, specifically RNase A, are difficult to irreversibly inactivate in the absence of long-term heat treatment1 or harsh chemicals.  ….

Increase Lab Effectiveness with KeyPro™ Decontamination System

The KeyPro™ KP100 system is the first in a family of products designed specifically to take advantage of Phoseon’s SLM™ LED Technology for Life Sciences applications. The KP100 is initially targeted at microplate, preparatory slide, and small surface area decontamination by utilizing a scanning array of UV LEDs in combination with an adjustable height platform. The primary benefit is increased …


KeyPro™ KP100 System Press Release

Introduction to Phoseon SLM™ Technology

While many people are familiar with Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) from a consumer perspective (think Christmas lights, flashlights, automobile head lamps, stop lights, etc.) not many are familiar with industrial-strength low-wavelength LED-based systems based on Phoseon’s patented Semiconductor Light Matrix (SLM) technology. These system-level products incorporate advanced optics, thermal management, … 


RNase Pac-Man 4-teeth

Did you know?

Did you know that RNase A looks like a vampire Pac-Man, with 4 active sites, like “teeth” that chop RNA to bits? Phoseon’s KeyPro™ uses ultraviolet light to disable those active sites and render the damaging enzyme inert.
