Rugged
Non-brittle filter made of plastic which does not crack easily
No solarization i.e., UV-transparency of UV-transparent diffuser window is unchanged over time

Safe
No skin burns or damage to retina as UVA tubes emit light similar to light found outdoors
Negligible photo-nicking or photo-bleaching of DNA due to use of lower energy UVA lights
Dual (Hi-lo) mode for viewing. Go to high mode only when required
Economical
Low capital cost and spares
