PCR Clean™


Contaminant DNA is especially problematic in the highly sensitive PCR technique, as its removal has proven to be no trivial matter. Originating from aerosolized fragments, contaminant DNA can lead to cross contamination between samples thus resulting in inaccurate data or PCR artefacts. Even a single DNA molecule can be detected in the amplification process leading to widespread problems throughout the testing procedure.

PCR Clean™ is ready-to-use solution for eliminating DNA from any surface. DNA is completely destroyed and removed within seconds. The solution contains a surfactant and a non-alkaline and non-carcinogenic DNA destroying agent. PCR Clean™ is intended for use at PCR workstations, lab devices, pipettors, etc.


Benefits

Highly effective

PCR Clean™ is effective against amplicon, plasmid, or genomic DNA and RNA from most surfaces with the exception of light or non-ferrous metals.

Convenient and ready-to-use

PCR Clean™ is ready-to-use for eliminating DNA and RNA from suitable surfaces.

Fast and easy decontamination

The use of PCR Clean™ both before and after PCR analysis is fast, easy and ideal to maintain a clean work area and thereby saves time and expenses.

Stable

PCR Clean™ is heat resistant and  stable for several years

Recommended Use / Scope

Applicable in research and industry only. Not recommended for clinical applications. Use as directed. PCR Clean™ should be applied on glass, ceramic, plastic, rubber, steel and precious metal. PCR Clean™ cannot be used for the cleaning of light or non-ferrous metals. To avoid damage or discoloration, it is recommended to spot test sensitive surfaces prior to use.
