Minimize False Positives from PCR
- Completely degrades contaminating DNA and RNA at the level of PCR sensitivity
- Works on contact
- Ideal for cleaning PCR tubes, PCR machine surfaces, pipettors, lab benches, lab equipment, microfuge tubes, etc.
DNAZap™ (patent pending) consists of two solutions that are innocuous by themselves, but which become a potent nucleic acid degrading solution when mixed. This mixture is able to degrade high levels of contaminating DNA and RNA from surfaces instantaneously (Figure 1). DNAZap provides a convenient method to decontaminate a variety of surfaces in a matter of minutes. It even effectively eliminates contaminating DNA in PCR tubes without inhibiting subsequent enzymatic reactions. All contaminating nucleic acid is degraded to nucleotides, preventing any chance of false positive amplification.
