RT-PCR Grade Water is certified free of nucleases, and free of nucleic acid contamination that may cause false-positive signals in RT-PCR. The RT-PCR Grade Water is ready to use and requires no preparation, mixing, or autoclaving.
Quality control RT-PCR Grade Water is tested for prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic genomic DNA contamination using an ultrasensitive PCR assay. It is provided in 10 x 1.5 mL tubes. Prokaryotic DNA contamination is assessed by performing PCR with primers to 16S rRNA. Eukaryotic DNA contamination is assessed by performing PCR with primers to 18S rRNA. It is rigorously tested for contaminating nonspecific endonuclease, exonuclease, and RNase activity and is suitable for any PCR application.
