Sterile & PCR ready

Consumables and supplies fit for the rigors of the most sensitive PCR-based science

Look for the Thermo Scientific Sterile & PCR ready product designation when buying consumables for your most sensitive PCR based studies. Products with this designation are among the highest quality available and most comprehensively tested to detect impurities. The Thermo Scientific Sterile & PCR ready designation includes combination testing for sterility and elimination of endotoxins (see Sterile designation), as well as testing for the elimination of RNase, DNase, human DNA, and PCR inhibitors (see PCR ready designation). Products that meet this dual designation are intended to support the extreme demands of PCR-based science where sample material is limited or especially valuable and in applications where any contamination poses enhanced risk to results.   

To receive the Sterile & PCR ready designation, products must meet the following criteria:

Minimum Sterility Assurance Level (SAL) with ISO 11137
 Endotoxin (pyrogen) free
 Human DNA free
✓ RNase Free
 DNase Free
 PCR inhibitor free

Additional criteria met:

✓ Made from high quality resins and raw materials
✓ Manufactured in accordance with ISO 9001 and 13485 standards
✓ Low wetting for accurate liquid measurements
✓ High chemical resistance for durability in most routine lab work
✓ High thermal resistance for stability under wide range of temperatures
✓ High centrifugation stability*
✓ High transparency for good visual sample monitoring*
✓ Precisely shaped for outstanding function and critical measurements

*For applicable products only
