Application Note: Nucleic Acid Decontamination with The ExitusPlus™ Technology
12 November 2009

This application note investigates the molecular mechanism of various commercially available DNA decontamination reagents. It was found that none of the conventional reagents destroyed DNA molecules efficiently and only PCR analysis in combination with a DNA degradation test will show the true decontamination potential of a reagent, as it will avoid false results from masking or modifying of the nucleic acid material.
