The DNase Detection Kit* is designed to determine if DNase contamination is present in sample solutions. In the procedure, DNA is incubated with a test samples and is then run on an agarose gel for analysis. The DNase Detection Kit is capable of detecting as low as 10-7 Kunitz units/µl and is ideal for screening PCR buffers and reagents prior to amplification experiments. Shipped on dry ice. Must be kept frozen before use.
Up to four samples can be tested simultaneously with this kit. DNase activity can be quantified by comparison to the reference standards included. The kit is ideal for early detection of DNase activity in reagent solutions that will be used for sensitive DNA based experiments.
