Nuclease detection and control

Reagents for rapid detection and elimination of RNases and DNases. The detection assays, which are effective for testing lab reagents, equipment, and other lab supplies, can be read visually for qualitative assessment of contamination or quantified using fluorometry. Two oligonucleotide substrates are offered for nuclease detection, RNaseAlert® and DNaseAlert™ substrates. Both are available in a variety of configurations:

  • Complete kit—includes single use tubes, buffer, water, enzyme, and Nuclease Decontamination Solution
  • Single-use tubes—25 single-reaction tubes ideal for rapid, hand-held, visual assays at the bench
  • Bulk tubes—for use in visual assays or quantitative measurement in a fluorometer
