denaX uncolored is a ready-to-use decontamination spray for fast elimination of contaminant nucleic acids from surfaces1 . denaX uncolored effectively degrades nucleic acids (genomic DNA, amplicon, plasmids, RNA) from laboratory surfaces such as glass, ceramic, plastic, rubber, steel and precious metal. The use of denaX uncolored is fast, easy and assures a clean working area and reliable PCR results.
denaX uncolored is intended for effective decontamination of benches, pipettors, PCR workstations, lab devices, etc. to assure a clean working environment during nucleic acid isolation and PCR analysis. We recommend to apply denaX uncolored both before and after the handling of nucleic acids.
1. Simply spray on the potentially contaminated surface1 (make sure the surfaces completely moistened),
2. wait for 1 minute,
3. wipe it off with a paper towel and
4. rinse with DNA-free water.
For coated or sensitive surfaces, we recommend to spot test prior to use to avoid damage or discoloration. Contamination of pipettes may even occur while using filtered tips. For the decontamination follow the manufacturer ́s instructions and remove the shaft from the pipette. Remove seals and gaskets from the shaft. Soak the shaft for 1 minute in denaX uncolored, rinse thoroughly with clean water, dry and reassemble.
Handling: The denaX solution is non-alkaline and non-carcinogenic. Eye contact and prolonged contact of denaX uncolored with skin may cause irritation. Therefore, safety glasses and disposable gloves should be worn while handling the reagent.
Storage: denaX uncolored is heat resistant and stable at room temperature for at least 12 months. At lower temperatures a precipitate might occur which can be resolved easily at 37°C.
1 denaX uncolored cannot be used for the cleaning of light or non-ferrous metals. To avoid damage or discoloration, it is recommended to spot test sensitive surfaces prior to use. Do not spray on electronic devices. 2 For use in research and industry only. Not recommended for clinical applications.
