Nuclease-free water is water that has been treated to remove any nucleases that may be present. Nucleases are enzymes that can break down DNA and RNA, and they can be present in water, especially if it has been in contact with living cells or tissues. If nucleases are present in water, they can degrade nucleic acids, which can be a problem in many applications, such as PCR, RNA isolation, and DNA sequencing.
Nuclease Free Water is used for DNA/RNA and PCR applications where nucleases could jeopardize results. Nuclease Free Water is essential for gel electrophoresis, PCR, and DNA/RNA purification protocols.
Nuclease Free Water is prepared through DEPC treatment and autoclaving
