DNA contamination in PCR is a serious problem in labs using PCR-technology frequently.

DNA contamination in PCR is a serious problem in labs using PCR-technology frequently. Small amounts of amplicon- or target DNA contaminations could lead to PCR artifacts and false positive results. Originating from aerosolized fragments in centrifuges, pipettes and other lab equipment or from small splatters during working with open reaction tubes, contaminant DNA is very hard to remove and can lead to cross contaminations between samples and widespread problems throughout the testing procedure and interpretation of results. Therefore lab monitoring should be performed in regular time intervals, where samples are collected from surfaces and/or equipment, which are easily exposed to target and amplicon DNA contaminations.
