Is the Microbial qPCR mastermix used in the Microbial DNA assay and in the Microbial DNA arrays free of genomic bacterial DNA?
FAQ ID - 3535

Yes, they are free of bacterial genomic DNA. Each Microbial DNA array contains a control for genomic DNA control, which gives a signal for gDNA contamination. A Ct below 35 indicates that there is a bacterial genomic DNA contamination.
