... (New; DTT, dNTPs, Primers, water{Sterile MQ}, RNase out, buffer) and have not found the contamination, I have confirm the negatives are firing by endpoint PCR with primers designed to span an intron (therefore I no there is cDNA/RNA in my negatives). I have subsequently run a negative with -template ...
