Turbo Nuclease is very effective in degrading nucleic acid from protein samples and it is used in a variety of application where complete hydrolysis of DNA/RNA is required:
Turbo Nuclease is a broad-spectrum endonuclease that cleaves both DNA and RNA molecules independently of being single- or double-stranded, circular, linear or supercoiled. The enzyme is highly stable and active in a broad range of pH and temperature, making it ideal for a variety of downstream processes that require the degradation of DNA/RNA in a simple, efficient and specific manner.
