I am new to this forum and molecular biology generally. So I have been doing PCR, I now need to clean-up my product and am using a Min-Elute kit from Qiagen. I have to dilute the buffers included with ethanol of which we have lab stocks. My dumb question: Is it safe to use these lab stocks ? How susceptible to contamination is ethanol? I will soon be moving onto RNA work and am also wondering the same thing......can I trust lab stocks of ethanol or should I buy in my own........can I make ethanol nuclease free??
Oh am using the PCR product for sequencing after clean-up
