How to inactivate/destroy DNase I?

Hi netters,

Working on parasites, we want to destroy free DNA, let excystate the 
organism afterwards and detect him by PCR. The problem is:

How could the DNase I (bovine) be inactivated without destroying the yet 
viable cysts??

Are there possibilities to use pH-, temperature or chemical/enzymatic 
changes? The functionless of the enzyme after the treatment must be sure.
