Hi, can anyone tell me what is the easiest and/or most efficient way to
purify one strand of a PCR product from the other?

The product of the PCR will be about 100bps but I wish to use one strand
as a primer for a reverse transcription reaction and I do not want
contamination from its complementary strand.

Is it possible to selectively degrade one or other strand?

Thanks in advance
