I would appreciate if any/all could share their experiences/concerns about
using DEPC treated water for RNA/DNA work.
My own experience since 1985 has been to avoid using such water. I prefer to
exercise sterile technique throughout the lab
in order to minimize contamination of RNA/DNA. So far, no problems.
I wonder why Gibco-BRL sells DNase/RNase free distiled water instead of DEPC
