When I looked for universal (16S rRNA genes) PCR methods for 
environmental analysis I came across Prof. E. C. Boettger from
Medical Microbiology in Hannover, Germany, Fax: +49-511-532 4366.
You may want to look at a paper J. Clin. Microbiol. 31 (1993) 
646-652.Elimination of Contaminating DNA within Polymerase 
Chain Reaction Reagents: Implications for a General Approach 
to Detection of Unculatured Pathogens.

Hope this helps
