since i had a lot of troubles with pcr contamination i decided to pipet my pcr reactions under a hood which is only used for PCR Pipetting.
This hood has also UV-Light and I was told to switch it on during pipetting. But does tghis make sence at all??? Waht is exactly the purpose of UV-Light under this hood???
My results were zero!!! I didnt have any PCR product at all!!! Is it possible that the UV liht is the reason??? And by teh way: UV light is harmfull for the eyes!
Would appreciate any helpful suggestions :-)
