Precautions and Disclaimer

This product is for R&D use only, not for drug, household, or other uses. Please consult the Safety Data Sheet for information regarding hazards and safe handling practices.

Note - Gloves should be worn when handling this product. RNase AWAY is alkaline in nature and will cause irritation if prolonged contact with the skin is allowed. In case of contact with eyes, immediately flush with water for fifteen minutes and contact a physician. If swallowed. Do not induce vomiting. Give plenty of water and contact a physician immediately.

Guidelines for Use

The following are suggested guidelines only and usage will vary depending upon the surface and the level of contamination present. Apply RNase AWAY liberally to the surface to be decontaminated. It is important to ensure that the solution contacts the entire surface. Vigorously rub the wet surface with a RNase-free laboratory wipe, then dry with a fresh RNase-free wipe. It is important that the entire surface is completely dry as residual RNase AWAY may degrade an RNA or DNA sample.

Alternatively, you may soak items overnight in RNase AWAY®, then rinse thoroughly with RNase-free water and dry.

When cleaning pipettors, make sure that the solution does not come in contact with any seals or gaskets.
