12 colon cancer (black) and 12 healthy adjacent tissues (white) were processed with and without carry-over prevention procedure. The PMR values were calculated from the ratio of DNA values obtained by TMEFF2-HM and a reference real-time PCR. () Results from two measurements of SafeBis DNA using UNG for carry-over prevention are plotted. The values on the -axis were obtained from samples spiked with 10 000 copies of uracil containing TMEFF2 PCR products, representing a carry-over contamination. On the -axis, the PMR values from the same SafeBis DNA samples, without spiked amplificates, were plotted. () A correlation plot of the results from the standard method without carry-over prevention (-axis) and the results obtained from SafeBis DNA spiked with 10 000 copies contaminating PCR products and prior UNG treatment (-axis).
