amplicon

(1) Any PCR amplification product.
(2) A segment of DNA to be amplified (e.g., in PCR).
(3) Any fragment of replicating DNA produced by natural or artificial amplification events.

amplicon

(am′plĭ-kon″)
An amplified segment of specific DNA or RNA sequences in which multiple copies of the nucleic acid sequences are found. Amplicons can be made during polymerase chain reactions or may occur spontaneously, e.g., in the nucleic acid content of certain organisms or tumors.

amplicon

nucleic acid product generated by a nucleic acid amplification technique, such as the POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION, from a target DNA or RNA segment.

This would contain on the order of 10 and 12 template copies (amplicons); in other words, if a thorough cleaning reduced this by a million fold, you'd still have a million amplicon copies "floating around," each of which could contaminate a reaction.
Fragment analysis of amplicons was accomplished by capillary gel electrophoresis on a Beckman Coulter[TM] CEQ 8000XL Sequence Analyzer with the CEQ DNA Size Standard-400.
