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.

PCR with classical ctxB-specific primers ctxBF4/ctxBRvCla yielded an amplicon of 191 bp, but not with Haitian ctxB specific primers ctxBF3/ctxBRvCla, indicating that the isolates had a ctxB of classical biotype (genotype 1) (5,6).
