Abstract This study establishes a filtration method for the safe removal of Bacillus anthracis spores which may contaminate DNA preparations. Centrifugal filtration with 0.1-microm filter units can be used following extraction of DNA from B. anthracis spores to render samples safe without compromising the sensitivity of diagnostic real-time PCR assays for B. anthracis.
