Problem is that noise is everywhere.
You can filter out some of it, but there does not exist a "that which is
not signal" filter.
(Other than a correlator or boxcar, which works with signals of only a
single frequency.)

As far as making low noise PCB layouts, I've never heard the bit above.
I'm sure there exist expensive solutions, but I've always found that a bit
of attention to the layout and a knowlege of the basic physics involved, to
be sufficient.  I use an old but reliable cad program (dos orcad), and I
never use the autorouter.
