FAQ: What is a recommended procedure if unwanted beads are retained in the pipet tips during an elution step?

Gently expel the entire contents of the pipet tip into the original tube(s) and allow an additional incubation on the magnet for 1 minute, or longer if necessary.  Attempt  elution again, carefully positioning the pipet tips on the wall of the tube(s) facing away from the magnet center and bound beads.  

Note: A slower pipet aspiration, or multi aspiration with smaller volumes, may be useful 
in this situation.
