FAQ: Can I use Agencourt® AMPure® XP Magnetic Beads instead of NEBNext® RNA Sample Purification Beads (RNAClean® XP Magnetic Beads)?

Yes, it is possible to use AMPure XP Beads. However, we recommend using the RNAClean XP Beads/ NEBNext® RNA Sample Purification Beads (supplied in NEB #E7755) as these beads have been manufactured and tested to eliminate RNase contamination. A version of the kit includes these beads: NEBNext® Globin mRNA and rRNA Depletion Kit (Human/Mouse/Rat) with RNA Sample Purification Beads (NEB #E7755).
