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

Yes, it is possible to use AMPure XP Beads. However, we recommend using the RNAClean XP Beads/ NEBNext® RNA Sample Purification Beads as these beads have been manufactured and tested to eliminate RNase contamination. A version of the kit includes these beads: NEBNext® RNA Depletion Core Reagent Set with RNA Sample Purification Beads (NEB #E7870).
