Quick Tips - Should I do a size selection or a clean-up for NEBNext Ultra DNA or RNA workflows?

This video will help you decide if you need to do a size selection or a simple clean-up for the NEBNext Ultra DNA or RNA.

Script

A lot of you have been asking me whether to do a size selection or a simple cleanup for the NEBNext Ultra DNA or RNA workflows.

The first consideration would be whether you need a precise insert range. If you need a precise insert range, you would have to do a size selection.

The other factor is, how much starting material you have. If your starting material is low and you are doing a size selection you could potentially reduce the complexity of your library. So, if your input amount is low, just do a cleanup.

It is always important to remove adaptor dimer. If you have adaptor dimer after the PCR cleanup, you can do another 0.9x SPRI bead ratio cleanup.
