  • alternative SPRI beads

    Is anyone using SPRI beads other than Beckman Coulter's Agencourt AMPure XP? Is anyone using MagBio's HighPrep PCR beads?

  • #2
    Yep, we have been using MagBio's HighPrep PCR beads and the KapaPure beads. Both worked similar to the Ampure XP beads, also for size selections.

      We just follow the DIY SPRI bead protocol here https://openwetware.org/wiki/SPRI_bead_mix. We tested our home-brewed mixture with Ampure beads and didn't find much difference.

      It is extremely cheap to make compared to the Ampure beads. You could make a liter of it for 400 bucks.

        There is also a solution PCRClean Dx. Did anyone try this one?

          we use SeraMag beads (carboxyl beads, hydrophylic). With a 150 EUR bottle (15 ml) one can make 750 ml of bead solution. We follow the protocol detailed in this paper: PMID:22267522

            Also using homemade beads with the same protocol as melop, much cheaper.

            If you're worried they aren't as good you can validate them against whatever you're using now.

              PCR Clean DX

              These are from Aline Biosciences.

              In my last lab our robotic company tried to tell me our preps weren't working because we used Aline. They sent us Ampure beads and we did a side-by-side comparison. Aline performed better and at about 1/3 the cost.

              To sum up: YES! Use them! They are great and a good company to work with as well.

                We used them very successfully in my last lab. They even outperformed the originals.

                  SPRI Beads for DNA, RNA, microRNA & Oligo Purification

                  SPRI Beads (DNA & RNA Purification)
                  Optimized to purify DNA fragments of 100 bp and larger, and RNA fragments of 200 bases and larger.
                  Features:
                   Purification of DNA and RNA
                  • DNA fragments > 100 bp
                  • RNA fragments > 200 nt

                  • NGS Library preparation
                  • PCR fragment purification
                  • DNA and RNA fragment purification
                  • Other applications requiring purified DNA and RNA



                  SPRI Beads (microRNA & Oligo Purification)
                  Overcomes the hurdle of the short DNA/RNA recovery problem. DNA/RNA fragments shorter than 100 base pairs can be effectively recovered.
                  Features:
                   Purification of short DNA and RNA
                  • microRNA
                  • dsDNA fragments >20 bp
                  • ssDNA fragments >20 nt
                  • RNA fragments >20 nt
                  • DNA/RNA hybrid fragments >20 nt
                  • Oligo and chimeric oligo >20 nt

                      CleanNGS are fine too.
                      They work both on DNA and RNA and are rather cheap.

                        Hello everyone,

                        MagBio Genomics offers HighPrep PCR clean-up kit, a direct replacement to AMPure XP beads that is over 50% cheaper. No change to protocol is needed. Please reach out to me at [email protected] to inquire more.

                        Thank you.

                          DINOMAG cleanup and size selection SPRI magenetic beads (cat# DN9004-75ML) works great as a direct replacement to AMPure XP at a much lower price! https://labscoop.com/us/en/product/r...magnetic-beads (probably ~50-80% less than other commercially available magnetic bead-based reagents listed)​

                            Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                            by seqadmin




                            The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                            In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
