FAQ: I dropped a few of my glass beads. Can I clean them, and do you supply extra?
NEB provides an overage of beads to accommodate for users who may drop them. In the 5-prep kits, we provide 2 extra beads, and in the 50-prep kits, we supply ~5-7 extra beads. The Monarch DNA Capture Beads are also available for purchase separately (NEB #T3005). Additionally, any beads that are dropped can be washed with detergent solution (e.g. 2% SDS or RNaseZap), rinsed water and with 70% ethanol, dried and then used.
