FAQ: I accidentally stored the Sample Purification Beads and Bead Wash 1 (BW1) at 4°C. Can I still use them?

Yes, these reagents can still be used if stored at 4C. Make sure the Sample Purification Beads and Bead Wash 1 (BW1) reach room temperature prior to use. You may notice a precipitate in BW1 if it was stored at 4°C. Once it reaches room temperature, gently invert the bottle ~10 times to dissolve the precipitate. Do not use BW1 until all of the precipitate has dissolved (this can take up to 4 hrs).
