The beads should be cheaper than the columns, you do not need to use the m most expensive ones (Ampure). You can get also cheap magnet setups from ebay.

We have not tried this protocol. One question is: are your cells in a buffer very low in metals like Mg++ ? The protocol suggests a 1:500 dilution of Phusion HF buffer (presumably 1:500 of a 1x...

Illumina did upgrade the HS2500 sequencers of a few selected companies to V4 chemistry compatibility - overall very few such compatible machines did exist. With this chemistry however, the HS2500 is...

I would check out the SMART-SEQ2 protocol. They did homebrew something similar. I vaguely remember SDS to denature the enzyme.

I guess it is not the throughput nor the lifespan of the instruments that kills the older sequencers; it is mostly the comparatively high costs per base. The exception are the MiSeqs because Illumina...

The presence of a prominent short fragment band indicates that degradation is not the problem. Bacterial RNA-seq obviously will not make use of poly-A enrichment and thus is not very sensitive to...

I do not believe that the bead surface is strongly limiting the DNA amounts that can be precipitated onto it - at least not when using standard Ampure (PEG/NaCl) buffer.
It is worth a try.

What QC information do you have for the libraries before pooling and capture?
After sequencing, how is the read number within the pools?

Every library molecule and every strand has both the P5 and P7 sequences.
Only one of the ends hybridizes initially, because of the direction/complementarity of the flowcell oligos.

PCR cleanup should be comparatively "easy" and all the usual manufacturers should have good options.
Qiagen QIAquick PCR or Zymo DNA clean would be some we have used.
