Default E-gel vs BluePippin for narrow size selection???

Hi Everyone,

I am facing a problem with size selection of Covaris fragmented DNA. I would require insert sizes in the narrow range 700-800 bp for library preparation. BluePippin was not able to provide a narrow size range for the 750 bp library.
So I was wondering if I can use the E-gel 2% size select for this narrow size selection.
Have you ever tried getting narrow sizes using E-gel size select for the sizes 700-800 bp? What is the recovery rate of the library following size selection? What is your opinion on use of E-gel for size selection compared to BluePippin?

It will be very helpful for me if you can share some details.
Looking forward for your reply. Thank you very much.
