Not clear what this is. Or what "minimizing index hopping" means. What fold reduction are they seeing with use of this reagent?

More info, including the manual here:

As always, I'm less worried about "free adapter" per se. It's the adapter strands annealed to full length library molecules that tend to escape clean-up.
