Default Innovative Solutions vs AMPure

Today we were visited by folks from Innovative Solution who were promoting their PCRClean and DNA SizeSelect purification kits. They claim that side-by-side with AMPure, we would get far better results with their kits. The PCRClean will remove any fragments less than 120 bp. And their DNA SizeSelector-454 are designed to retain greater than 500 bp. Has anyone tried these products yet? And if so, can you provide feedback?

I get excellent results from Ampure so I find it hard to believe you can get far better results from any other system. I'll be interested to hear about this too.

It has a higher range of size selection (above 1kb), but it more challenging to use for automation as the beads settle out of the less viscous solution.

I have limited experience with it, seems like it could be beneficial for larger insert gel-free protocols.
