Insert the following step after step 6 in either procedure A or B:  Add 40 µl Co-precipitant on top of the pellet (for larger sample size, add a volume of Co-precipitant that is 3-4x the size of the pellet.)  Carefully reposition the tube in the centrifuge as before (i.e., cap-hinge facing outward).  Centrifuge the tube again for 5 minutes.  Use a pipet tip to remove and discard the Co-precipitant.
