The “MicroPlex Library Preparation” protocol on the IP-Star® is using the standard “MicroPlex Library Preparation™ kit” and reagents from Diagenode. The MicroPlex Library Preparation™ kit is the only kit on the market which is validated for ChIP-seq and which allows the preparation of indexed libraries from just picogram inputs.
It provides flexibility to prepare 1 to 48 libraries in one run starting with 50 pg - 5 ng of DNA. The whole protocol takes approximately 1h30. It allows you to prepare up to 96 libraries per day with 2 runs. At the end, you recover ligated products ready for amplification.
