Chromatin studies

Chromatin shearing

The first step of ChIP - chromatin preparation - plays a key role in a succesful ChIP experiment. Each step of chromatin preparation (starting amount of material, cross-linking, cell lysis and chromatin shearing) has to be optimized, leading to a chromatin sample suitable for ChIP. A high quality chromatin sample combines two features: a suitable fragment size range and the availability of epitopes for ChIP.

Diagenode has optimized a range of solutions for successful chromatin preparation. Chromatin EasyShear Kits together with the Bioruptor ultrasonicator combine the benefits of efficient cell lysis and chromatin shearing, while keeping epitopes accessible to the antibody, critical for efficient chromatin immunoprecipitation. Each Chromatin EasyShear Kit provides optimized reagents and a thoroughly validated protocol according to your specific experimental needs. SDS concentration is adapted to each workflow taking into account target-specific requirements.

Diagenode’s Chromatin EasyShear Kits:

  • Highly optimized solutions for chromatin preparation validated with the Bioruptor
  • Recommended for the optimization of the chromatin shearing of a new cell line/new sample type prior to ChIP
  • Ideal for chromatin preparation prior to ChIP
  • Validated: Kit performance has been validated in ChIP-seq, confirming high quality of chromatin

Chromatin preparation is the first step of a ChIP assay. At Diagenode we offer complete and optimized solutions for ChIP and ChIP-seq, which include all buffers for chromatin preparation. For best results, choose your desired ChIP kit followed by the corresponding Chromatin EasyShear Kit (to optimize chromatin shearing ). The Chromatin EasyShear Kits can be used independently of Diagenode’s ChIP kits for chromatin preparation prior to any chromatin immunoprecipitation protocol. Choose an appropriate kit for your specific experimental needs:
