IP-Star® Compact

Walk-away automated system

  • Magnetic-bead technology for excellent reproducibility
  • Open platform allows changes in protocol parameters
  • Simple touch screen interface
  • Minimal footprint
  • Processing up to 16 samples
  • Protocols optimal for 100 µl or 200 µl volumes
  • Automated reagent dispensing
  • Controlled temperatures via Peltier blocks

Overview of the Automated System

Automated Protocols

  • ChIPmentation
  • Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP)
  • Methylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (MeDIP)
  • Hydroxymethylated DNA Immunoprecipitation (hMeDIP)
  • Methyl-binding domain protein capture assays (MethylCap)
  • Sequential ChIP (Re-ChIP)
  • Bisulfite conversion
  • DNA purification (IPure)
  • Library preparation for Next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms


Neonatal screening cards provide a valuable bio-bank for retrospective studies. We have used the Bioruptor Pico and IP-Star Compact instrument along with the Auto MeDIP and IPure v2 kit to generate genome-wide DNA methylation profiles using only minute DNA inputs. Using the Diagenode instruments and products has generated reproducible results and saved us hands-on time. We are satisfied with the level of service and technical support and would recommend Diagenode to all others working in the field of epigenetics.
