Denville, NJ, USA – Liège, Belgium – November 7, 2017 Diagenode, a leading global provider for complete solutions for sample preparation and epigenetics research, has now launched a unique system that utilizes automation of chromatin immunoprecipitation coupled with a ligation-free library preparation for high-throughput sequencing , ChIPmentation.
ChIPmentation is based on the well-studied “tagmentation” method and combines both chromatin immunoprecipitation and library preparation using transposase and sequencing-compatible adaptors within the same protocol. The new ChIPmentation stands out from standard ChIP-seq library preparation by incorporating automation and a more efficient library preparation method for high efficiency and reproducibility with low input and difficult samples.
“The new Diagenode ChIPmentation system truly represents a breakthrough in ChIP-sequencing,” said Jerome Kroonen, Ph.D., Strategic Marketing Manager at Diagenode. “The protocol integrates library preparation with ChIP on Diagenode’s IP-Star Automation System, eliminating the error-prone steps that researchers typically encounter with standard ChIP-seq, especially for challenging sample types.”
Kroonen elaborated, “ChIPmentation will soon become the standard go-to protocol for researchers who need to study the regulation of gene expression from post-translational histone modifications or transcription factor activity in clinical samples, FFPE materials, tissues, or any lower quality or low quantity samples.”
