This complete solution contains all buffers and reagents for cell lysis, chromatin shearing, immunoprecipitation, and DNA purification. In addition, unlike competing solutions, the kit contains positive and negative control antibodies (CTCF and IgG, respectively) as well as positive and negative control PCR primers pairs (H19 and Myoglobin exon 2, respectively) for your convenience and a guarantee of optimal results.

The  iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Transcription Factors is compatible for cells or tissues:

Amount per IP
Cells 4,000,000
Tissues 30 mg

The iDeal ChIP-seq kit is the only kit on the market validated for major sequencing systems. Our expertise in ChIP-seq tools allows reproducible and efficient results every time.


One of our issues was that we could obtain only a limited number of cells, which is not enough for canonical ChIP-seq protocols. To solve this issue, we used the Diagenode ChIPmentation solution composed of iDeal ChIP-seq Kit for Transcription Factor, TAG Kit for ChIPmentation, and 24 SI for ChIPmentation. We performed ChIPmentation with IP-Star automated system for GATA6 in 2 million GATA6-overxpressing iPS cells. The result showed clear signal/noise ratio and was highly reproducible. This solution also worked in vitro differentiated definitive endoderm cells (data not shown).

  •  Testimonials

    We were very happy with the method.  It gave good results in the end, and required much smaller samples than we need to reliably perform conventional ChIP-seq.
    In our view, the main advantages of the ChIPmentation kit compared to our conventional ChIP-seq protocol are (most important first):

    • smaller sample requirement,
    • simpler workflow with less that can go wrong,
    • slightly higher resolution and signal: noise ratio.

    Researcher from University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis, Nice, France

    I have been using Diagenode products to perform ChIP-seq during the last three years and I am very satisfied, with the Bioruptor, the kits and the antibodies. I have used the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Histones and the iDeal ChIP-seq kit for Transcription Factors with very successful and reproducible results. Once I tried to ChIP histones with a home-made protocol and it worked much worse in comparison with Diagenode kits. In other occasion, I tried a non-Diagenode antibody for a transcription factor and I also got much poor results, however with the Diagenode antibody I always got very nice results. I strongly recommend the use of Diagenode products.

    Dr. Francisca Martinez Real - Development and Disease Research Group - Max Planck Institute for Molecular Genetics, Berlin, Germany

    There are so many ChIP-related products on the market, but I feel so lucky that I have been using the ones from Diagenode since I started my CHIP-seq project. I have used their iDeal CHIP-seq Kit for Transcription Factors and MicroPlex Library Prep Kit v2. Both of them are fantastic and very reproducible. With the very-well written protocols, you will just be home and dry. Particularly, I want to thank the technical support, who is very patient, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend my colleagues to use the CHIP products from Diagenode.

    Mineralocorticoid receptors (MRs) and glucocorticoid receptors (GRs) are two closely related hormone-activated transcription factors that regulate major pathophysiologic functions. High homology between these receptors accounts for the crossbinding of their corresponding ligands, MR being activated by both aldostero...

    Bcl11b, a novel GATA3-interacting protein, suppresses Th1 while limiting Th2 cell differentiation.
    Fang D, Cui K, Hu G, Gurram RK, Zhong C, Oler AJ, Yagi R, Zhao M, Sharma S, Liu P, Sun B, Zhao K, Zhu J
    GATA-binding protein 3 (GATA3) acts as the master transcription factor for type 2 T helper (Th2) cell differentiation and function. However, it is still elusive how GATA3 function is precisely regulated in Th2 cells. Here, we show that the transcription factor B cell lymphoma 11b (Bcl11b), a previously unknown compo...

    DNA methylation signatures follow preformed chromatin compartments in cardiac myocytes
    Nothjunge S. et al.
    Storage of chromatin in restricted nuclear space requires dense packing while ensuring DNA accessibility. Thus, different layers of chromatin organization and epigenetic control mechanisms exist. Genome-wide chromatin interaction maps revealed large interaction domains (TADs) and higher order A and B compartments, r...

    MYC drives overexpression of telomerase RNA (hTR/TERC) in prostate cancer
    Baena-Del Valle JA et al.
    Telomerase consists of at least two essential elements, an RNA component hTR or TERC that contains the template for telomere DNA addition and a catalytic reverse transcriptase (TERT). While expression of TERT has been considered the key rate-limiting component for telomerase activity, increasing evidence suggests an...

    The complex genetics of hypoplastic left heart syndrome
    Liu X. et al.
    Congenital heart disease (CHD) affects up to 1% of live births. Although a genetic etiology is indicated by an increased recurrence risk, sporadic occurrence suggests that CHD genetics is complex. Here, we show that hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a severe CHD, is multigenic and genetically heterogeneous. Us...

    Sethi I. et al.
    Although epidermal keratinocyte development and differentiation proceeds in similar fashion between humans and mice, evolutionary pressures have also wrought significant species-specific physiological differences. These differences between species could arise in part, by the rewiring of regulatory network due to cha...

    First landscape of binding to chromosomes for a domesticated mariner transposase in the human genome: diversity of genomic targets of SETMAR isoforms in two colorectal cell lines
    Antoine-Lorquin A. et al.
    Setmar is a 3-exons gene coding a SET domain fused to a Hsmar1 transposase. Its different transcripts theoretically encode 8 isoforms with SET moieties differently spliced. In vitro, the largest isoform binds specifically to Hsmar1 DNA ends and with no specificity to DNA when it is associated with hPso4. In colon ce...
