Difficult and challenging histone ChIP-seq is now solved. Diagenode’s latest technology for histone ChIP-seq, ChIPmentation is a ligation-free, tagmentation-based protocol that incorporates chromatin immunoprecipitation with NGS library preparation. Using histone ChIPmentation, you can avoid the multi-step ligation required for traditional histone ChIP-seq. ChIPmentation enables an easier protocol, faster time to results, and excellent reproducibility for histone ChIP-seq from challenging and low input samples.

  • Characteristics

    ChIPmentation is based on tagmentation that allows library preparation to be integrated during the ChIP itself using transposase and sequencing-compatible adaptors. ChIPmentation involves much easier and shorter protocol with high efficiency for low input samples using optimized ChIP and NGS sample preparation.

    Benefits of the ChIPmentation system for histone ChIP-seq

    • Easier and faster than classical ChIP-seq
    • Validated for various histone marks
    • Ideal for analysis of large cohorts of samples
    • Ideal for analysis of large number of marks on a unique sample
    • High quality sequencing data

    ChIPmentation - Highest reliability for even the lowest inputs

    The new histone ChIPmentation technology has been tested on histone marks and compared to available datasets from the ENCODE project (Figure 1). ChIPmentation generated high quality data with low background. In addition, more than 99% of the top 40% peaks obtained with auto-ChIPmentation overlap with ENCODE datasets, which shows that ChIP-seq data obtained with ChIPmentation are highly reliable.

    Chromatin preparation has been performed on 7 M  K562 cells using the ChIPmentation Kit for Histones (Cat. no. C01011010). Diluted chromatin from 100.000, 10.000 and 5.000 cells was used for the immunoprecipitation with the Diagenode antibody targeting H3K4me3 (Cat. no. C15410003). A.

    Chromatin preparation has been performed on 7 M HeLa cells using the ChIPmentation Kit fro Histones. Diluted chromatin from 100.000 cells was used for the immunoprecipitation with the Diagenode antibody targeting H3K4me3 (Cat. no. C15410003) and H3K27me3 (Cat. no. C15410195) and IgG (Cat. no. C15410206).

  • Additional solutions compatible with ChIPmentation Kit for Histones

    Chromatin shearing optimization kit - Low SDS (iDeal Kit for Histones) optimizes chromatin shearing, a critical step for ChIP.

    ChIP-seq grade anti-histone antibodies provide high yields with excellent specificity and sensitivity.

    For fast and efficient isolation of magnetic beads we recommend the magnetic racks DiaMag1.5 and DiaMag0.2.
