Chromatrap® has published a comprehensive Applications Compendium that includes hints and tips to improve your Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) experiments, increase the effectiveness of your ChIP-seq library preparation and brings together its latest application notes in one informative document.
Chromatrap® solid-state ChIP technology has been adopted and shown by leading research groups worldwide to be more efficient than conventional bead-based methodologies. This is because the solid phase porous polymer, functionalized with either protein A or G, provides a greater surface area for chromatin antibody binding with very low non-specific binding.
In addition, it uses a spin column approach, offering significant speed, process and carry-over advantages over sepharose or magnetic beads. DNA pull down with Chromatrap® is up to 25 times more than conventional methods, whilst the signal to noise ratio for DNA enrichment is 2 to 3 times better, even with low chromatin samples.
Chromatrap® ChIP assays are now available for classical qPCR, sequencing and ChIP from formaldehyde fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) samples using either spin columns or 96-well filter plates.
