Application Note: ChIP From As Little As 1000 Cells
16 February 2017
This application note that demonstrates how Chromatraps® unique solid state patented technology provides unrivalled sensitivity allowing users to perform ChIP assays using as few as 1000 cells per immunoprecipitation. Usually large cell numbers are required for performing ChIP, which poses something of a challenge when dealing with limited starting material. The available techniques for tackling small amounts of sample, rare cell types or difficult cell types which provide low yield of chromatin are usually long and complex, and involve DNA amplification or the spiking of samples with chromatin from another source.
