Transcription Factor Binding Studies with IP-Star® Compact Automated System from Diagenode
29 Oct 2014
ChIP experiments require long and multi-step protocols, and the risk of introducing inconsistency is very high. The goal of this experiment was to confirm the findings from ChIP sequencing by using an automated ChIP technology in order to reduce all inconsistency introduced by the pipetting variations and human variability. This application note presents high sensitivity automated ChIP experiments to study transcriptional regulation and siRNA technology. The study used the Bioruptor UCD-300-TO with associated reagents for chromatin preparation and the SX-8G IP-Star® Compact Automated System with associated reagents for ChIP and an ETO antibody for the immunoprecipitation step.
