Great product and aways get great results!
Application Area: ChIP Assay
"The product is great and very easy to use for the ChIP assay and the customer service is very nice and response to questions is very quick. They replaced my ChIP Buffer I which I spilled by accident. It is worth spending money to buy their products. "

Easy to use with reproducible results.
Application Area:recruitment of transcription factors to chromatin
"The results are reproducible and the magnetic beads make the kit very easy to use. Recommend to all new labs starting to do ChIP assays."
ChIP-IT Express improves on traditional ChIP by reducing or eliminating several time-consuming steps.
Because the supplied magnetic beads have much lower background than traditional agarose beads, pre-clearing and blocking steps are no longer necessary. Washing is easier because the spin steps have been replaced by rapid magnetic pull-down. And, only 3 washes are required, as compared to 8 washes with traditional ChIP protocols. This dramatically reduces the amount of hands-on time during the assay. This not only saves time, but reducing the number of times the sample is manipulated minimizes DNA losses that can occur during wash steps, which helps improve yield as well as sample-to-sample consistency.
