Product Highlights

With the Infinium MethylationEPIC BeadChip Kit, researchers can interrogate over 850,000 methylation sites quantitatively across the genome at single-nucleotide resolution. Multiple samples, including FFPE, can be analyzed in parallel to deliver high-throughput power while minimizing the cost per sample.

Infinium HD array technology enables content selection independent of bias-associated limitations often associated with methylated DNA capture methods. The result is a pan-enhancer and coding region view of the methylome that can be used for epigenome-wide association studies on a variety of human tissues.

Comprehensive Genome-Wide Coverage

This kit includes the following content categories requested by methylation experts:

  • CpG sites outside of CpG islands
  • Non-CpG methylated sites identified in human stem cells (CHH sites)
  • Differentially methylated sites identified in tumor versus normal
  • FANTOM5 enhancers
  • ENCODE open chromatin and enhancers
  • DNase hypersensitive sites
  • miRNA promoter regions
  • > 90% of content contained on the Illumina HumanMethylation450K BeadChip
