ChIP-Seq – Protein-DNA interaction studies

IonTorrent’s PGM enables a highly adaptive workflow allowing us to construct, sequence and align a high quality library from chromatin immune-precipitated DNA. The PGM workflow’s versatility provides outputs from 10Mb up to ≤ 1Gb, allowing us to accommodate your protein-DNA interaction study and provide you with the high quality data you need.

Sample Preparation

  • Chromatin immunoprecipitated DNA, unlinked, and purified.
  • Check quality by gel electrophoresis, or use an assay such as the Qubit, or a Bioanalyzer.

Sample Submission Guidelines

Consult your project manager for more specific instructions.
  • From 10 ng up to 100 ng total input (Send ≥ 2X your desired input)
  • Nuclease-free water ot 10 mM Tris, pH 7.5-8.5 to dilute samples.
  • Samples may be sent on dry ice if desired. But cold-packs are sufficient in most cases.

What to Send

  • Completed order form (click here to download)
  • Sample(s) that meet or exceed the relevant “Sample Submission Guidelines” for the appropriate application type.
  • Quantity / Quality data for your sample(s) (gel images, Bioanalyzer files etc…)
  • If pooling amplicons, please indicate the mass concentration of each pooled amplicon.
  • Payment, as discussed with your sales representative.
