General description

Imprint Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Kit provides a complete solution for Chromatin Immunoprecipitation including columns and reagents for DNA purification and an integrated protocol for ChIP DNA amplification with our GenomePlex® Whole Genome Amplification Kit (WGA2) . The flexible format allows for immunoprecipitation and purification of DNA from mammalian cells or tissue in a convenient strip-well format.

For Frequently Asked Questions about this kit, please see ChIP Troubleshooting Questions.


The Imprint Chromatin Immunoprecipitation Kit is a flexible, rapid and complete method for investigating protein-DNA interactions by chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP).
  • Suitable for downstream applications
  • Individual target characterization to genome-wide profiling techniques
  • Characterization of signal transduction pathways
  • Verification of ChIp-chIP and ChIP-seq data

Features and Benefits

  • Fast—Total protocol time of less than 6 hours making the Imprint kit the fastest on the market
  • Sensitive—As few as 10,000 cells required for each ChIP sample
  • Convenient—Fewest steps of any available ChIP protocol
  • Flexible—Protocols for cells or tissue, and convenient strip-well format for high-throughput applications
  • Complete—Includes columns and reagents for DNA purification as well as an integrated protocol for amplification with the GenomePlex technology
