Quality Level


Magna ChIP®


immunoprecipitation (IP): suitable

General description

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation (ChIP) is an important technique allowing the researcher to analyze in vivo interactions of proteins with genomic DNA. Any chromatin-associated or DNA binding protein can be analyzed with this technique, provided a good antibody to the protein exists. One can measure different proteins localized to a specific region of the genome, or the genome wide distribution of a specific protein. Another powerful application of this technique is to analyze changes in histone modifications that correlate with processes like transcription, mitosis or DNA repair.


Single day chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) kit containing all necessary reagents to perform 22 individual chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) reactions using magnetic A beads.

Features and Benefits

  • Faster:Magnetic protein A beads allow for the entire ChIP protocol to be done in as little as a day! All reagents to process your samples are included - you don′t have to spend valuable time making them.
  • Easier: Spin columns make DNA purification easier and more reliable - no more messy phenol-chloroform extractions.


Two boxes containing all necessary reagents to perform 22 individual chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) reactions. Supplied buffers are sufficient to generate chromatin from up to five 15 cm plates of cultured cells, each plate providing up to 10 chromatin preparations (varies with cell and assay type).
