A few years ago, researchers performing bisulfite conversion in their DNA methylation studies had a nice break in their bench routine compliments of a 3-hour to overnight incubation during the conversion process. Well we’re sorry to inform you…but Zymo Research just introduced the DNA Methylation-Lightning™ Kit, which takes that incubation down to an hour. Great news for lab productivity. Bad news for your Words with Friends habit.
Complete Bisulfite Conversion in 1 Hour
First it was the 1-hour photo, then dry cleaning. Now bisulfite conversion has joined the ranks of the ultra-speedy delivery that today’s consumers demand. The star of the show is Zymo’s Lightning Conversion Reagent, which provides an instant coffee-like experience to your bench. Just add it to your DNA sample. Then you’re free to grab lunch (not included in the kit), but make it quick because your samples should be fully converted in one hour.
The only thing that’s reduced in this Reduced Representation Bisulfite Sequencing plot is the time required to get this data.
Bisulfite Conversion that Scales from 0 to 96 in 60 Minutes
What would you do if you could convert your samples in an hour? Maybe bring that lab notebook up to date? Perhaps take in a few more recent publications? Great options, but why not run more samples? The EZ-96 DNA Methylation-Lightning™ MagPrep Kit combines the speed and simplicity of the DNA Methylation-Lightning™ Kits in an automation-friendly format that will have your lab churning through more samples than Costco.
Try Lightning Free
Validating a new kit can be intimidating some, so Zymo is meeting researchers halfway by offering free samples of the DNA Methylation-Lightning™ Kits. Just look for the “Sample Available,” and you’ll have a sample kit on your bench in no time.
