With seemingly as many ChIP choices available as there are signs of the Zodiac, it can be tough to choose the best kit for you. So, if you’re feeling a little overwhelmed, consult the handy horoscope below to find your ChIP sign no matter your sample type or application:
Low Cell: You are able to see the importance of appreciating the small things in life. When others would give up, you persevere and make the best of what is available to you. You adhere to the motto – Quality over Quantity.
High Sensitivity: Detail-oriented and meticulous, the work you do is high quality every time. You also work well with others, successfully adapting to be compatible with whatever is thrown at you. You’re due for a big payout. Visit your nearest roulette wheel and put $10,000 on black. This risky move definitely won’t end badly.*
Express: Your magnetic personality and ability to complete tasks quickly have contributed to your recent success. You only interact with high quality individuals, and bring out the best in them. Broaden your horizons by picking up a new hobby. You’ve got time to kill. The final season of Game of Thrones doesn’t come out until 2019.
Express Enzymatic: You live a nonmaterialistic life. Your soul remains unburdened by expensive sonication instrumentation. This carefree lifestyle, combined with scientific advances, will allow you to live to the ripe old age of 198. But seriously, if you have a friend that is burdened by expensive sonication instrumentation, ask if you can borrow it. Sonication is the preferred shearing method, if possible.
TAG: You have trouble connecting, and commonly find that it is hard for others to recognize you. However, your uniqueness is your greatest advantage. Wait for someone who will make the effort to pick you up. It will be worth it.
FFPE: Your past is mysterious, but one thing is clear: you’re a little bit damaged. Practice self-love to free yourself from your carbonite prison. You’re not alone. There are literally thousands just like you, sitting around waiting for their potential to be unlocked.
PBMC: You have developed a tough, protective shell, but it would benefit you to let others in. When you encounter a big obstacle this week, go with the flow. There may be a little bloodshed, but it will be good for you in the end.
