There comes a time in every researcher’s career when you need to step up the throughput, but the thought of high throughput ChIP can be paralyzing. “How much sample is this going to cost me?” “What happens if something goes wrong…that’s 96 samples!”
The first thing you want to look for when transitioning to high throughput ChIP Seq is a system that works well in low throughput. It might sound crazy, but plenty of researchers jump right into the high throughput razzle-dazzle before verifying their system is performing well in a low throughput scenario.
We’ve filled you in before on the core Chromatrap® ChIP Seq technology and how its sensitivity and broad dynamic range allow you to tackle some of the more challenging research scenarios like:
- Analyzing primary cells
- Studying low abundant transcription factors
Now the Chromatrap® system is available in 96 well format for high throughput settings as well.
96 ChIP Assays in a Day
The Chromatrap® ChIP assay started off in the low throughput space, but was always destined for the fast lane of 96 well analyses. The solid-state filter-based technology practically begged for plates.
Now researchers can run the Chromatrap® ChIP Seq assays in 96 well format, opening up the ability to look at multiple cell types, multiple antibody and gene targets.
I would say that it will be the easiest ChIP-Seq experiment that you have ever done! Everyone should give it a try!
