Primers for ChIP

Efficient ChIP antibody validation with ChIP primer sets.

Why use ChIP primers?

  • Fast and easy - no need for validation.
  • Reliable method to test antibodies not yet validated in ChIP.
  • Controls for ChIP-grade antibodies.

All probes and primers may be purchased as a set or individually. Check out out ChIP kit or browse our selection of more than 400 ChIP-grade antibodies.


Housekeeping loci

These loci are constitutively transcribed in most cells lines at a relatively constant level. They can be used as a positive control for ChIP experiments assessing histone modifications present in the vicinity of actively transcribed gene promoters.

Tissue-specific loci

Tissue-specific genes are silenced in most cell lines they can be used as positive control loci for ChIP experiments assessing histone modifications present at inactive loci or as negative control loci for histone modifications that are absent from inactive loci.
