The chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) assay uses an antibody to bind a specific protein or modified protein. In the assay, chromatin regions associated with this protein are captured for analysis, typically with qPCR or sequencing.
Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) grade antibodies are key to a successful ChIP assay. We provide an extensive range of ChIP antibody products that have been tested and validated for ChIP-PCR, ChIP-chip, and ChIP-seq and are cited in thousands of scientific publications. We also provide ChIP assay kits for the simple set-up of your chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments and useful ChIP protocols to guide you through every step from sample preparation to troubleshooting.
Antibody validation – all of our ChIP-grade antibodies are carefully validated. We have also developed recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibodies for chromatin immunoprecipitation so that you can expect exactly the same performance year-after-year.
Optimization – ChIP assay optimization can be very challenging. To help you get the best results from your first ChIP assay, we provide easy-to-use ChIP kits.
Good protocols – Choose the right ChIP assay protocol for your experiment by reviewing our protocols, guides, and tips for success with ChIP.
Find out about the different epigenetic factors which require analysis by ChIP and determine which ChIP method is right for you with our comprehensive ChIP guide.
Learn some of the latest and most advanced ChIP assay techniques, including ChIP-loop, ChIA-PET, ChIP-exo, and ChIP-BS-seq.
Learn how to prepare chromatin from tissues so that you can subsequently use it for your next ChIP experiment.
Adjust your ChIP workflow for low input samples with these novel strategies that allow you to increase enrichment efficiency and minimize sample loss.
