The ChIP assay /chromatin immunoprecipitation assay uses an antibody to bind a specific protein or modified protein. In the assay, whichever regions of chromatin that protein is associated with 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 which are cited in thousands of scientific publications. We also provide ChIP assay kits to make setting up your chromatin immunoprecipitation experiment easy, 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 you can expect exactly the same performance year-after-year.
Optimization – ChIP assay optimization can be very challenging, to help you with this we provide easy-to-use ChIP kits, to help you get the best results from your first ChIP assay.
Good protocols – Choose the right ChIP assay protocol for your experiment by reviewing our protocols, guides, and tips for success with ChIP.
