Overview of TAM-ChIP™ Technology

This short video provides an overview of the transposase-assisted multiplex ChIP (TAM-ChIP™) technology. TAM-ChIP™ is a robust, one-step method that combines the antibody-directed protein targeting of ChIP with Illumina-compatible next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation into a single step.

Protein G Agarose Prepacked Columns

Active Motif's ready-to-use, pre-washed, and pre-packed Protein G Agarose Columns have been specifically engineered to greatly reduce non-specific binding in ChIP assays. Simply add the ChIP reaction and perform the incubation and wash steps on the column to streamline the process and prevent any loss of material, offering a faster and more reproducible solution to centrifugation and magnetic separation methods.
