Epigenetics Research Tools

Epigenetics Research Tools

Innovative technologies and products to facilitate epigenetics research and expand the potential for biomarker discovery

Epigenetics is the study of chromatin-based phenomena and heritable changes in gene expression that do not involve changes to the underlying DNA sequence - a change in phenotype without a change in genotype. Epigenetic change is a regular and natural occurrence but can also be influenced by several factors including age, the environment/lifestyle and disease state. Researchers can start out with little more than DNA, histone proteins or chromatin and investigate fascinating topics such as cancer epigenetics, neuropsychiatric disorders, nutritional development, metabolic diseases and more.
Innovative technologies and products developed by our partners Epigentek and EpiCypher including kits for the analysis of DNA methylation and chromatin remodeling are offered.

Sample Preparation Kits

Benefit from rapid and efficient preparation of DNA, proteins and chromatin.

DNA Methylation Kits

Choose from a large number of kits developed for gene-specific or global DNA methylation analysis.

RNA Methylation Kits

Analyze m6A or 5-mC RNA methylation in total RNA samples isolated from cells or tissue.

Histone Modification Kits

Screen and measure up to 21 different H3 or 10 different H4 modifications in ELISA-like kits.

Histone Peptide Arrays

Screen effector protein, antibody and enzyme interactions with 296 combinatorially-modified and biotinylated histone peptides.

Histone Modification Peptides

Choose from the largest selection of histone peptides, many modifications, single or multiple.

Purified and Recombinant Nucleosomes

Employ fully defined and homogeneous recombinant nucleosomes incorporating different DNA and histone modifications, site mutations, and histone variants. More than 70 post translational modifications (PTM) available.

Chromatin Immunoprecipitation

Gain further insight into the dynamic interactions between transcription proteins and components of chromatin by using chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP).

EpiDyne Chromatin Remodeling Assay Substrates

Study chromatin remodeling using EpiDyne nucleosome substrates available for three readouts: Restriction Enzyme Accessibility (REA), FRET and Radiometric DAM methyltransferase assays.

Site-specific Chromatin Loop Formation by dCas9

Study the dynamic effects of chromatin structure on gene expression.

Next Generation Sequencing Kits

Construct high-quality NGS libraries from low quantity or difficult samples for Genomic DNA Seq, DNA Bisulfite Seq, ChIP Seq, Post Bisulfite Seq or RNA Bisulfite Seq.
