EZ DNA Methylation-Lightning Automation Kit
EZ DNA Methylation-Lightning Automation Kit
- Automation-specific streamlined design for high-throughput bisulfite conversion of DNA for methylation analysis.
- Compatible with Illumina® Infinium™ MethylationEPIC, HTS iSelect® Methyl Custom, and Mouse Methylation arrays.
- Optimized buffer volumes for consistent automation performance.
The EZ DNA Methylation-Lightning Automation Kit is a high-throughput DNA bisulfite conversion kit designed for streamlining automation workflows. It is recommended for several downstream Illumina® Infinium® products such as MethylationEPIC, HTS iSelect® Methyl Custom, and Mouse Methylation BeadChip Arrays. This automation-specific kit features optimized buffer volumes for consistent performance on all open platform liquid handlers and magnetic bead transfer automated systems. Verified automation scripts are readily available for use on the Hamilton Microlab® STAR™/STARlet™, Thermo Fisher Scientific KingFisher™ Flex, and Tecan Fluent®.

Q1: What is the difference between the EZ DNA Methylation-Lightning Automation Kit and EZ-96 DNA Methylation-Lightning MagPrep Kit?
The EZ DNA Methylation-Lightning automation kit features optimized buffer volumes that allow for consistent high-throughput automation performance.
Q2: Do you offer scripts for instruments not listed in the protocol?
While we do not offer scripts for non-verified instruments, we can provide general technical support for any automation instrument.
Q3: Can I create my own script instead?
Yes, we provide a guideline for users to create their own script in the protocol.
Q4: How to quantify converted DNA?
For best results, keep the method of quantification consistent before and after bisulfite treatment:
- If quantifying with a NanoDrop, use dsDNA settings (50 μg/ml for Ab260 = 1.0) before treatment and use RNA settings (40 μg/ml for Ab260 = 1.0) after treatment.
- If quantifying with Qubit, use a dsDNA assay before treatment and use a ssDNA assay after treatment.
Q5: How to visualize converted DNA?
Following bisulfite treatment, DNA will be single stranded with limited non-specific base pairing at room temperature. To visualize, run the converted DNA on an agarose gel then chill the gel on ice or in an ice bath for 30 minutes. This will force enough base-pairing to allow intercalation of the ethidium bromide for the DNA to be visible. If using a Bioanalyzer or TapeStation instrument, use RNA kits and reagents to visualize the converted DNA.
Q6: How long is bisulfite converted DNA stable at -20°C?
Converted DNA eluted in M-Elution Buffer can generally be stored at -20°C for 1-3 months. If longer term storage is necessary, we recommend storing at or below -70°C if possible. Bisulfite converted DNA is less stable than dsDNA; for best results, minimize freeze-thawing of converted DNA and use as soon as possible for downstream analysis.
