EZ-96 DNA Methylation-Lightning MagPrep
D5046 / D5047
- High-throughput procedure for automated rapid and complete bisulfite conversion of DNA for methylation analysis.
- Ready-to-use conversion reagent is added directly to DNA.
- High-yield, converted DNA is ideal for PCR, Methylation Specific PCR (MSP), arrays, library preps, Next-Generation sequencing, etc.
The EZ-96 DNA Methylation-Lightning MagPrep Kit is the fastest magnetic bead-based DNA bisulfite conversion kit for high-throughput and automated methylation analysis. No preparation is necessary with the ready-to-use conversion reagent - simply add this unique reagent to a DNA sample and incubate the reaction for about one hour. Desulphonation and clean-up of the converted DNA is performed while bound to the MagBinding Beads. This magnetic bead-based bisulfite conversion kit produces the highest yields of bisulfite-converted DNA that is ideal for PCR, arrays, library preps, and Next-Generation sequencing.

|Sample Source||Purified genomic DNA, endonuclease-digested DNA, linearized plasmid DNA, etc. DNA should be high-quality and RNA-free.|
Q1: Tips for bisulfite primer design?
Q2: Is an incubation with desulphonation buffer for longer than 20 minutes recommended?
Q3: Does bisulfite conversion only occur in a CpG context?
Q4: Which polymerase is recommended for amplification from bisulfite converted DNA?
Q5: What is the minimum DNA size that can be recovered?
Q6: How to quantify / visualize converted DNA?
Q7: What leads to poor conversion efficiency/ low yields?
