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.
