Quest 5-hmC DNA ELISA Kit


  • Sensitive and specific detection of 5-hydroxymethlycytosine (5-hmC) from a variety of samples
  • Ideal for global 5-hmC quantitation and high throughput screening
  • Streamlined workflow can be completed in 3 hrs


The Quest 5-hmC DNA ELISA Kit is both sensitive and specific and can be used to accurately detect 5-hmC DNA in a variety of samples. The kit is compatible with a wide range of input DNA including intact vertebrate, plant, and microbial genomic DNA, as well as enzyme-digested and mechanically sheared fragments. The Control DNA Set included with this kit has been calibrated to accurately quantify the percent 5-hmC in sample DNA by use of a standard curve. Also, the fast, streamlined workflow is ideal when analyzing/screening large numbers of samples.

Technical Specifications
