Input requirements for ChIP DNA library preps.


It is not necessary to provide gel or Bioanalyzer documentation of ChIP sample size or quality, nor 260/280 or 260/230 ratios. However, it is necessary to document the size of input material used prior to immunoprecipitation.

If possible, please provide a concentration of the ChIP sample determined by a fluorometric method such as Qubit, as this will greatly increase your chances of obtaining a high-quality sequencing library. Do not use a Nanodrop instrument.

Note that ChIP samples must not contain salmon sperm DNA or other nucleic acid blocking agents.
