CUTANA™ CUT&Tag Core Reagents Bundle

SKU: 14-1101
Pack Size: 50 Reactions


The CUTANA™ CUT&Tag Core Reagents Bundle brings together the essential components of a CUT&Tag kit, offering a significant cost savings over purchasing each individual reagent. Detailed instructions for using the bundled reagents can be found in the EpiCypher CUT&Tag protocol. Included are ConA magnetic beads for immobilizing nuclei or cells, control antibodies, anti-rabbit secondary antibody, spike-in controls, pAG-Tn5 for antibody-targeted chromatin tagmentation, and PCR master mix for library amplification. The positive and negative control antibodies (H3K4me3, IgG) can be paired with the SNAP-CUTANA™ K-MetStat Panel of spike-in controls for assay optimization and reaction monitoring.

Some necessary reagents including CUT&Tag assay buffers, primers, and DNA purification beads are not included in the bundle (see Required Materials Not Supplied). For detailed buffer recipes, multiplexing primer sequences and recommended vendors, see the CUT&Tag protocol.

The EpiCypher CUT&Tag protocol is compatible with a variety of inputs, though nuclei are preferred to reduce mitochondrial background. While it is recommended to start with 100,000 cells, comparable data can be generated using as few as 1,000 cells. CUT&Tag provides robust results when profiling histone post-translational modifications (PTMs), but is not recommended for chromatin associated proteins (CAPs). The inclusion of controls, low cell tolerance, and robust PTM profiling potential make the CUT&Tag bundle the ideal choice for experienced users looking for high throughput chromatin mapping. For new users, projects mapping CAPs, or projects mapping histone PTMs where >5,000 cells / sample can be attained, check out the CUTANA™ ChIC/CUT&RUN Kit (EpiCypher 14-1048) for an all-inclusive and robust epigenomic profiling solution.
