Efficient, ultra-sensitive chromatin mapping

The CUTANA™ ChIC / CUT&RUN assays developed by our partner EpiCypher leverage recent advancements in immunotethering technologies to deliver efficient, ultra-sensitive chromatin mapping capabilities. Compared to ChIP-seq, CUT&RUN offers clear advantages for epigenomic profiling.

  • Diverse target profiling : Histone PTMs and chromatin-interacting proteins (including remodelers)
  • Reduced cell input : Compatible with as few as 5,000 cells
  • Fresh, frozen, and cross-linked cells or nuclei
  • Low background: Fewer required sequencing reads per sample (3-5 million)
  • Cost-effective: Reliable, robust, streamlined workflow (from cells to data in < 4 days)
  • Go from cells to sequencing using CUTANA™ CUT&RUN and Library Prep Kits

How it works

The Cleavage Under Targets and Release Using Nuclease (CUT&RUN) method builds upon Chromatin ImmunoCleavage (ChIC) technology. In CUT&RUN, a fusion of protein A, protein G and micrococcal nuclease (pAG-Mnase) is used to selectively cleave antibody-labelled chromatin. This strategy eliminates immunoprecipitation steps, greatly simplifying the assay workflow. Clipped chromatin fragments are isolated from solution and used for NGS. The targeted enrichment of CUT&RUN allows for better signal-to-noise with only 3-5 million sequencing reads, significantly reducing sequencing costs vs ChIP-seq.

  • Cells-to-sequencing solution for chromatin mapping experiments when paired with CUTANA™ CUT&RUN Kit

CUTANA™ Compatible Antibodies

  • Available for various chromatin targets including histone PTMs, transcription factors, and chromatin remodelers
  • Lot-validated for robust performance in CUTANA™ CUT&RUN assays
  • 2 antibodies available for both CUT&RUN and CUT&Tag assays:
