The Department owns a Diagenode IP-Star Compact automated system, along with an associated Bioruptor unit. The IP-Star was obtained primarily as an automated ChIP system. However the IP-Star is also suitable for automated DNA methylation protocols and samples generated on the system are compatible with other downstream applications include QPCR, microarrays and next generation sequencing. The IP-Star machine is sited in the main Level 5 equipment room.
New users must register with Dr Jane Goodall to use the machine and be trained in its use. Users of the machine need to source and supply their own plastics and reagent consumables for experimental runs. There is an electronic booking calendar to book time on the machine
The manual for the machine is available as a PDF.
