TruSeq-Methyl Capture EPIC Library Prep Kit (48 samples, 12 indexes)


Product Highlights

Targeted methylation sequencing (Methyl-Seq) offers a balanced, cost-effective choice between whole-genome bisulfite sequencing and methylation arrays that can support both screening and biomarker discovery study objectives.1 TruSeq Methyl Capture EPIC Library Prep supports researchers seeking a deeper understanding of the role of methylation in gene regulation.

Comprehensive methylation-site content: Offers significantly higher coverage of emerging epigenetic regions of interest compared to other Methyl-Seq kits currently on the market (See Supporting Data section, Epigenetic Regions Covered).

Maximize discovery power, minimize cost: Efficiently query differentially methylated bases to conserve research dollars.

Convenient kit configuration: Includes bisulfite conversion, library prep, target enrichment, and purification reagents in a single kit for hassle-free ordering.

User-friendly data analysis: Analyze sequence data in BaseSpace Sequence Hub with methylation apps designed for biologists.
