Introduction
The Diagenode SX-8G IP-Star® Automated System automates immunoprecipitation and
increases reproducibility
Diagenode, the leading provider of complete solutions for epigenetics research, offers a variety of end-to-end systems to
streamline DNA methylation and chromatin immunoprecipitation workflows. Central to this full offering is Diagenode’s
Automated Systems, simple yet robust automated bench-top instruments that standardize different epigenetic
applications (i.e. ChIP, MeDIP or MethylCap). Diagenode designed these automation systems to make ChIP and DNA
methylation studies accessible and reproducible, and ensure consistent data in every experiment.
Diagenode Automated Systems will produce consistent results from any operator regardless of the day, the experimental
run, or the lab. Robust and reproducible results is a major goal of today’s high resolution epigenomic studies.
Diagenode Automated Platforms replace the numerous manual, error-prone steps of complex epigenetic applications
with a reliable, highly consistent and automated process that requires minimal operator intervention. We empower
researchers to simplify the tedious protocols and the complexity of many epigenetic protocols. In addition, Diagenode
Automated Systems minimize sample carryover, data variability, and costly errors. The platforms offer full workflow
support for epigenetics research, utilizing our complete kits and laboratory-validated protocols to rapidly deliver highquality and consistent data.
Auto IPure kit
Diagenode’s Auto IPure kit is the only DNA purification kit using magnetic beads, that is specifically optimized for
extracting DNA from ChIP and MeDIP (Chromatin IP and Methylated DNA IP) experiments.
It’s a simple and straightforward protocol that delivers pure DNA ready for any downstream application (e.g. next
generation sequencing). This approach guarantees a minimal loss of DNA and reaches significantly higher yields than
a column purification (see results page…). Comparing to phenol-chloroform extraction, the IPure technology has the
advantage of being nontoxic and much easier to be carried out on multiple samples. The use of the magnetic beads
allows for a clear separation of DNA and increases therefore the reproducibility of your DNA purification.
Diagenode’s IP-Star system uses the principle of bead-based
magnetic separation. Magnetic beads bound with chromatin or DNA
are brought to the inner wall of the tip when a strong magnetic force
is applied. This differs from other systems that collect the bound
DNA on the bottom of a reaction well, resulting in cleaner assays
and less carryover.

SX-8G IP-Star® and SX-8G IP-Star® Compact Systems
for automation of epigenetic applications
Diagenode has developed two automated platforms (SX-8G IP-Star® and SX-8G IP-Star® Compact) designed to increase
your lab’s productivity, efficiency and experimental reproducibility. The two automated platforms are capable of processing
up to 16 samples per cycle. The automated systems processes sheared chromatin (or DNA) to deliver purified DNA ready
for qPCR, amplification, microarray and sequencing analysis. Both, the SX-8G IP-Star® and SX-8G IP-star® Compact
have an easy-to-use open software that provides you with flexibility. This allows you to create your personal protocol
according to your specific needs.

Improved reproducibility
Our SX-8G IP-Star will increase the immunoprecipitation reproducibility between IPs performed by the same as well as
by different operators (see figure 1 and 2 below). Reagents (Antibodies, buffers,...) and sheared chromatin were identical
for “ManChIP” and “AutoChIP”. The SX-8G IP-Star Automated system removes variation that can be created by manual
handling and allows you to optimize and standardize your assay within a lab. The SX-8G IP-Star is designed to improve
the accuracy and the reproducibility of any immunoprecipitiation experiment.

MeDIP assays were performed using the MagMeDIP kit (cat# mc-magme-048). The immunoprecipitated samples were
purified with the IPure technology and two competitor kits (competitor Q and Z). The purified DNA was eluted in 50 μl of
water and quantified with a Nanodrop.

Methyl DNA IP results obtained with our Auto MeDIP Kit and after DNA purification using the Auto IPure kit
Methyl DNA IP assays were performed using DNA from U2OS cells and the Auto MeDIP kit (Diagenode). After MeDIP,
the DNA was purified using the Auto IPure kit. Experiments were run in the IP-Star following Diagenode’s protocols.
The IP was performed by including the kit internal controls: together with the human DNA sample. The internal positive
and negative DNA controls included in the IP assay are methylated DNA (meDNA) and unmethylated DNA (unDNA).
As positive and negative control regions, a non methylated region in the GAPDH promoter and the methylated region
of TSH2B were tested. Results showed 4 different AutoMeDIP-Auto IPure experiments run in the IP-Star automated
system.

SX-8G IP-Star shows abnormal movement
when a protocol is started
The pipettor head may have lost its home position. In the Software, select “Manual
Operation/Home”. After confirming that the pipettor head moves to the home
position, run the protocol again.
Aspirated liquid drips from the disposable
tips
Dripping is acceptable when ethanol is being handled. For other liquids: air is leaking
from the syringe pumps. Grease or replace the O-rings. If the problem persists,
contact DIAGENODE Technical Services.
