Please see our newest bisulfite conversion kit, Cells-to-CpG™ Bisulfite Conversion System, designed to provide more flexibility in starting samples without the need to purify your DNA and more confidence with available methylation controls. Cells-to-CpG™ is completely validated for Life Technologies' downstream platforms and replaces MethylCode™ as the bisulfite conversion kit of choice.

The MethylCode™ Bisulfite Conversion Kit is a fast and easy way to convert unmethylated cytosines from a DNA sample into uracils while methylated cytosines remain unchanged.

The modified DNA is ideal for PCR amplification for downstream analyses, including restriction endonuclease digestion, sequencing, and microarrays. With the MethylCode™ Bisulfite Conversion Kit you can expect:

–Simple, rapid cytosine methylation detection

–Consistency across most experimental conditions
–Streamlined conversion of unmethylated cytosines into uracil, thanks to a coupled DNA denaturation/bisulfite treatment step
–Ultra-pure DNA ideal for subsequent molecular-based analyses

Kit specifications:

–Protocol: Rapid heat denaturation of DNA followed by sodium bisulfite modification with spin column purification

–Sample sources: Plasmid, genomic, and endonuclease digested DNAs
–Input DNA: 500 pg-2 µg DNA per treatment, with 200-500 ng being optimal
–Recovery volume: Purified, bisulfite-treated DNA is recovered in 10 µl elution buffer
