Dovetail™ Hi-C Kit

The Dovetail™ Hi-C Kit uses a single restriction enzyme (DpnII) for chromatin fragmentation prior to proximity ligation. The kit provides all the reagents necessary for performing the proximity ligation steps on animal, plant and prokaryotic samples prior to NGS library generation. The kit is compatible with the Dovetail™ Library Module for Illumina (Cat # 25004) and 3rd party standard paired-end library preparation kits for Illumina sequencing.


Validated SamplesMammalian cells, Mammalian tissues, nucleated blood, non-nucleated blood, young plant leaves, insects
LabellingResearch Use Only
Application(s)Genome Assembly, chromatin conformation analysis, and structural variation detection

Key Benefits

The Dovetail™ Hi-C Kit offers the following key benefits:

  • Proven Hi-C chemistry well accepted in the genome assembly and chromatin conformation research fields
  • 6 hour protocol with less than 3 hours hands-on time easily adopted by molecular biology and genomics labs
  • Single source kit containing specialized reagents necessary to perform the proximity ligation portion of the protocol (customer provides formaldehyde, EtOH, RNase/DNase free water and SPRIselect beads).
