Ann Arbor, MI, September 24, 2020 – Daicel Arbor Biosciences, a division of Chiral Technologies, Inc., announces the launch of their new line of myBaits Custom Methyl-Seq target capture kits. This new product line pairs an innovative methyl-seq probe design algorithm with a highly optimized target capture protocol to efficiently enrich target genes and markers of interest from converted methyl-seq NGS libraries. The hybridization capture technique significantly reduces per-sample sequencing costs compared to whole-genome bisulfite sequencing (WGBS) while preserving the essential strand-specific methylation signals.

myBaits Custom Methyl-Seq kits can be paired with either bisulfite or enzymatic-conversion workflows upstream of NGS library preparation, for seamless integration into your existing methyl-seq pipeline. All kits include the latest “v5” generation of myBaits hybridization and wash reagents, pairing best-ever performance with an easy-to-use protocol.

Introducing myBaits Custom Methyl-Seq hybridization capture kits, featuring:

Greater Savings Compared to WGBS
Specialized custom probe design algorithm
Optimized high-performance protocol
Dedicated support from expert scientists

“By offering this solution, Daicel Arbor Biosciences increases data and reduces sequencing costs by focusing next-generation sequencing coverage only on relevant genomic regions of interest,” said Alison Devault, Director of Genomics at Daicel Arbor Biosciences. “By sharpening this process, researchers using our product will be able to efficiently develop and expand their epigenetics research.”

Complimentary design and project development assistance will be provided from Daicel Arbor’s team of expert scientists to customers utilizing our DNA-Seq, RNA-Seq, or Methyl-Seq custom applications.
