Default Sonication innefective?



Hello everyone,

I'm not sure what is happening with my procedure so I need your ideas if you please.

I'm working with 25x10^6 293T cells concentratred in 1mL. I need this amount to the ChIP assay.

When I go to sonicate, and I'm testing different conditions, I only get smears higher than 1000bp.
I tested different cells concentration: 12x10^6 and 5x10^6
I'm working in the maximum power p/10 seconds avoiding overheating the samples.
I didnīt test the % duty cicle, but I will...

But anyone have another idea? I need 200bp fragments.

Thanks

Default Re: Sonication innefective?

Hello everyone,

For the 61 views until today and no answers, here is the answer:

Is the formaldehyde %.
I'm using 1%.

I tested 0,2%; 0,4%; 0,6%; 0,8%. With 0,8% i get my 200 bp bands and the CHIP worked.

Hope that this could help anyone.
