Are my ConA beads okay to use?
ConA beads are crucial to the CUT&RUN workflow. They should be stored at 4˚C, appear brown in color, and be easily mixed by gentle vortexing or pipetting.
- Do NOT use ConA beads that have been frozen - this damages beads.
- Do NOT use ConA beads that appear black, granular, or clumpy.
- Activated ConA beads should be kept on ice and used within four hours of activation.
