EPIC Array

The Infinium methylation EPIC array allows the interrogation of methylation patterns at the genome-wide level, covering more than 850,000 methylation sites. This array has shown to be very popular and is an ideal solution for epigenome-wide association studies even for FFPE samples.

For a more detailed description of the array, please read this Illumina's document.



The protocol is similar to the genotyping Infinium HD assay. The Infinium methylation assay detects cytosine methylation at CpG islands based on highly multiplexed genotyping of bisulfite-converted genomic DNA.
