Default Alternative DNA elution for ChIPseq

Dear all,
I am performing ChIPseq experiments, and I am looking for an alternative for phenol-chloroform-isoamylalcohol elution/precipitation after the IP. I have tried Qiagen columns, but the recovery is 1/10 of phenol:chloroform:isoamylalcohol (measured by Qubit) . As I am quite restricted in starting material I cannot use more . Does anyone of you have experience with AMPURE XP beads at this step? I am wondering whether they will preform well, as DNA concentration is rather low (should be ~0.05 ng/Ál at this step), and size is rather low as well (50 to >1000 bp, but enrichment between 100 - 500 bp).

Reasons that I want to omit the phenol stuff is problems with automated subsequent library preparation caused by tiniest amounts of residual phenol, and that I am pregnant.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Diagenode IPure works well for me; the only downside is that you recover more background crap so you may want to be a bit more stringent in your washes.
It's cheaper than the Qiagen per reaction too and does not perform any size selection.

Ampure works with low conc (I have sucessfully used it for library preps where it was below the Qubit detection limit) but I am not sure if recovery is affected by the SDS concentration in the elution buffer. I would try with a lower elution volume (eg 50 ul), and perhaps test the recovery with some input DNA at varying concentration in IPEB first.

I use Diagenode IPure after ChIP and MeDIP. My concentration is usually 1 ng per Ál after MeDIP but i managed to purify a fragment of 350 bp at the concentration of 2.7 ng in 100 Ál with a recovery of 75% compare to phenol-chloroform. Moreover, the elution buffer of IPure kit doesn’t contain any detergent and salt which is useful for any downstream application like library preparation. Based on my own experience, I did not observe any increased background when comparing IPure to Qiagen column purification for the H3K4me3 histone mark.
