Product News: Porvair Sciences Introduces High-Performance Drosophila ChIP Kits

This new range of kits is said to deliver high-quality ChIP-ready chromatin from as little as 5 Drosophila specimens

19 Jun 2019


Porvair Sciences has introduced the first commercial ChIP kit range dedicated to Drosophila (fruit fly). Benefiting from proprietary bead-free ChIP technology, these new kits deliver high-quality ChIP-ready chromatin from as little as 5 Drosophila specimens and from a range of Drosophila tissues.

The fruit fly (Drosophila) is a very widely used model organism for genetic and epigenetic research. However, until now, researchers have had few research protocols at their disposal.

With this new development, Porvair Sciences now offers a single optimised Chromatrap® kit with unique buffers and components for Drosophila chromatin extraction and ChIP. Incorporating correctly orientated capture proteins throughout the inert filter-based ChIP technology, the new Drosophila kits offer outstanding sensitivity which is especially important for the detection of binding of low abundant targets.  Coupling these advantages with the well documented benefits of bead-free ChIP assay technology provides Drosophila researchers with an easy, sensitive workflow that can be completed in less than 5 hours.

The new Chromatrap range includes Drosophila UniqSeq, ChIP-Seq, Antibodies and Primer Sets.

Chromatrap® is a brand of Porvair Sciences Ltd. with R&D and production laboratories based in the UK. Their extensive product range includes ChIP kits, DNA clean up kits and other innovative products for the life science market. With over thirty publications - Chromatrap® bead-free ChIP technology is rapidly becoming the method of choice for highly sensitive, quick and easy ChIP assays.
