Porvair Sciences has introduced the first commercial ChIP kit range dedicated to Drosophila. 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 optimized 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 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.
