Chromatrap® is delighted to allow Drosophila researchers to perform ChIP from their favourite genetic model organism.

Chromatrap® found by combining their optimised buffer chemistries for chromatin extraction and unique bead-free ChIP technology, so in simple terms, they have created a high sensitivity kit that is quicker and easier to use.

Drosophila research is prevalent in the field of genetic and epigenetic analysis, which is why Chromatrap® have created this kit to save researchers time and offer the best sensitivity on the market for processing Drosophila chromatin.

It is optimised for chromatic extraction protocol, perfect for low samples (ChIP from as little as five drosophila specimens), best for sensitivity and achieves results in 5 hours.

The first dedicated ChIP-Seq kit for Drosophila offers optimised protocols and buffer formulations for Drosophila ChIP-Seq. This unique kit contains all the reagents and components required to extract chromatin and perform immunoprecipitation for next-generation sequencing efficiently.

In a single optimised protocol, Chromatrap® combines their bead-free ChIP technology with proprietary buffer chemistries to enable fruit fly researchers to quickly and easily identify histone modifications and low abundant transcription factors with the highest sensitivity.

Chromatrap® provides you with a brief overview of points about the Chromatrap® Drosophila ChIP-Seq; they are as follows:

  • Unique Buffer Chemistry Developed for Drosophila
  • Preparation of high-quality chromatin from Drosophila tissues
  • Bead-free System for ChIP
  • Maximum capture of the antibody-chromatin complex
  • Spin column format
  • Optimised DNA purification reagents
  • High-quality NGS-ready ChIP DNA

Some of its features include:

  • Optimised Chromatin Extraction Protocol
  • The maximum yield of high-quality ChIP-ready chromatin from a range of Drosophila tissues.
  • Perfect for Low Samples
  • ChIP from as little as 5 Drosophila specimens
  • Best for Sensitivity
  • Correctly orientated proteins for maximum chromatin-antibody binding and capture
  • ChIP in 5 Hours
  • No lengthy blocking or overnight stops


As part of the Drosophila ChIP kit, Chromatrap® have also created a range of products, including DrosophilaUniqSeq, ChIP-Seq, Antibodies and Primer Sets.

The Chromatrap® kit allows you to perform ChIP and library preparation for next-generation sequencing sequentially. This kit contains all the reagents you need to efficiently extract chromatin from Drosophila tissues and obtain purified selectively enriched DNA to create high-quality complex libraries.

It is ready-to-sequence in under 8 hours, it has a superior bead-free system for ChIP and size selection, and it cost-effective, it comes with a complete kit.

It also contains all the reagents you need from start to finish. 24 ChIP’s, 24 library preparation, 12 indices. It is best for sensitivity — higher signal-to-noise due to inert filter and correctly orientated proteins.

Some more features mentioned on the Chromatrap® website include the following:

  • Validated in ChIP-Seq.
  • Prepare libraries from any ChIP sample
  • 1-tube reaction.
  • No clean-up required between reactions.
  • High-fidelity PCR mix.
  • Indexing primers for Illumina included.

There are many advantages associated with Chromatrap® Drosophila ChIP-seq such as its specific protocol and reagents for maximum recovery of high-quality ChIP-ready chromatin from Drosophila tissue. It has a low background due to the inert filter technology, and its fast protocol means there are no blocking steps or overnight incubations.
