Chromatrap® Your Chromatin!


We are pleased to present you with Chromatrap®*, a revolutionary solid-state platform from the UK that enables more efficient, sensitive and robust chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP).

Compared to current methods, the following are what makes Chromatrap® superior:

Unlike bead-based ChIP, Chromatrap eliminates common manual handling problems and the need for time-consuming blocking steps to reduce non-specific binding. In under 5 hours from chromatin loading to qPCR or sequencing, Chromatrap significantly reduces the assay time for ChIP, enabling more samples to be analysed increasing laboratory throughput and efficiency.

  • Highly sensitive – Perfect for low abundant proteins and transcription factors
  • Low background – No pre-blocking required
  • Reduced IP times – ChIP in under 5hrs
  • Less manual handling – Reduced errors and sample loss
  • Wide dynamic range – ChIP from as little as 1000 cells
  • High throughput capability – Test multiple samples, antibodies and gene targets

Cost-efficient solution – Save precious antibody

How does Chromatrap perform in the laboratory?

  • Target enrichment typically 6x greater with Chromatrap
  • Target enrichment typically 15-20x greater with Chromatrap
  • Best signal-to-noise of any kit at low chromatin loadings
  • 2-3x higher signal-to-noise than bead-based methods
  • Less non-specific binding
Shorter protocol, higher chromatin yields
  • Wider dynamic range: 500ng - 50μg chromatin
  • Less manual handling & increased binding capacity within column
  • No DNA clean up required for qPCR
  • Perform several ChIP assays from a single sample

More than just ChIP kits
Besides providing ChIP kits for both low and high-throughput qPCR and sequencing, Chromatrap® also offers more specialised ChIP kits for FFPE and native chromatin, ChIP antibodies and primers, reagents and buffers, as well as DNA purification products to meet various user requirements.
About Chromatrap®: Porvair Sciences is part of Porvair plc, a specialist filtration company listed on the London Stock Exchange. They are one of the largest manufacturers of Ultra-Clean microplates, 96-Well Filter Plates and Microplate handling equipment for life science and synthetic chemistry, with over 25 years of experience in microplate manufacturing.

The potential of the patented filter used in Chromatrap® was first noticed by academics at Essex University and later developed in collaboration with Swansea University’s medical school.

In an academic/industrial partnership, the product range was developed to offer a faster, more sensitive method of chromatin immunoprecipitation. From an initial kit designed for PCR analysis, the technology has been developed into a full product range, particularly suited to small or low abundant biological samples.

The range is manufactured in Porvair’s bioscience facilities in North Wales and sold globally.

At day 1 to 6, cell viability was assayed using Trypan blue exclusion assay (A) and IgG3-Fc production was assayed by protein G affinity quantification (HPLC) (B) and Western Blot (C). Standard (C) corresponds to purified IgG3-Fc (34 kDa).

Suspension CHO cells were seeded at 1 x 106 cells/ml in 30 ml of CHO medium and transfected using 3 different lots of FectoPROTM (CCIII 078, CCIII 104 or CCIII 106) following the standard protocol. 72 h after transfection, IgG3-Fc production was assayed by protein G affinity quantification.

Newly Added Growth Factors


Growth factors and stem cell reagents have an important role in cancer and developmental research. GoldBio’s growth factors have continued to explode on the marketplace, which is why they are so excited to announce that they are expanding this product line! Currently, more than 100 new growth factors have been added to their pre-existing list, and they plan to add more throughout the year.So stay tuned for more great offers!

They have added new EGFs, PDGFs, Cytokines, FGFs, Interleukins, and Neurotrophic factors as well as a completely new category: Interferons. These additions were based on your feedback and requests and they’re excited that they can provide you with even more of the products they need at the same great rates that GoldBio has been providing for years!



The FGF family of proteins is one of the largest polypeptide growth factor families in the animal kingdom, found in organisms ranging from nematodes to humans. FGFs are involved with embryonic development, angiogenesis, wound healing, metabolic regulation and cancer. GoldBio’s selection of growth factors includes 25 FGFs, with the line continuing to grow. Among the newly added FGFs are FGF4, FGF13, FGF19 and FGF21.


Interleukins are a large family of cytokines which are soluble hormone-like mediators of the immune system. They involved in processes of cell activation, cell differentiation, proliferation and cell-to-cell interactions. The expression of interleukins is strictly regulated. For example, the factors are often not secreted constitutively. GoldBio offers a large catalog of interleukins, with new additions: IL1A, IL1RN, IL2 Cys141Ser, IL5, IL8, IL9,IL17B, IL21 and IL36B.


Neurotrophic factors are involved in many roles of the CNS beyond growth and development. They are responsible for the maintenance and survival of neurons and have been the subject of extensive research. There is continued interest in the research of potential neurotrophic factor therapies, which may help treat Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. GoldBio offers high-quality recombinant neurotrophic factors. Our newest additions to the line include CDNF, CNTF, GMFB, MANF, MDK, NRG1-alpha, NRG1-beta1, NRG1-beta2, NRN1, PSPN and PTN.


Interferons are a family of cytokine proteins that play an important role in modulating immune response. They are secreted in response to viruses and other pathogens, triggering such responses that prevent viral replication, activation immune cells, inhibit cell division and affect cell differentiation. There are three classes of interferons: Type I, Type II and Type III IFN which relate to the type of receptor through which the IFN signal. GoldBio is excited to offer a variety of each IFN of each type, including: IFN-alpha1A, IFN-alpha1B, IFN-alpha2A, IFN-alpha2B, IFN-beta1B, IFN-gamma, IFN-lambda1, IFN-lambda2, IFN-lambda3 and IFN-omega1.
