A fast, simple, and precise method to perform gene edits

The transformative CRISPR-Cas9 technology is revolutionizing the field of genome editing. Able to achieve highly flexible and precise targeting, the CRISPR-Cas9 system can be modified and redirected to become a powerful tool for genome editing in broad applications. 

From designing, synthesizing, and validating your CRISPR process, we offer end-to-end services to support every step in genome editing. Our dedicated R&D scientists and technical support specialists are ready to partner with you and your colleagues to accelerate your research program.

We’ve developed robust algorithms that allow us to generate the most optimal CRISPR-Cas9 gRNA designs, taking into consideration potential off-target effects. 

Based on our experience, we recommend that you design and test at least 3 gRNAs and choose the design that provides you with the highest on-target efficiency and minimal off-target effects. We offer a validation service where we design and test at least 3 designs and then provide you with the best-performing gRNAs.

Additional CRISPR-Cas9 validation services

  • Validate CRISPR-Cas9 gRNA design efficacy via genome cleavage detection (GCD) assay
  • Validate CRISPR-Cas9 gRNA design efficacy via on-target next-generation sequencing (NGS) analysis
  • Verify lack of off-target effects by NGS using Ion AmpliSeq technology
CRISPR tools

Need assistance with CRISPR gRNA design?

Our CRISPR Search & Design tool allows you to search our database of >600,000 predesigned CRISPR gRNAs in human and mouse genes or analyze your sequence of interest for de novo gRNA designs using our proprietary algorithms. Up to 25 gRNA sequences per gene are provided with recommendations based on potential off-target effects for each CRISPR sequence.
