Which product(s) would you recommend for CRISPR mediated gene editing?

CRISPR mediated gene editing requires the delivery of the guide RNA and Cas9 protein into target cells using transfection. The validated method is based on the delivery of guide RNA and Cas9 protein as plasmid DNA, for which we recommend our latest technology jetOPTIMUS®. jetOPTIMUS® ensures highest gene editing efficiency in the largest range of primary cells and cell lines.

DNA-free gene editing methods are considered when off-target effects using the traditional plasmid-based method is a concern. Delivery of gRNA and Cas9 protein as mRNA is the most frequently used DNA-free alternative to reach robust gene editing efficiency in both adherent and suspension cells.

For a full RNA approach – mRNA encoding Cas9 and guide RNAs – we recommend our jetMESSENGER® transfection reagent.

Which product(s) would you recommend for in vivo CRISPR mediated gene editing?

For in vivo CRISPR mediated gene editing, our reagent of choice is in vivo-jetPEI®. Several groups have published their results using in vivo-jetPEI® for gene editing in mice:

Zuckermann, M. & al. (2015). Somatic CRISPR/Cas9-mediated tumour suppressor disruption enables versatile brain tumour modelling. Nat Commun 6, 7391
