CRISPR grant program application using nCOUNTER® PlexSet™ reagents

Looking for a better way to validate your CRISPR products?

Combine confirmation and functional testing in a single assay with PlexSet gene expression reagents.  No cDNA conversion or sample prep required–PlexSet enables direct detection from cell lysates.  Apply for the CRISPR grant by submitting an abstract below to win a 192 sample CRISPR validation project.

nCounter PlexSet reagents enable researchers to simultaneously confirm CRISPR hit validations and perform functional testing for up to 24 custom gene targets including mRNA, fusions, splice variants, off -targeted effects, and junctions for 96 samples in one run.
