Use of the CRISPRaTest assay requires access to a flow cytometer with the following excitation and emission requirements:

Excitation: 488nm and 561nm
Emission: 530/20nm and 590/20nm

Cellecta also offers the following products that may be useful when running this assay:

dCas9-Only Plasmids

Cell Line
dCas9-VPH+ MDA-MB-231 Cells (Cat.# ZMDAMB231-CVPH, 106 cells) may be run in parallel with the user’s dCas9-transactivator (dCas9-TA) cells as a positive control for the assay.

Transduction Control Virus
Non-Targeting CRISPR Control pRSG16-U6-(sg)-UbiC-TagRFP-2A-Puro (virus) may be used to assess transduction efficiency of the target cells.

Cat.# Description Quantity Price
