Custom CRISPR Validation Service

Performed a CRISPR experiment, but unsure whether you have the right cell clone for your research? Looking for a third party to confirm your CRISPR results for publication? abm is proud to offer a variety of CRISPR validation options – from sgRNA efficiency screening, genomic cleavage assay, analysis by Sanger sequencing or NGS, to protein-level validation – to provide thorough validation of your CRISPR results.



Introduction to CRISPR

"We are quite happy with the knockout cells that you made. This was a tricky knockout and hemizygous removal was much more prevalent than the double knockout, but you did it. In addition to your excellent genomic sequence characterization of both mutant LIF alleles, I have confirmed in our lab that the tumor cells have lost all mouse LIF production.""

Sample Submission Guideline

Sample formatDetails
gDNA
  • Isolated gDNA from at least 1 million cells/sample
  • The gDNA template must be non-degraded and unamplified. If samples are found to be degraded, the customer will be asked to resend the gDNA.
  • Avoid repeated freeze thawing and store in nuclease-free centrifuge tubes in Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0) at -20°C.
  • Ship samples on blue ice packs to keep samples cold during transport
Cell pellet
  • Cell pellet containing at least 1 million cells/sample*
  • Ship samples in dry ice to maintain sample quality during transit* gDNA Isolation service charges will apply


Disclaimer and Policies

abm is not responsible for storage of any reagents associated with the customer (cell line, DNA, PCR product and cloned plasmids) after one month of the report delivery.

Our goal is always to deliver high-quality validation data to aid you in your research and downstream application. However, CRISPR validation service results are dependent on the sample quality submitted by customers and as such, abm is not in a position to guarantee the final results obtained and full service charges will apply for the services performed. By placing an order with abm, customer agrees to this term.
