CRISPRclean Technology

Harness the specificity of CRISPR to refine your NGS library

What will your samples tell you?

Your samples are full of fascinating potential—discoveries waiting to be found. Sometimes though, that information gets left behind. Lost in the clutter of sequences. Caught up in the lines of data. It’s why we created CRISPRclean. 

CRISPRclean technology harnesses the specificity of CRISPR-Cas9 to degrade abundant, uninformative sequences in prepared next-generation sequencing (NGS) libraries. This method, which can be completed in 4 hours, is seamlessly integrated into NGS workflows by adding Cas9/RNA complexes to the DNA of prepared libraries.

Now you can see exactly what you want, breaking through the clutter—and breaking through new ground.

How CRISPRclean works

CRISPRclean mediated depletion fits easily into NGS workflows. CRISPRclean depletion uses prepared NGS library as input. CRISPR-Cas9 complexes are formed with a pool of designed guide RNAs, and the complexes are mixed with the library DNA. After the targeted sequences are cut, they cannot be substrates for PCR amplification and subsequent sequencing. The refined library (non-targeted sequences) is size-selected using magnetic beads, and then amplified a small number of rounds.  The output is an refined, sequence-ready NGS library. The entire CRISPRclean workflow can be completed in four hours.
