Downstream Analysis of Gene-Edited Cells

Once it has been confirmed that the cells are correctly edited, phenotype investigation can begin. It may be desirable to further perturb your system with a drug as part of a cell-based assay during target or lead discovery and validation.

Bio-Rad provides predesigned and validated, as well as customizable, tools for high-throughput gene expression analysis, including the CFX Automation System, PrimePCR Gene Expression Assays and Panels, and CFX Maestro Software for real-time PCR detection systems. For more sensitive absolute quantitation, use predesigned or custom ddPCR Genome Edit Detection Assays and Droplet Digital PCR Systems.

The ZE5 Cell Analyzer enables study of the effects of edits at the cellular level. This flexible analyzer can be run by novices and experts alike and accommodates up to 30-parameter experiments. This high-level multiplexing allows full characterization of edited cells and their response to different assay conditions.

Multiplex proteomic analysis using the V3 Western Workflow and validated Bio-Plex Multiplex Immunoassays provides a complete picture of proteomic profile of the new cell lines. Validated PrecisionAb Western Blotting Antibodies and disease-specific or customizable multiplex Bio-Plex Assays ensure sensitive and reliable results.
