Optimized tools for high-confidence genome engineering
The Dharmacon Edit-R CRISPR-Cas9 platform provides guaranteed, predesigned, ready-to-use guide RNAs to enable rapid and highly functional gene editing experiments.
Guaranteed to edit your target! Algorithm-optimized crRNA for genome-wide coverage of human, mouse, or rat genes. Modifications for nuclease resistance improve DNA-free editing. Simply search for your gene!
Offering coverage of the human and mouse genomes, these synthetic RNAs are modified for nuclease resistance and available as pools of four or individual crRNA reagents.
Edit-R trans-activating CRISPR RNA (tracrRNA) is synthetic, HPLC-purified, long RNA required for use with Edit-R crRNA to form the complex that programs Cas9 nuclease. It is modified for nuclease resistance and can be used with modified or unmodified Edit-R crRNA.

Edit-R predesigned crRNA and lentiviral sgRNAs are guaranteed to edit your target, or we will replace it! No restrictions on Cas9 nuclease formats – if your Edit-R positive control works, so will your gene-specific guide RNA.
We guarantee that EVERY predesigned Edit-R CRISPR-Cas9 crRNA and Edit-R lentiviral sgRNA (guide RNAs) will provide successful editing at the target site when delivered as described in the Edit-R Technical Manuals.
The Edit-R guide RNA guarantee is valid when used with any wild type S. pyogenes Cas9 nuclease, including mRNA, expression plasmid, protein, or stable Cas9 expression, and Edit-R crRNAs must be used with Edit-R tracrRNA for the guarantee to apply.
Analysis of editing of the treated cell population must be shown using a T7EI or Surveyor mismatch detection assay. If successful editing is not observed for a predesigned Edit-R guide RNA while an appropriate side-by-side Edit-R positive control is successful, a one-time replacement of a different predesigned Edit-R guide RNA of the same format and quantity will be provided at no cost.
A replacement will only be approved upon discussion with our Technical Support team.
Successful editing at the DNA level does not always lead to functional gene knockout; it is recommended to test multiple guide RNAs to determine the most effective guide RNA for knockout of your target gene.
This guarantee does not extend to any accompanying experimental costs, does not apply to guide RNAs ordered via the CRISPR Design Tool, and will not be extended to the replacement guide RNA.
