Gene editing has opened many opportunities to transform research, drug development and personalized medicine. The real power of gene editing is being able to choose exactly where to edit a gene. Measuring the efficiency and specificity of gene editing is a critical step to ensure success and advance to practical applications. A typical gene editing workflow requires the assessment of different conditions before moving to functional assays. Methods used routinely to achieve this are multimodal and often require long time and different resources for optimization and data analysis. At Countagen, we are committed to accelerating this process by providing complete solutions that ensure swift and reliable quantification of gene editing efficiency.
