Thermo Fisher's Invitrogen TrueCut HiFi Cas9 Protein significantly reduces off-target events while retaining maximum on-target editing efficiency.

Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Invitrogen TrueCut Hifi Cas9 Protein is designed for research applications that require highly precise genome editing, such as the engineering of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cells and the creation of cellular models for disease discovery.

The Invitrogen TrueCut HiFi Cas9 Protein significantly reduces off-target events while retaining maximum on-target editing efficiency. It does this by minimizing edits in unintended locations, which are disruptive in translational research, drug screening, and drug modeling.  It has demonstrated near complete elimination of off-target effects compared to wild-type Cas9 in several cell types, including T cells and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), as well as shown improved off-target profiles relative to similar proteins.
