What methods to deliver the Cas12a ribonucleoprotein (RNP)?

We have successfully used electroporation in internal experiments to deliver Cas12a RNP complexes to cells in culture. In many cell lines, Alt-R™ Cas12a Electroporation Enhancer, a non-targeting carrier DNA, is also required for efficient delivery of the RNP complex. IDT protocols using Cas12a and electroporation are included here, and these Cas12a DECODED articles include functional data and details:
