Sherlock™ CRISPR-based chemistry is approved for clinical laboratory use

The Sherlock™ CRISPR-based SARS-CoV-2 kit was the very first FDA authorized CRISPR-based EUA diagnostic test for use in clinical laboratory settings

The Sherlock™ CRISPR-based SARS-CoV-2 kit is intended for the qualitative detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2. This test provides specific and sensitive detection of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in upper respiratory tract and bronchoalveolar lavage specimens from individuals suspected of COVID-19 by their healthcare provider.


Faster than PCR; approximately 1 hour reaction time
Add thousands of tests per day to current lab volume
Highly specific and sensitive as demonstrated in EUA clinical evaluation and subsequent publication
Minimal footprint; uses standard laboratory equipment and a microplate reader
Proven highly sensitive with Limit of Detection comparable to RT-PCR

More Info

This test has been authorized only for the detection of nucleic acid from SARS-CoV-2, not for any other viruses or pathogens. This test has not been FDA cleared or approved. This test has been authorized by FDA under an EUA for use by authorized laboratories. This test is only authorized for the duration of the declaration that circumstances exist justifying the authorization of emergency use of in vitro diagnostics for detection and/or diagnosis of COVID-19 under Section 564(b)(1) of the Act, 21 U.S.C. § 360bbb-3(b)(1), unless the authorization is terminated or revoked sooner.
