Harnessing the power of CRISPR to program next generation diagnostics bringing answers to people who need them the most.
What is SHERLOCK™?
SHERLOCK is an evolution of CRISPR technology, which others use to make precise edits in genetic code.
As a diagnostic tool, SHERLOCK can detect the unique genetic fingerprints encoded in virtually any DNA or RNA sequence in any organism or pathogen.
Accelerating CRISPR diagnostics
SHERLOCK™ utilizes CRISPR as a method for “smart amplicon detection” and can be adapted for use in a single cartridge as part of a simple point-of-need system or deployed as a single-use disposable in low-resource settings.
The adaptability of SHERLOCK™, coupled with its ability to precisely identify nucleic acid sequences, makes it a diagnostic with potential for broad global reach.
