Abstract

Rapid, sensitive, point-of-care diagnostics are critical for managing infectious diseases. Here we adapt the CRISPR-based SHERLOCK method to develop a rapid, accurate, single copy detection assay for White Spot Syndrome Virus, the most devastating virus impacting global shrimp aquaculture. Further, we combine paper matrix nucleic acid extraction and lateral flow colorimetric reporting to create a fully field-deployable, next-generation diagnostic with potential to transform veterinary pathology, disease ecology, and animal production.
