Nucleic acid testing is decisive for the diagnosis of many diseases in medicine. Besides its wide application in gene editing, CRISPR technology features a powerful tool for the highly sensitive and selective quantification of nucleic acids. In this talk, the first CRISPR/Cas13a powered electrochemical microfluidic biosensor for on-site miRNA detection will be presented. Without any target amplification, it offers a low-cost, easily scalable, and multiplexed approach for nucleic acid diagnostics.
