Feasibility of using dry reagents LAMP assay for SARS-CoV-2 detection – News-Medical.Net

In a new study published on the preprint server medRxiv, researchers evaluated the suitability of the Loopamp SARS-CoV-2 Detection kit from Eiken Chemica, Japan…



Researchers evaluate a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay using dry reagents for the detection of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). They found the test kit to be highly specific and sensitive. This method could enable point-of-care diagnosis in low-cost settings.
The rapid spread of the COVID-19 pandemic caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus has necessitated the development of diagnostic methods that can quickly identify if a patient has been infected with …
