An additional consequence of the high MS-LAMP specificity is the ability to combine 3 individual simplex assays in a single triplex reaction without a substantial risk of primer dimer formation, which often is an obstacle for PCR-based DNA amplification protocols (32).
The newer DNA amplification methods are also far more sensitive in terms of the number of organisms required for a positive test compared with the first culture-independent test, the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).
