They demonstrated that a DNA amplification tool suitable for field laboratories ensures a broader examination of LAMP efficacy in various epidemiologic settings.
A successful and suitable LAMP assay result is not only determined by DNA amplification efficiency; the method selected for monitoring the reaction product is equally important, and many detection methods have been developed [23, 24].
LAMP is a relatively new DNA amplification technique,[sup][3],[4] which due to its simplicity and low cost could provide major advantages.

* DNA barcoding involves DNA amplification and is therefore not a quantitative method for determining the level of contaminants in test material.
The PCA results revealed that the DNA amplification success was negatively correlated (r = -0.74, p < 0.05) with the amount of template DNA, and positively correlated (r = 0.73, p < 0.05) with the purity of recovered DNA.
The illumigene molecular system employs loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) technology, which enables Meridian to provide customers with the illumipro-10 instrument without a capital investment or expensive annual service contract.
