LAMP vs PCR: choosing the appropriate SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) diagnostic test
The most accurate and sensitive SARS-CoV-2 tests, Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) and, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), both require RNA to be extracted from a patient’s sample before it can be amplified and analysed.
Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) is a method of nucleic amplification which has grown in popularity thanks to its speed, efficiency, and low cost when compared to PCR testing.
The Seprion™ range of products detect aggregated proteins associated with Parkinson’s, Alzheimers, Huntington’s disease, and the Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathies such as BSE, scrapie, vCJD and CWD.
