Universal Optical DNA Rapid Detection System for Pathogens including Covid-19, Sars, Ebola, Cholera, Salmonella

LAMPPY is an exceptionally affordable yet reliable optical DNA/ detection system based on Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP). Much like polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification, LAMP is a highly sensitive method of DNA detection that creates millions to billions of copies of a target DNA from a minute amount of sample RNA or DNA. However unlike PCR, LAMP applies an isothermal process that does not require expensive and complex equipment, as well as time consuming thermal cycling. It is a more cost-effective and rapid system. LAMP is especially ideal for rapid diagnosis of pathogens or infectious diseases, with results usually within 30 minutes and for high viral loads less than 20 minutes.
