Detection of Zika Virus Using Reverse Transcription-Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP)
Methods in Molecular Biology
© 2020, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. Reverse Transcription-Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP) allows amplification and detection of RNA or DNA rapidly and relatively inexpensively. Here we describe how RT-LAMP can be utilized to detect Zika virus in human urine or serum samples or Aedes mosquito samples. This can be completed in under 30 min and without first isolating the RNA from the sample.
