Kit for detection of staphylococcal infection by the LAMP method has been registered

The TestGen company has registered the "LAMP-STAPH-test" kit for qualitative detection of Staphylococcus aureus DNA by multiplex loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP).

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is the most dangerous of all staphylococci. It can cause infections of the genitourinary system, pneumonia, and purulent-septic infections with a decrease in human immunity.

The "LAMP-STAPH-test" kit uses a highly conserved gene fragment as a target for detection of Staphylococcus aureus DNA. Detection of Staphylococcus aureus DNA is carried out by the method of multiplex loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) by fluorescent real-time detection. High reliability of the test is achieved by using an internal control sample, which is detected at the same time in the test tube with the sample. LAMP makes it possible to carry out the same analysis as using PCR but faster - in just 35 minutes, which significantly increases the capacity of laboratories.

"Molecular genetic tests based on loop isometric amplification are becoming more widespread in clinical practice. The LAMP reaction is not affected by the presence of biological components, so the "LAMP-STAPH-test" kit makes it possible to test a wide range of biomaterials, including native smears and swabs without the DNA isolation stage," says Anton Semanin, one of the TestGene developers.
