TB-LAMP is a failsafe solution for all kinds of laboratories
During the amplification process, taking place at a constant temperature, 4 different primer pairs recognize 6 distinct regions of the target gene. The products obtained are a mixture of stem-loop DNA pieces with multiple loops (Loop-AMP). The detection of amplified products can be performed in two different ways, either by detection of calcein emitted fluorescence or by measuring the turbidity that is generated with the release of magnesium-pyrophosphate as a byproduct of target DNA amplification.
Easy-to-use LoopampTM technology for primary and peripheral laboratories
Elimination of TB requires appropriate technology that can be used in rural and remote areas. With HumaLoop T the sensitive and accurate molecular detection of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis bacterium complex can be facilitated on a consolidated platform in order to replace smear microscopy.
Scalable LoopampTM system for reference and regional laboratories
HumaTurb system allows for the real-time detection of turbidity based upon magnesium-pyrophosphate which is generated during the amplification process. The entire system consists of two parts, first HumaTurb C, for the setup and control of incubation time and temperature necessary for amplification of the LoopampTM assay reaction. The amplification takes place in the second part of the system, the HumaTurb A.
