Loop-mediated isothermal amplification is a fast, cheap method of DNA amplification that can be conducted in a single tube. Through a unique dumbbell pattern, the technique creates multiple amplification regions on template DNA for exponential amplification.

September 1, 2015
- Synthetic biologyInterdisciplinary branch of biology and engineering, applying multiple disciplines to build artificial biological systems for research, engineering, and medical applications.
- BiotechnologyBiotechnology can refer to the application of science and technology to living organisms or the use of living organisms, their parts, products or models thereof to solve a problem, produce knowledge or produce goods and services. Biotechnology may involve the alteration of living or non-living materials.
- Reverse Transcription Loop-mediated Isothermal Amplification (RT-LAMP)A version of loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) used when RNA is the template. LAMP is a method of amplifying nucleic acids under isothermal conditions using DNA polymerase with strand displacement. Reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) also includes reverse transcriptase.
