Br512: an improved DNA polymerase for isothermal amplification assays
Unmet needLoop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a technique that allows for nucleic acid amplification without the need for a thermocycler. This technology enables testing for infections practically anywhere. Testing shortages have exacerbated the COVID-19 pandemic, and there is a high demand for tests that can provide rapid results outside...
