A Revolution in DNA Detection


We have enclosed some publications below you may find of interest.


    The original RPA publication...

    DNA amplification is essential to most nucleic acid testing strategies, but established techniques require sophisticated equipment or complex experimental procedures, and their uptake outside specialised laboratories has been limited.

    Users interested in using RPA to amplify MRSA DNA should use the oligonucleotides described in our more recent publication ( ).

  • Bridging flocculation for on-site, rapid, qualitative DNA detection in resource-poor settings

    RPA (Recombinase Polymerase Amplification) combined with a novel bridging flocculation assay for qualitative evaluation of isothermally amplified plant and other pathogen DNA and RNA by naked eye.

  • Early Detection of the Dengue Virus Using RT-RPA

    The RPA assay detected as few as 10 copies of DENV RNA in <20 minutes. The designed RT-RPA primers and exo-probe detected the DENV genome of at least 12 genotypes of DENV circulating globally without cross-reacting with other arboviruses. The sensitivity and specificity of the RT-RPA assay were comparable to those of the RT-LAMP and qRT-PCR methods. The RT-RPA assay is rapid and simple to perform without the need for costly equipment or a high level of skill.

  • Recombinase Polymerase Amplification-Based Assay to Diagnose Giardia in Stool Samples

    An RPA assay was characterized on the bench top using stool samples spiked with Giardia cysts where it showed a limit-of-detection nearly as low as the gold standard polymerase chain reaction assay. Testing with the assay in the highlands of Peru on 104 stool samples collected from the surrounding communities suggested that further improvements in clinical sensitivity will be needed however.

  • Real-time microfluidic RPA for the toxin B gene of Clostridium difficile on a SlipChip platform

    A miniaturised platform for pathogen detection using the SlipChip concept is demonstrated with an RPA assay for C. difficile. The platform has potential for use in resource-limited environments or at the point-of-care because of its ease of use and low cost, particularly if combined with preserved reagents.

  • RPA of CaMV-35S Promoter and nos Terminator for Rapid Detection of Genetically Modified Crops

    RPA is used to detect the regulatory sequence of the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S (CaMV-35S) promoter and the Agrobacterium tumefaciens nopaline synthase gene (nos) terminator, which are widely incorporated in genetically modified (GM) crops. The assay could reliably detect as few as 100 copies of the target molecule in a sample within 15–25 min. Furthermore, the real-time RPA detection method was successfully used to amplify and detect DNA from samples of four major GM crops (maize, rice, cotton, and soybean). With this novel amplification method, the test time was significantly shortened and the reaction process was simplified; thus, this method represents an effective approach to the rapid detection of GM crops.
