  • Pigs

    Rapid detection of transmissible gastroenteritis virus in swine small intestine samples using real-time reverse transcription recombinase polymerase amplification

    Author: Wang J, Wang J, Zhang R, Liu L, Shi R, Han Q, Yuan W.
    The assay performance was evaluated by testing 76 clinical samples by RT-RPA and a real-time RT-PCR. Fourteen samples were TGEV RNA positive in RT-RPA (18.4%, 14/76), which were also positive in the real-time RT-PCR. The diagnostic agreement between the two ...

  • Development of a rapid and visual nucleotide detection method towards an Chinese epidemic strain of Orientia tsutsugamushi based on recombinase polymerase amplification assay and lateral flow test

    Development of a rapid and visual nucleotide detection method towards an Chinese epidemic strain of Orientia tsutsugamushi based on recombinase polymerase amplification assay and lateral flow test

    Author: Qi Y, Yin Q, Shao Y, Cao M, Li S, Chen H, Shen W, Rao J, Li J, Li X, Sun Y, Lin Y, Deng Y, Zeng W, Zheng S, Liu S, Li Y.
    The RPA–LF method could differentiate O. tsutsugamushi from other phylogenetically related bacteria. The sensitivity was 100% and specificity was over 90%, when evaluated using infected animal samples or simulative clinical samples. Furthermore, the method was completed in 20 min at ...

  • Listeria-monocytogenes

    Recombinase Polymerase Amplification Combined with Lateral Flow Strip for Listeria monocytogenes Detection in Food.

    Author: Du X-J, Zang Y-X, Liu H-B, Li P, Wang S.
    Experiments confirmed a detection limit as low as 300 fg of DNA and 1.5 × 101 CFU in pure cultures. Furthermore, RPA‐LF exhibited no cross‐reactions with pathogens. Evaluation of the method with food samples indicated that the detection limit was ...

  • Development of an isothermal amplification-based assay for the rapid detection of Cronobacter spp.

    Development of an isothermal amplification-based assay for the rapid detection of Cronobacter spp.

    Author: Liu S, Geng Y, Liu L, Sun X, Shao J, Han B, Wang J, Tan K.
    The RPA and real-time RPA assays reduced the analysis time to less than 15 min and the results were as reliable as those of real-time PCR. Taken together, the RPA and real-time RPA assays served as fast, reliable, and sensitive ...
