As an important component of the causative agent of respiratory tract infections, enteric and eye infections, Human mastadenoviruses (HAdVs) species B spread easily in the crowd. In this study, an RPA assay was developed for rapidly detecting HAdVs species B which was comprised of two different formats (real-time and lateral-flow device).
Vibrio harveyi is a pathogen that infects fish and shellfish worldwide, causing severe economic losses for the aquaculture industry. As the early diagnosis of V. harveyi infection is crucial to disease surveillance and prevention in cultured marine animals, a fast and accurate method to detect V. harveyi is required.
Currently, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and real time PCR have been the gold standard techniques used for detection of ‘Ca. L. asiaticus’. These diagnostic methods are expensive, require well equipped laboratories, not user-friendly and not suitable for on-site detection of the pathogen. In this study, a sensitive, reliable, quick and low cost recombinase polymerase based isothermal amplification combined with lateral …
Mycoplasma bovis (M. bovis) is a major etiological agent of bovine mycoplasmosis around the world. Point-of-care testing in the field is lacking owing to the requirement for a simple, robust field applicable test that does not require professional laboratory equipment. The recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) technique has become a promising isothermal DNA amplify assay for use in rapid and low-resource …
Current detection of PPRV in clinical samples mainly relies on real-time RT-PCR. Particularly, samples collected from rural area require highly equipped laboratories for screening. A rapid, real-time reverse-transcription recombinase polymerase amplification assay (RT-RPA), employing primers and exo probe, was thus developed.
