    Author: Feng XY, Shen LB, Wang WZ, Wang JG, Cao ZY, Zhang SZ.

    In this study, a novel isothermal assay was established on the basis of reverse transcription–recombinase polymerase amplification (RT-RPA) and evaluated in terms of its ability to detect SCSMV. Overall, the RT-RPA assay was specific, sensitive, reliable, and rapid for SCSMV […]

  • Duplex lateral flow assay for the simultaneous detection of Yersinia pestis and Francisella tularensis.

    Author: Jauset-Rubio M, Tomaso H, Soror El-Shahawi M, Saleh Omar Bashammakh A, Obaid Al-Youbi A, O' Sullivan CK.

    The multiplexed amplification detection of genomic DNA from Francisella tularensis and Yersinia pestis is reported here. Amplification was achieved using isothermal recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA), exploiting tailed primers, followed by detection using a nucleic-acid lateral flow assay.

  • Detection of Fusarium oxysporum f. sp. fragariae from infected strawberry plants.

    Author: Burkhardt A, Henry PM, Koike ST,Gordon T, Martin FN.

    In this study, next-generation sequencing and comparative genomics were used to identify a unique genetic locus that can detect all the somatic compatibility groups of F. oxysporum f. sp. fragariae identified in California. This locus was used to develop a […]

  • Rapid detection of bovine viral diarrhea virus using recombinase polymerase amplification combined with lateral flow dipstick assays in bulk milk.

    Author: Hou P, Zhao G, Wang H, He C, He H.

    The aim of this study was to develop a novel isothermal recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) method combined with a lateral flow dipstick (LFD), for rapid detection of BVDV. The detection limit of this assay was 20 copies per reaction, and […]
