Development of a recombinase polymerase based isothermal amplification combined with lateral flow assay (HLB-RPA-LFA) for rapid detection of “Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus”.

Author: Ghosh DK, Kokane SB, Kokane AD, Warghane AJ, Motghare MR, Bhose S, Sharma AK, Reddy MK.

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 …

Development of real-time reverse transcription recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) for rapid detection of peste des petits ruminants virus in clinical samples and its comparison with real-time PCR test.

Author: Li Y, Li L, Fan X, Zou Y, Zhang Y, Wang Q, Sun C, Pan S, Wu X, Wang Z.

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 …

Rapid and Specific Detection of Apple stem grooving virus by Reverse Transcription-recombinase Polymerase Amplification.

Author: Kim NY, Oh J, Lee SH, Kim H, Moon JS, Jeong RD.

In this study, a novel assay for specific ASGV detection that is based on reverse transcription-recombinase polymerase amplification is described. This assay has been shown to be reproducible and able to detect as little as 4.7 ng/μl of purified RNA …
