Contamination Prevention 101

Contamination prevention 101 Back To Homepage Contamination is a tough issue that concerns almost every clinical laboratory and research lab. LAMP is a simple molecular test, requiring little hands-on work and some expertise, but that doesn’t mean contamination doesn’t exist there either! As a matter of fact, in low tech testing settings and especially when […]

New preprint on medRxiv!

New preprint on medRxiv! Back To Homepage We’re pleased to announce that our study titled “Head-to-head comparison of direct-input RT-PCR and RT-LAMP against RT-qPCR on extracted RNA for rapid SARS-CoV-2 diagnostics” is now accessible on medRxiv!  In this study, we show the sensitivity and specificity of the LAMP protocols developed at the Vienna Biocenter on clinical […]

A note on HNB dye

A note on HNB dye RTLAMP > News Back To Homepage Over the past few weeks we’ve heard of great success stories in implementing LAMP as well as some roadblocks and strange problems people have been facing. A particularly interesting one has popped up with HNB dye. We hear reports of one group of users […]

Updated RT-LAMP protocols

Updated RT-LAMP protocols RTLAMP > News Back To Homepage Over the weeks since launching this website, the team at Vienna BioCenter was been working hard to help users implementing LAMP tests, improving the methods and looking out for more scientific opportunities. The commitment we have for developing rapid and affordable testing goes beyond publications in […]

Open access protocols

Open access protocols RTLAMP > News Back To Homepage From the get-go, one of our focuses was on enabling accurate SARS-CoV-2 detection on a massive scale. Where supply chains of large multinational corporations failed in enabling affordable, available and robust testing programmes, we hope that a decentralised and open sourced solution might be the cure. […]

LAMP for the world!

LAMP for the world! RTLAMP > News Back To Homepage As the pandemic continues to paralyze our lives and countries are counting the waves of coronavirus cases, there is a clear demmand for rapid, accurate and sensitive SARS-CoV-2 diagnostic methods. One of the promising methods is reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplificaiton, or RT-LAMP for short. […]
