Use of the variplex™ SARS-CoV-2 RT-LAMP as a rapid molecular assay to complement RT-PCR for COVID-19 diagnosis
The assay may be useful for rapid diagnosis of the severe acute respiratory syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) because of the easy performance and the option to bypass RNA extraction. Using isolated RNA variplex™ RT-LAMP showed a sensitivity of 75% compared to LightMix E gene RT-PCR but contrary to the latter it produced no false-positive results.
