Point of Care Assay Development Challenges and Solutions: LAMP vs. qPCR

Molecular point of care (POC) tests are rapidly gaining traction in the diagnostic market, especially for infectious diseases. While LAMP and qPCR testing share common advantages such as quick turnaround time and high sensitivity and specificity, LAMP has additional benefits, making it possible for testing to be carried out essentially anywhere – from an airport, to school, to a remote medical clinic.

In this webinar you will learn about:

  • The new advances in the LAMP and qPCR assay development for POC
  • How to speed up sample-to-result and eliminate the need for cold-chain management

New Air-Dryable Technology, an Advanced Alternative to Lyophilization for Molecular Assays

qPCR and RT-qPCR are widely used in the development of molecular diagnostic assays with applications in human diagnostics, animal health, environmental, plant and food testing.

Lyophilization is a common technique used for creating ambient temperature stable PCR assays. However, the process is time consuming, complex to optimize and requires expensive equipment. Meridian’s new air-dryable technology replaces lyophilization with a fast, simple, and inexpensive oven-drying process, making it ideal for manufacturing room-temperature stable, highly sensitive and cost-effective molecular diagnostic assays.

THIS WEBINAR WILL COVER:

  • How Meridian’s new air-dryable technology compares to traditional lyophilization
  • The impact of the air-drying process on qPCR performance
  • The combination of air-drying with inhibitor tolerance technology in qPCR assays
