Recently, the rapid spread of 2019 novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) has become a global public health issue, especially in China. As a result, many attempts have been made in disease therapy and population control, but SARS-CoV-2 surveillance still needs to be improved. Real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (rRT-PCR) has been regarded as the gold standard for in vitro diagnostic of SARS-CoV-2 in human samples. However, this system also presents many limitations, such as high manpower and equipment resources, to detect the SARS-CoV-2 genome. In this condition, the establishment of effective viral screening systems should be beneficial to the rapid diagnostic capacity of SARS-CoV-2 in potential patients. Recently, reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) has been proven its important role in the clinical diagnosis of SARS-CoV-2. In general, the results detected by RT-LAMP can be analyzed by the color change of PCR reaction tubes, which suggests this method can a simple, practical tool for monitoring SARS-CoV-2 infections in testing samples.

RT-LAMP is a promising tool that represents a fast, accurate detection process for the SARS-CoV-2 genome in different populations. Meanwhile, recent studies have also indicated that this method is suitable for large-scale screening of virus in low-resource scenarios. Therefore, Creative Biolabs has established a series of RT-LAMP-based assays for analyzing the novel SARS-CoV-2 in a cost-effective manner. Our RT-LAMP assays enable detecting potential SARS-CoV-2-affected samples as fast as 1-2 hours without highly trained staff and expensive equipment. Furthermore, we have also developed a one-step RT-LAMP platform to supervise SARS-CoV-2 susceptible populations, which can provide meaningful data for timely decisions targeting SARS-CoV-2 control strategies. In this platform, we are capable of quantifying and analyzing samples with the minimum concentration (10−5 PFU). In addition, the specificity of RT-LAMP assays has been already evaluated in both SARS-CoV-2 positive samples and negative control samples.
Creative Biolabs is a leader in the field of drug discovery and development and has focused on the treatment of coronavirus for years.
