LamPORE 4.6: A mass testing tool for the screening of infectious diseases
The non- linear amplification properties of LAMP make it possible for 4.6 LamPORE to be a qualitative technique. The reads per sample output of LamPORE is not suitable for this purpose. The ability to offer high throughput testing of the disease is a key advantage of the testing regime.
High performance saliva and swab samples of the LamPORE experiment
The same way as a traditional PCR test, the swab samples of the LamPORE show high performance. The saliva and swab samples from the participants were assessed. The test is highly effective for testing people without symptoms in the community because it has an overall sensitivity of 99.5% and specificity of 99.4%.
COVID-19 tests with LamPORE and DnaNudge
The tests in question are a rapid test called LamPORE and a machine called DnaNudge. The government says that 450,000 of the LamPORE tests will be made available. The latter will be able to perform 5.8 million COVID-19 tests over the next few months.
Introducing the OpenLab experiment
The UK public does not have a chance to try out the service. If you are a laboratory that is scaling up or planning operations, you can contact us here.
Self-testing for COVID-19 infection
When you take a test for a disease, you put the end of the sample in a pot of liquid, instead of sending it to a lab. You put the liquid on the device. The solution causes a reaction.
If the test is positive, you will see two lines and one line, which is similar to a pregnant test. You should get a result in 30 minutes. The government has made lateral flow tests available from selected pharmacy in England as part of a scheme to increase self-testing.
The Scottish Government is considering a new target for home testing
The government pushed back a July target to test all care home staff and residents, a move that will help identify silent spreaders. Scotland will receive a share of the new tests, but its own clinical advisers will look at their accuracy and efficacy before they are made available, according to First MinisterNicola Sturgeon. Home testing kits can be delivered to someone's door so that they can test themselves. The result of the analysis of the swab samples is passed on to the individual.
