FAQ: Can the WarmStart Colorimetric LAMP 2X Master Mixes be used in instruments that utilize fluorescence detection or real time turbidity measurements?

The master mix is compatible with fluorescent detection methods when supplemented with DNA intercalating fluorescent dyes (SYTO 9 or similar) and it gives reaction speeds similar to conventional LAMP. It is also possible to perform LAMP detection on a real time turbidimeter, although reaction speed as measured by turbidity is slightly slower than that of more commonly used methods.
