The Loopamp MTBC Detection Kit is a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC) DNA extracted from sputum in patients with any symptom indicative of MTBC infection. The product is based on the nucleic acid amplification method, LAMP (Loop meditated Isothermal Amplification) developed by Eiken Chemical Co., Ltd.
The kit contains reagents for 96 reactions as well as positive and negative controls. Dried LAMP reagents are reconstituted with extracted DNA solution and incubated for 40 min at 67°C either in HumaLoop T or HumaTurb instruments. After extraction of the samples, the results are obtained in around 45 min.
