FAQ: Can I set up my LAMP/RT-LAMP reactions at room temperature?

The enzymes are WarmStart formulations (Bst 2.0 WarmStart and WarmStart RTx) inhibited by modified aptamers at room temperature. Accordingly, reactions can be prepared at room temperature without significantly affecting LAMP activity. For additional information about modulating enzyme activity at room temperature with aptamers, please see “Using aptamers to control enzyme activities: Hot Start Taq and beyond”
