FAQ: What components are included in the WarmStart LAMP Kit (DNA & RNA)?

The kit includes a 2X Master Mix containing a reaction buffer with all necessary cofactors at optimized concentrations for LAMP and RT-LAMP assays: dNTPs, MgSO4, Bst 2.0 WarmStart DNA Polymerase and WarmStart RTx. The kit also contains one tube of a 50X LAMP Fluorescent Dye that binds to dsDNA for real-time detection of LAMP. To perform a LAMP reaction, the user adds primers, target DNA or RNA and adjusts the Master Mix to a final concentration of 1X.  Detailed instructions can be found in the Kit Manual.
