FAQ: What is the difference between NEB #E1708: WarmStart Fluorescent LAMP/RT-LAMP Kit (with UDG) and NEB #E1700: WarmStart LAMP Kit (DNA & RNA)?

Both LAMP Kits include a 2X master mix containing Bst 2.0 WarmStart and WarmStart RTx for amplification of RNA and DNA/cDNA targets and a 50X LAMP Fluorescent Dye that binds to dsDNA for real-time detection. 

The WarmStart Fluorescent LAMP/RT-LAMP Kit (with UDG) contains a master mix that is formulated with dUTP and Antarctic Thermolabile UDG (NEB #M0372 ), which prevents amplification of previous reaction products that contain uracil. These additions reduce the possibility of carryover contamination (where the product of a previous reaction can unexpectedly serve as the substrate of a subsequent reaction).
