Looking Beyond PCR: Isothermal Amplification 

Thermo logo


When sample material is limited, insufficient DNA input can make downstream analysis and assay design problematic. A variety of methods that utilize isothermal amplification (DNA amplification at a constant temperature) can solve this dilemma. The two most popular methods, whole genome amplification (WGA) and loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), can solve many challenges in assay development and mitigate the need for a thermal cycler.
