Step 1 includes processing of varied specimen (A) through boiling or use of kits to yield a stable and concentrated DNA template (B). In step 2, the lyophilised master mix (C) is reconstituted by the addition of water and the ideal amount of DNA template. In step 3, the amplification and the detection format are combined into a single step to avoid opening the tube (D), hence the results can be acquired in real time (E) through incubation of the reaction with a reporting dye (F) and through the use of a novel LAMP LFD format.
