LAMP assay for detection of Asian fish tapeworm

November 5, 2021

Data are relative fluorescent units obtained from the FAM channel of a AmpliFire Isothermal Fluorometer (Agdia, Inc., Elkhart, USA) recorded every 10 sec during as isothermal (LAMP) amplification. The isothermal reaction is to detect the Asian fish tapeworm, Schyzocotyle acheilognathi [syn. Bothriocephalus]. Samples (column headers) are described in tabs and include 1) positive control dilution series, 2) DNA Extractions from AFT sensitivity samples, and 3) DNA Extracted from non-AFT specificity controls.
