Real-AMP: LAMP-Turbidimeter for Shrimp Viral Detection

LAMP-Turbidimeter for detection of shrimp viral infection is a platform for detecting shrimp viruses by using loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) technique and the result is interpreted by a designed portable multi-channel turbidimeter. The results can be obtained within 1 hour. This platform is portable and can be used for detection not only in the laboratory but also in the field.

This technology was jointly developed by BIOTEC and NECTEC. It has been licensed to Mobilis Automata Co., Ltd. The equipment is available under the trade name “Real-AMP”, whereas the reagent is called “AMP Plus”. Currently, there are reagents for testing the following pathogens: white spot syndrome (WSSV), Laem Singh Virus (LSNV), Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Syndrome (AHPNS), IHHNV, MrNV and EnHp.
