Automated Underwater Sensing of Nucleic Acids
We present a technique for nucleic acids analysis that is currently popular for low-cost biological assays in resource limited settings. The technology—especially with biochemical innovations developed in our laboratory—possesses outstanding potential to successfully cross over into the arena of automated underwater sensing. Our presentation highlights the performance requirements overlap between biomedical sensors for resource-limited settings and those for autonomous underwater sensing, the fundamentals of the technique known as loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), and a performance comparison of the standard LAMP assay with the ASU assay.
