Reporting a visual detection of SARS-CoV-2 by a rapid, simple, sensitive, and specific RT-LAMP method with the eight primer sets. One major limitation of this assay is the designing of primers for effecient LAMP RT-PCR results.

In this study, a colorimetric RT-LAMP method targeting the RdRp gene is developed for detecting SARS-CoV-2 within 60 min. The results showed high sensitivity and specificity of 95.74% and 99.95%, respectively. The assay result is comparable to that of commercial qRT-PCR assays implying its beneficial use as a diagnostic method for COVID-19 screening.

Evaluating the performance of CE-labeled variplexTM real-time SARS-CoV-2 RT-LAMP assay using extracted RNA in comparison with commercial Corman's LightMix E gene RT-PCR as reference. Variplex RT-LAMP assay showed a lower sensitivity, compared to commercial E gene RT-PCR, but sensitivity increased (86.4%) when samples with E gene Ct values <35 were considered.

Evaluating the performance of CE-labeled variplexTM real-time SARS-CoV-2 RT-LAMP assay from direct respiratory samples, without RNA extraction, and comparing it with VIASURE and Allplex RT-PCR assays. The Allplex RdRP assay showed the highest sensitivity (84 %), followed by E and N gene tests from the same kit. When variplex RT-LAMP assay was combined with that of other diagnostic assays under analysis, the sensitivity was increased to 92 and 100 %. Ct values of RT-LAMP showed a weak correlation with RT-PCR, Pearson coefficients ranging from (0.44-0.47)

In this study, researchers tested a rapid, isothermal, colorimetric RT-LAMP protocol by using a specific primer set based on the N gene for detecting SARS-CoV-2. The assay detected SARS-CoV-2 RNA, with a detection limit corresponding to a CT value of 30 for RT-qPCR, with a sensitivity of 97.5% and a specificity of 99.7%. RT-LAMP assay was also tested with the ORF1a primer set. ORF 1a primer set was found to be less sensitive than the N gene LAMP primer set, with a sensitivity cutoff of CT 25, when compared with E gene RT-qPCRderived CT values.
Primer sequences used in the study are taken from Zhang et al., (2020). And the details are provided in Supplementary Tables (Table S1).
The researchers have developed a multiplexed sequencing protocol (LAMP-sequencing) to analyze the sequences of many RT-LAMP reaction products.

In this study, researchers have developed a rapid, isothermal method, a swab-to-RT-LAMP assay that can be performed without RNA extraction, for detecting SARS-CoV-2. The assay had a specificity of 99.5% and sensitivity of 86% (for CT < 30). Some positive samples did not show a color change but did so when repeated for a second time. Therefore it is recommended to run this assay using technical duplicates.

Reporting a simple, rapid, and visual reverse transcription loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay for detection of SARS-CoV-2 by targeting the N gene. The results were observed using a real-time PCR machine or by a colorimetric change from red to yellow. The results showed 92.9% concordance with the RT-qPCR assay. When the template input is more than 200 copies per 25 microL reaction, the RT-LAMP assay requires 30 min for real-time fluorescence monitoring or 40 min for visual detection reaction to complete
