The loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is one of the most widely used isothermal nucleic acid amplification techniques due to it its simplicity and adaptability within limited resource or point-of-care settings. Here, LAMP was utilized for the rapid amplification and detection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae.
