Rapid Point of use DNAble® Assay for Salmonella enterica using the Douglas Scientific® AmpliFire®
Application Note May 13, 2016
The AmpliFire by Douglas Scientific along with DNAble isothermal amplification chemistry from EnviroLogix® provide a simple and portable tool to perform genetic analysis at the point of use. The highly specific and accurate DNAble chemistry resolves past challenges for isothermal DNA amplification such as noisy background, interference from inhibitors, and false positives. This paper describes a proof-of-concept experiment that demonstrates the performance characteristics of a DNAble assay performed on the AmpliFire using both crude extract and purified DNA samples.
• The AmpliFire is a portable point of use detection instrument optimized for DNAble isothermal nucleic acid amplification.
• DNAble is a rapid and robust isothermal DNA amplification chemistry using a fluorescent-labeled molecular beacon for detection.
