About The Product

Our technology consists of three components – a reader device, a molecular assay panel and a unique sampler. We are interested in working with other groups working on LAMP for any human, animal or environmental diagnostic applications – please get in touch to discuss!
The Lodestar DX system is a low cost platform technology that allows users to conveniently carry out Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) reactions. The technique allows amplification and detection of DNA or RNA in a wide range of bacterial and viral targets. Users can experiment with their own combinations of primers for both clinical and basic science research. Lodestar DX uses an internal algorithm to determine if a LAMP reaction is positive or negative. The algorithm is suitable for use with a wide range of LAMP reactions but if you are working on an assay with a non-typical reaction curve then the algorithm can be tweaked to make it bespoke for your specific application.
The Lodestar DX  system outputs the fluorescent reaction data in real time which can be captured directly onto a PC and stored for subsequent off-line analysis. The system can run 8 reactions simultaneously and can be operated flexibly based on user needs.
It can be operated from the mains supply using its powers adapter  (provided) or using a 15Vdc source such as a standard vehicle lighter  plug, allowing usage in remote settings.
