The LAMP method bears the following features: 1) it can be performed under isothermal conditions; 2) the reaction can be accelerated by using a loop primer; 3) it generates large amounts of the amplified products; and 4) it can also amplify RNA by addition of reverse transcriptase with a single step.

Furthermore, the LAMP method can be used for SNP typing with a distinctive primer. Considering that SNPs are associated with constitutional factors, such as disease susceptibility, drug responsiveness, and adverse drug reactions, the LAMP method holds the promise of application to tailored medical care. The LAMP method can be used for tests in various fields such as the diagnosis of hereditary disease, identification of viral infections as point-of-care testing, sex determination (humans and other animals), and testing for contamination of food or water by bacteria and other agents.[5,6]
