1st RT-LAMP paper published

01 Apr 2022

Though it took a while, our first RT-LAMP paper is finally not only on bioRxiv but is ‘officially’ out in Frontiers in Molecular Biosciences! This has been an amazing collaborative effort with Julius Brennecke and Andi joining forces during the pandemic to lead a team of students who spearheaded the development of a cheap, open-access and sensitive RT-LAMP-based SARS-CoV-2 assay for laboratory and home-based testing during the pandemic.

Congratulations to all authors, particularly first authors Max Kellner, Julian Ross and Jakob Schnabl, and all of our campus-wide (VCDI initiative) as well as national & international collaborators (Manuela Foedinger & team, Andrew Straw, Luis Aries-Menendez), and a big thank you to our institutes’ directors for supporting our efforts throughout the pandemic!
