Abstract

The detection of two human-pathogenic Giardia duodenalis assemblages A and B in faecal and water samples by loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) has been evaluated. The LAMP reaction is reproducible, rapid and specific for the detection G. duodenalis and has lower costs compared to the other molecular assays. This is the first application of LAMP for Giardia detection.
