Rapid and Visual Detection of Monkey B Virus Based on Recombinase Polymerase Amplification

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal.  Monkey B virus (BV) infection in humans and other macaque species has a mortality rate of approximately 80%. Because BV infects humans through bites, scratches, and other injuries inflicted by macaques, the simple and rapid diagnosis of BV in field laboratories is of great importance to protect […]

Rapid Visual Detection of Pathogenic Streptococcus suis Type 2 through a Recombinase Polymerase Amplification Assay Coupled with Lateral Flow Test

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. Streptococcus suis serotype 2 (SS2) is an important zoonotic pathogen causing serious disease and even death in pigs and humans. Public health events and economic losses caused by SS2 have prompted widespread concern. Because of the unavailability of vaccines, the development of rapid detection methods for timely diagnosis […]

Recombinase Polymerase Amplification for Rapid Detection of Zoonotic Pathogens: An Overview

Announcing a new article publication for Zoonoses journal. With the advent of molecular technology, several isothermal techniques for rapid detection of zoonotic pathogens have been developed. Among them, recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) is becoming an important technology for rapid, sensitive, and economical detection of zoonotic pathogens. RPA technology has the advantage of being able to […]
