Here we report the design and evaluation of a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) assay for detecting Acinetobacter baumannii DNA based on the 16S-23S rRNA intergenic spacer (ITS) sequence. The results showed that target DNA was amplified and visualized within 30min and with a detection limit 100-fold greater than PCR.
