A Portable Multi-Channel Turbidity System for Rapid Detection of Pathogens by Loop-Mediated Isothermal Amplification.


This study aimed at developing a portable multi-channel turbidity system (21 cm in length, 15.5 cm in width and 11.5 cm in depth) by real-time loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method for rapid detection of pathogens. The developed system herein includes temperature control unit, photoelectric detection unit, turbidity calibration unit, power management unit, human machine unit, communication unit and ARM-based microcontroller. The coefficient of variation for eight channels is less than 0.25% in noise analysis. Legionella bacteria (LEG) and H7 subtype virus (H7) were successively detected by the designed and developed system within 60 minutes. Moreover, its specificity for LEG is satisfactory and its sensitivity for H7 is 10 copies/mL. Besides, this system for point-of-care diagnosis allows a rapid, small size, low cost, and automatic detection with the characteristics of high-efficiency, excellent stability and high uniformity.
