For the high burden countries with TB, an accurate test with TB LAMP can ensure that world’s TB burden is effectively addressed. TB LAMP offers tangible benefits over sputum smear microscopy.
Accurate: High sensitive molecular test for TB diagnosis.
Simple: All in one platform for extraction and detection
High Throughput: 70 samples/day & max. 14 samples/run
Adaptable: Easy visual reading with the naked eye

TB LAMP detects nearly all smear-positive and half of smear-negative TB cases and has a high specificity when performed in reference laboratories [*1]. TB LAMP offers some tangible benefits over CB-NAAT.
Credible: WHO endorsed TB LAMP as a replacement of smear microscopy
Rapid: First report (max. 14 sample) comes within 1.5 hours
Support: On call and on site support by local distributor
Adaptable: Everybody can read the fluorescent result
TB-LAMP can be easily adapted at PHC/CHC level. Lack of access to diagnostics is a major hinderance in driving an effective TB program in the world. TB-LAMP can play an effective role in addressing this challenge.
Affordable: TB LAMP can reach to the last mile of global health
Scientific Evidence: Approx. 100 papers are published about LAMP technology. LAMP Publication list >
Scalable: TB LAMP is designed for medical care in remote rural areas
