Abstract We developed a one-step, single-tube genogroup-specific reverse transcription–loop-mediated isothermal amplification (RT-LAMP) assay for the detection of group B Coxsackie genomes targeting 5 ’ UTR region. The amplification can be obtained in less than 1 h by incubating all of the reagents in a single tube with reverse transcriptase and Bst DNA polymerase at 63°C. Detection of gene amplification could be accomplished by agarose gel electrophoresis, as well as, the monitoring of gene amplification can also be visualized with the naked eye by using SYBR green I fluorescent dye. A total of 8 samples comprised of 6 positive samples and 2 negative samples were used in this study for comparative evaluation with RT-PCR. Thus, due to easy operation without a requirement of sophisticated equipment and skilled personnel, the RT-LAMP assay reported here is extremely rapid, cost-effective, highly sensitive, and specific and has potential usefulness for rapid detection of NPEV.
