Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a sensitive method for nucleic acid analysis, and has been demonstrated as a ideal technique for use in miniaturized microfluidic systems. While LAMP assays are often detected using absorbance or fluorescence, we demonstrate an integrated system for LAMP assays through the detection of precipitate formation using a modified commercial DVD drive. This integrated DVD drive system is able to automate the sedimentation process and scattering-based detection of accumulated precipitate, as well as maintain the constant temperature needed for LAMP analysis.
