Title

LAMP test

Description

When the labs used by the state to process PCR tests shut down for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, the state distributed battery-powered LAMP tests to people who signed up in advance. The LAMP tests gave PCR-like results which were supposed to be more accurate than the antigen rapid tests which were sold in drug stores (but which became hard for consumers to obtain).
