Abstract

The reliability of the HHV-6B LAMP using the dry-reagent method was evaluated using serum samples obtained from febrile children. The sensitivity of the original and dry-reagent methods was 10 copies/reaction and 100 copies/reaction, respectively. The dry-reagent LAMP method was highly sensitive (94.0%) and specific (96.0%) for the detection of HHV-6B.
