In order to find the lowest pump power that would ensure a certain level of amplification it is required to center the peak of the gain spectrum in respect to the spectrum of the amplified signal.

Amplification of SRY gene using LAMP: By means of the Primer Explorer V.4 software (specific for LAMP), specific primers were designed based on SRY genes (GenBank accession JQ811934.1) (Table 1).
In this review, we focused on the detection of FGFR1 amplification by FISH.
The output shaft of the micro actuator and the output end of the displacement amplification mechanism were on the same axis, and moved in the same direction so as to ensure the stability and same-phase of the displacement amplification.
Quantification increased amplification of hTERT and GAPDH gene in breast cancer patients compared with those without tumor was performed.
A more challenging weakness of amplification-based methods is that they are not intrinsically well-suited to quantitation of the target analyte; the combination of non-linear amplification (exponential, in most methods), stochastic effects, and variable presence of inhibitory substances in samples all make quantitation highly challenging.
