Abstract: The purpose of this study was to develop a loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) method for rapid, sensitive, and simple detection of Streptococcus agalactiae in farmed fish. A set of four primers, two outer and two inner, was designed from the fibrinogen-binding (fbsB) proteins gene sequence of S. agalactiae, and conditions for LAMP were optimized as incubation of all reagents for 60 min at 64°C. LAMP products were judged by agar gel electrophoresis as well as the naked eye after development by Synergy Brands Green I (SYBR Green I). Sensitivity of the assay was 2.8 × 103 CFU/ml (2.8 CFU per reaction) and no positive amplification was detected for other related bacteria. This LAMP method can be used to detect S. agalactiae infection in the laboratory and the field.
