In this study, recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) combined with SYBR Green I was developed for the detection of Plasmodium knowlesi. Positive samples were indicated with a green color while negative samples were orange. To increase the efficiency of amplification, an interval mixing step of samples after 3 to 6 min incubation was recommended. Different sets of reaction volumes from 6.25 to 50 µL were tested and the results indicated no differences in detection. RPA's combination with SYBR Green I is fast and easy to perform, hence this method is suitable for use in resource-limited settings.
