🔗
Isothermal means "at fixed temperature".
🔗
This is to contrast with the more well established polymerase chain reaction, which requires heating and cooling the sample several times.
🔗
The obvious advantage of isothermal methods is that their machinery can be simpler and cheaper, and the process can happen faster, since you don't have to do through heating and cooling cycles.
