ELISA and Rapid HIV Tests
Both ELISA and Rapid tests can detect HIV in blood. The ELISA method detects 5% of HIV positive female donors and 2% of positive male donors, while the Rapid method can detect 0.8%. The differences between the two methods are significant because ELISA is more sensitive and specific, and requires no radioisotopes. This article compares […]
How to Detect the Presence of Urease in a Sample?
To detect the presence of urease in a sample, you must first prepare the urea broth. It is also possible to use a biopsy sample. However, it is necessary to avoid light, which will interfere with the urea media. In addition, the urea broth should be stored at 4 to 8 deg C. The pH […]
The Benefits of a Lateral Flow Reagent Dispenser
An automatic lateral flow reagent dispenser is a high-quality alternative to a syringe. The BioStriper TM is an inexpensive liquid dispensing system that allows researchers from a variety of backgrounds to perform lateral flow assays. The low-cost system allows for tip adjustments in minutes, and is particularly useful for start-ups and R&D laboratories. Its unique […]
DNA Extraction From Bacterial Culture
A complete of sixty eight specimens had been processed by the routine protocol and the High Pure protocol with the additional sonication step. Forty-eight samples remained unfavorable for bacterial DNA after both DNA isolation procedures. Both aliquots of eleven samples were PCR positive with constant sequencing results, 3 samples were PCR positive by the phenol […]
IMPROVIRAL Viral Preservative Medium
IMPROVIRAL Viral Preservative Medium is a molecular transport medium for viruses. Its main function is to stabilize nucleic acids and maintain their viability. NAT Medium has been developed to facilitate the study of influenza, hand-foot-mouth disease, and pneumonia. However, the FDA and other regulatory agencies are still debating the specific role of VPM in viral […]
The research was conducted in a metropolis with excessive prevalence of HIV an infection. The study subjects who offered voluntarily for the HIV testing and people referred to the OPD on clinical suspicion from a big tertiary care hospital to the VCTC have been included within the study. Informed consent was obtained and a pre […]
How accurate is Covid's diagnosis?
The detection and monitoring of biomarkers in body fluids has been used to improve human healthcare activities for many years. In recent years, researchers have targeted their attention on making use of the point-of-care strategies into biomarker detection. The evolution of cell applied sciences has allowed researchers to develop numerous portable medical gadgets that goal […]
What are the laboratory consumables?
It is nearly impossible to think about our every day life without artificial supplies. In molecular and biocheical laboratories, plastic labware is utilized in virtually every utility. But chemical substances used within the manufacturing of disposable plastic labware, such as slip agents, plasticizers or biocides, can leach out of the plastic into your sample. Scientific […]
