Therefore, the goal of this article is to determine which of the two amplification techniques ensures less amplifier produced signal impairments in a 16-channel 10 Gbps dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) transmission system.
Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of nucleic acid sequence-based amplification for molecular detection of M.
Interestingly, amplification using the four primer pairs of clfA, clfB, sdr and spa were able to distinguish the tested strains according to their corresponding PFGE pulsotypes (sensitivity, specificity, PPV and NPV = 100%) (Figure 1).
In recent years, there has been a growing interest in isothermal amplification methods (22) such as recombinase polymerase amplification (RPA) (23) and LAMP (21) for POC diagnostics.
In order to quantify the amplification effect of the loess site, the amplification coefficient which is the ratio of peak ground acceleration (PGA) to input seismic acceleration is introduced in this paper.
Loop Mediated Isothermal Amplification (LAMP) for Embryo Sex Determination in Pregnant Women at Eight Weeks of Pregnancy.
FGFR1 amplification has been detected in SCC of the lung, with lower frequency in lung ADC.[sup][19],[20] Lung cancer cells harboring FGFR1 amplification exhibit a highly tumorigenic phenotype, and FGFR1 regulates the stem cell-like phenotype of SCC of the lung.[sup][21]
To provide for higher test specificity, the company has developed this "amplification suppressor" strategy that can eliminate detection of Staphylococcus species or any other bacteria environmental contaminant when testing clinical specimens including blood specimens, nasal swabs, or bronchial lavages from suspected pneumonia.
To analyze low concentrations of cell-free DNA present in the bloodstream, a very sensitive tool is needed for prior amplification. SYGNIS' new technology enables the amplification of quantities of DNA as low as femtograms (1 femtogram = 10-15 gram).
For this study, a GMA was created using differential displacement amplification, giant magnetostriction material and the flexible hinge amplification mechanism.
