We amplified samples for sequencing from 5 mothers and 1 child and obtained Core/E1 sequences for all 6 samples and NS5B sequences for 3 samples.
Versions are available for three different pressure sensor series: digital, amplified, and amplified mini.
If there are any side effects in other animal or human cells, these will be also amplified by adjuvants, and thus not measured in chronic toxicity tests with the active ingredient alone.
Because the low-frequency component of the noise is simply an amplified version of the technical noise on the input laser, it can be reduced experimentally by using a quieter laser.
As light waves emitted by the dots bounce within the cavity, they'll become amplified and coherent--perfectly aligned crest-to-crest and trough-to-trough.
The voices on radio and TV are selected voices that are amplified in ways their opposites are not.
At launch, Amplified Music Services has more than 43 million songs in its global music metadata collection and is managing roughly six million queries daily with its AmpliFind[TM] music recognition product (as a result of acquiring the assets of MusicIP Corporation earlier this year).
1) conducted a study on sequence analysis of a partial rompB gene amplified from sera of humans who were seropositive for spotted fever group (SFG) and typhus group rickettsioses.
For example, if a degraded sample amplified with the Identifiler kit is missing seven of the 15 loci normally amplified by the kit in a forensic case, the MiniFiler kit complements it by amplifying the same sample to provide results for the seven loci that were not successful.
Two real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays were performed to determine if rickettsial nucleic acid was detectable in the patient's serum sample: 1) the Rickettsia genus-specific real-time PCR assay amplified and detected a 115-bp segment of the 17-kDa antigen gene and 2) the rickettsial SFG-specific real-time PCR amplified and detected a 128-bp segment of the ompB with a SmartCycler (Cepheid, Sunnyvale, CA, USA), as previously described (13).
Bryan Sykes of the University of Oxford in England cited a case in which amplified DNA, supposedly from a mammoth tusk, turned out to be human.
This allows direct interrogation of the single molecule as opposed to an amplified population of molecules.
