The intensity of electric current was slowly increased by turning a dial on the tester from 0 to 10 at a rate of one numerical increase per five seconds until a response was obtained.3 The positive control

The negative control group had uncontaminated burs (new/unused) while the positive control

Interestingly, the students at the positive control

Negative and positive control
PCR from first-round amplified product were used in the second round negative and positive controls
Results showed that the mutagen MMS as the positive control
(T3) had the highest incidence of micronuclei formation in the experiment while the genotoxic treatment (T4) at 500 ppm including the negative control treatments (T1 and T2) had the lowest micronuclei counts.
Lane 1, molecular weight marker; lanes 2-4, clinical samples; lane 5, DNA positive control
(16) More recently a large (n = 300) 4-day plaque regrowth study comparing an aloe vera extract rinse to 0.2% CHG and a placebo rinse showed both the test group and positive control
to significantly (p < 0.05) reduce plaque compared to the placebo, while no statistically significant difference was demonstrated between them.
Additionally, as a positive control
, an injection of 25 [micro]l of lipopolysaccharide LPS (Sigma-Aldrich, Missouri, USA) at a concentration of 2mg/ml (50 [micro]g in total) was injected into the skin of non-tumor-bearing mice.
A commonly used commercial medical fungicide clotrimazole was used as a positive control
