  • Diagnosis
  • Rapid diagnosis of rabies can help initiate prompt infection control and public health measures, obviate the need for unnecessary treatment/medical tests, and assist in timely administration of pre- or postexposure prophylactic vaccination to family members and medical staff. (hindawi.com)
  • Laboratory diagnosis and surveillance for animal and human rabies are severely constrained in much of the developing world where rabies is endemic. (hindawi.com)
  • In Bangladesh, the diagnosis and genotyping of PPR virus (PPRV) may be hampered by inadequate infrastructures and by lack of proper clinical material, which is often not preserved under cold chain up to laboratories. (biomedcentral.com)
  • In anticipation of a cholera outbreak in 2016, UNICEF, Johns Hopkins University, and the Group for Technical Assistance, Nepal, collaborated to assist the government of Nepal to strengthen early warning surveillance, laboratory-based diagnosis, and field investigation. (ajtmh.org)
  • Specimen collection and shipping are important steps in obtaining laboratory diagnosis or confirmation for VPDs. (cdc.gov)
  • surveillance
  • Australia has in place a comprehensive network of laboratories for enterovirus surveillance and this provides further evidence for the absence of wild poliovirus infection. (health.gov.au)
  • Priorities for the future plan should include sustaining the enhanced surveillance system for acute gastroenteritis and cholera, rolling out a rapid diagnostic test, and ensuring rapid and systematic epidemiological investigation and environmental testing. (ajtmh.org)
  • substrate
  • Intrinsic kinetic tests involve adding relatively high concentrations of organic substrate to small concentration of acclimated microorganisms so that the COD/VSS ratio typically is greater than 10. (environmental-expert.com)
  • In aerobic tests, cultures are combined with nutrients, trace minerals, and an organic substrate - such as acetic acid or ethanol. (environmental-expert.com)
  • After incubation and washing as above, plates were developed with 50 µL of tetramethylbenzidine (TMB)-peroxidase substrate (Kirkegaard & Perry Laboratories, Inc., Gaithersburg, MD) for 7 min. (cdc.gov)
  • titer
  • There were no differences in geometric mean titer among the three test lots at months 2 and 6. (ajtmh.org)
  • In order to obtain this permit, the intended animal must first be micro-chipped and its blood tested for Rabies Titer at an approved laboratory. (antigua-barbuda.org)
  • decontamination
  • This latest laboratory study tested the efficacy of a UV room decontamination system against various species of Candida auris and Candida albicans , MRSA, and C. difficile spores. (clinell.com)
  • Decontamination and neutralization of surfaces from bacteria and spores is a complex process that involves multiple technologies and various approaches, depending on the nature and extent of contamination. (google.com.au)
  • efficacy
  • AATCC 100 test method is carried to check the antimicrobial efficacy of Antimicrobial agents whether incorporated into the threads of the fabric or applied to the surface of the textiles. (accugenlabs.com)
  • AATCC 100 test method is carried to check the antimicrobial efficacy of the fabric whether the textile is washed or Not washed. (accugenlabs.com)
  • Accugen laboratories test the fabrics prior washing as well as after washing of the fabric to evaluate the persistence of the antimicrobial efficacy of the textile. (accugenlabs.com)
  • Merck scientists "witnessed firsthand the improper testing and data falsification in which Merck engaged to artificially inflate the vaccine's efficacy findings," according to court documents (see below). (wearechange.org)
  • vaccine
  • A metric to rate sera for neutralization potency would be useful, for example to down-select vaccine candidates for further evaluation in clinical trials. (elifesciences.org)
  • Each public health professional dealing with vaccine-preventable diseases should identify sources of laboratory support for his or her clinical and public health practice. (cdc.gov)
  • Testing of Merck's vaccine was never done against "real-world" mumps viruses in the wild. (wearechange.org)
  • In reality, Merck knows and has taken affirmative steps to conceal - by using improper testing techniques and falsifying test data - that its Mumps Vaccine is, and has been since at least 1999, far less than 95 percent effective. (wearechange.org)
  • Merck designed a testing methodology that evaluated its vaccine against a less virulent strain of the mumps virus. (wearechange.org)
  • bacteria
  • Samples of the industrial effluent are collected at source, for testing on the actual bacteria of the receiving activated sludge. (environmental-expert.com)
  • It determines both bacteriostatic activity (inhibition of multiplication) as well as bactericidal activity (killing of bacteria) of the antimicrobial test agent. (accugenlabs.com)
  • antigen
  • Following incubation, blocking solution was discarded and test samples, diluted 1:100 in PBS with 0.05% Tween, and 0.5% bovine albumin (PBS-T-BA), were applied to one negative and two positive antigen-containing wells. (cdc.gov)
  • variability
  • Samples from individual pigs in the New Needle protocol were divided into five aliquots prior to submission to evaluate the variability of the diagnostic tests. (aasv.org)
  • correlation
  • This study tested the correlation of appetite and circulating levels of acylated ghrelin in patients with AECOPD. (jove.com)
  • diagnostics
  • WHO convened a meeting on diagnostics in Geneva last week with global public health officials, test makers and funding agencies. (reuters.com)
  • blood
  • In the neutralization test in the laboratory, the virus is added to a blood sample of the patient. (outbreaknewstoday.com)
  • They also did a routine blood test right before the dental, and they said everything came back normal and her glucose levels were fine so it's not diabetes. (pets.ca)
  • Using a new needle and syringe for each pig during blood testing is impractical with large populations and not the norm in the field today. (aasv.org)
  • activity
  • AATCC 100 antimicrobial standard test method is used to quantitatively test the antimicrobial activity of the textiles/ fabrics over the contact period of 24 hours against Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella pneumonia. (accugenlabs.com)
  • AATCC 100 antimicrobial test method provides a quantitative evaluation of the antimicrobial activity of the test material. (accugenlabs.com)
