In general, only molecular ions of the analyte molecules are produced, and almost no fragmentation occurs. This makes the method well suited for molecular weight determinations and mixture analysis.DNA Primers: Short sequences (generally about 10 base pairs) of DNA that are complementary to sequences of messenger RNA and allow reverse transcriptases to start copying the adjacent sequences of mRNA. Primers are used extensively in genetic and molecular biology techniques.

Development of an impregnated reagent and automation of solid-phase analytical derivatization for carbonyls: proof of principle. (1/293)

This study undertakes reduction of scale and automation of a solid-phase analytical derivatization of carbonyls with 2,4-dinitrophenylhyrazine on a styrene-divinylbenzene resin (XAD-2). Three processes are tested. In the batch process, an aqueous phase consisting of 50 microL of sample and 150 microL of reagent solution is contacted with 6 mg XAD-2 by shaking. An impregnated reagent consisting of 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine hydrochloride (DNPH) deposited on XAD-2 enables two additional processes. In-vial derivatization with an impregnated reagent requires shaking 50 microL of sample with 6 mg of the impregnated reagent and reduced the reaction time from 10 to 5 min. The third process involves packing impregnated reagent a mini-column and flowing 50 microL of sample through under positive pressure supplied by a Harvard Pump. This reduces sample preparation time to 1 min. Studies are conducted with worst-case model analytes: butanone, 2-pentanone, and malonyldialdehyde. The carbonyl of the two ketones is hindered, and, thus, these two compounds react very slowly with DNPH in aqueous solution. Malonyldialdehyde is highly water soluble, and it does not react in aqueous phase but also would not sorb onto XAD-2 for reaction. Nevertheless, derivatization/extraction of all model compounds any of the three procedures result in reproducible and high yields.  (+info)

An automated method for rapid identification of putative gene family members in plants. (2/293)

BACKGROUND: Gene duplication events have played a significant role in genome evolution, particularly in plants. Exhaustive searches for all members of a known gene family as well as the identification of new gene families has become increasingly important. Subfunctionalization via changes in regulatory sequences following duplication (adaptive selection) appears to be a common mechanism of evolution in plants and can be accompanied by purifying selection on the coding region. Such negative selection can be detected by a bias toward synonymous over nonsynonymous substitutions. However, the process of identifying this bias requires many steps usually employing several different software programs. We have simplified the process and significantly shortened the time required by condensing many steps into a few scripts or programs to rapidly identify putative gene family members beginning with a single query sequence. RESULTS: In this report we 1) describe the software tools (SimESTs, PCAT, and SCAT) developed to automate the gene family identification, 2) demonstrate the validity of the method by correctly identifying 3 of 4 PAL gene family members from Arabidopsis using EST data alone, 3) identify 2 to 6 CAD gene family members from Glycine max (previously unidentified), and 4) identify 2 members of a putative Glycine max gene family previously unidentified in any plant species. CONCLUSION: Gene families in plants, particularly that subset where purifying selection has occurred in the coding region, can be identified quickly and easily by integrating our software tools and commonly available contig assembly and ORF identification programs.  (+info)

Comparison between automated and manual measurements of carotid intima-media thickness in clinical practice. (5/293)

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The measurement of carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) has been used as a marker of arterial wall disease. Manual measurements have been performed in most epidemiological studies, but, due to the introduction of new technologies, automated software has been increasingly used. This study aimed to compare manual versus automated cIMT measurements in common carotid (CC), bifurcation (BIF), and internal carotid (IC). METHODS: Automated and manual cIMT measurements were performed online in 43 middle-aged females. Carotid segment measurements were compared by Bland-Altman plot and the variation and repeatability coefficients between observers were also determined for comparison. RESULTS: The average timespan for manual measurements (57.30 s) were significantly higher than for automated measurements (2.52 s). There were no systematic errors between methods in any carotid segments. The variation coefficient was 5.54% to 6.34% for CC and BIF, 9.76% for IC, and absolute differences were 85% below 0.1 mm and 70% below 0.05 mm. Interobserver agreement showed no systematic error. The variation and the repeatability coefficients were better for the automated than manual measures. CONCLUSION: Although both methods are reliable for cIMT measurements, the automated technique allows faster evaluation with lesser variability for all carotid segments currently used in atherosclerosis research.  (+info)

Manual versus automatic sampling variations of a preliminary alcohol screening device. (8/293)

Utilization of a manual sampling function as an alternative to the automatic sampling function in the Alco-Sensor IV Black Dot Model has been recognized by the manufacturer to potentially underestimate an individual's true breath alcohol content (BrAC). A controlled human subject study was conducted to analyze the possible breath-sampling differences between the standard automatic technique and three manual techniques. Subjects were dosed with vodka and orange juice and then tested during the descending limb of their BrAC curve. Differences between the automatic and the manual techniques were found to be statistically significant with the three manual techniques underestimating the BrAC. The average maximum difference between the automatic BrAC level, as compared to the lowest manual level in each data set, was 27.9% (median 27.7%) with underestimations from 20.8% to 40.0%. In no instance did any of the manual techniques produce higher BrACs than the automatic technique.  (+info)

Laboratory automation impacts nearly all aspects of high throughput RNAi screens. It is particularly relevant when considering library format and storage, and also when planning high throughput transfection protocols. In situations where libraries are stored as screening copies that are used for just-in-time dispensing, automation can be utilized as a tool to accommodate diverse assay and cell types and can enable forward or reverse transfections into a variety of different microplates. Automation has the ability to increase the feasibility and decrease consumable costs for assays that require a large number of replicates. It is also an important tool when considering more complex assays, such as those that utilize non-standard plate types or electroporation, as automation increases reliability and can improve assay performance. This chapter highlights important considerations for library formatting and ways in which laboratory automation can be implemented to facilitate RNAi high throughput ...

Harvard Stem Cell Institute, Harvard University. Much has happened in the field of stem cell research. In fact, weve recently moved past the honeymoon stage, during which, in our unbridled enthusiasm, we felt as though stem cells could solve everything from early stage drug-discovery mistakes to full-blown disease states. Now were in the stage where its obvious that stem cells have tremendous promise in a number of different areas, but we also recognize that it will take much more time and work before that promise can be fully realized. Of course, stem cells have been used for therapy-albeit in a very restricted way-since the 1970s, when bone marrow transplants showed that progenitor cells could be harnessed to regenerate failing marrows. These mesenchymal stem cells were also shown to have the potential to differentiate into other cellular lineages, such as vascular epithelial and muscle cells. ...

Feature Story. Brendan Dabkowski. Makers of laboratory automation systems and workcells have updated their products since September, when CAP TODAY last reported on them. Here and in the accompanying product guide are the latest lab automation solutions. Interest in tube-specific automation continues to grow, says m-u-t Americas area manager Niels Hägglund. "Customers are paying more attention to the individual steps a tube takes to make its way through a lab and seeing where the smallest amount of input can yield the greatest increase in throughput or decrease in cost," he says. Thats one reason why m-u-t will soon release for its MK2 bulk-to-bulk sorter a color-cap system to help track sample tubes. The system has a camera that simultaneously identifies cap color and measures the tube profile. m-u-t, in December, released new firmware for its MK2 bulk-to-bulk and MK3 bulk-to-rack sorters. The firmware automatically recognizes increases and decreases in the number of tubes being processed ...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to develop and validate an automated method for extracting forward stroke volume (FSV) using indicator dilution theory directly from dynamic positron emission tomography (PET) studies for two different tracers and scanners.. METHODS: 35 subjects underwent a dynamic (11)C-acetate PET scan on a Siemens Biograph TruePoint-64 PET/CT (scanner I). In addition, 10 subjects underwent both dynamic (15)O-water PET and (11)C-acetate PET scans on a GE Discovery-ST PET/CT (scanner II). The left ventricular (LV)-aortic time-activity curve (TAC) was extracted automatically from PET data using cluster analysis. The first-pass peak was isolated by automatic extrapolation of the downslope of the TAC. FSV was calculated as the injected dose divided by the product of heart rate and the area under the curve of the first-pass peak. Gold standard FSV was measured using phase-contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR).. RESULTS: FSVPET correlated highly with FSVCMR (r = 0.87, ...

As a part of Göteborg Energis work towards a smarter electric grid, the company has chosen to investigate the possibilities of automation in their middle voltage grid. In Europe, there are example cases where these technologies already are installed which many articles on the CIRED conference 2011 proved. Netcontrol Oy in Finland has, together with Tekla, created an automated SCADA system that Vattenfall in Finland today uses. The grid mainly consists of 10 kV open loop fed city grid and this automation is mainly designed for this type of grid. The intention of the automation is to when a fault occurs, the automation disconnects the faulted cable in the loop and then reconnects, this in as little time as possible in order to not make customers suffer.There are several different theories about how automation can be implemented, the two main principles are local automation and centralized automation. The local automation is implemented at station level with fault detectors that communicate with ...
TTP Labtech, a global leader in the design and development of automated instrumentation and consumables for life science applications, and the University of California San Diego (UC San Diego), have announced that their collaboration has resulted in a new workflow for single cell sequencing, which reduces the cost of sample preparation by 90%.. The workflow, which has been published in the Journal of Laboratory Automation, was developed through the combination of UC San Diegos expertise in genomics and the use of TTP Labtechs mosquito liquid handlers, which can pipette nanolitre to microlitre volumes with high accuracy and reproducibility, to miniaturise and automate the process.. Although single-cell genomics is advancing rapidly, researchers face challenges linked with reproducibility, sensitivity, scalability and cost, particularly when trying to miniaturize high-throughput applications. To maximize accuracy and precision, library prep protocols recommend volumes that are within the range ...
Until now, life science researchers had a narrow set of expectations for automation systems. The main focus of laboratory automation providers has been to develop liquid handling systems for high-throughput workflows processing very large samples numbers, primarily in screening laboratories. In this model all samples go through the same protocol, usually confined to a small number of simple steps, such as serial dilutions or simple plate-to-plate liquid transfers. While effective in these instances, the changing needs of life science research caused scientists to rethink automation and expect more capabilities and easier access.. Researchers continue to want high throughput, but they also want to improve data quality and translate it into shortened research timelines and reduced costs. Driven by the need to produce high-quality data in a high-throughput environment, researchers look to reduce manual intervention and automate workflows from sample preparation phase through data analysis.. Highly ...

exposes accessibility properties of the control in a way that abstracts the Silverlight technology specifics of the control model and maps information to UI Automation concepts, so that these properties can be consumed by the UI Automation accessibility framework. The AutomationPeer concept is part of the overall architecture design of the UI Automation system. The peer represents a deliberate abstraction of the control, such that a client can obtain pattern-based information about the specific purpose and capability of a control without knowing its implementation-specific object model or having to resort to using a framework-specific object model API. Also, the peers run in a different process than the controls they represent, which has performance and security advantages.

... Versus COM Add Ins. All COM Add-Ins are also Automation Add Ins, but not all Automation Add Ins are COM Add Ins. The difference, in summary, is that a COM Add In must implement the IDTExtensibility2 interface, which provides the "bridge" between the COM Add In and Excel. This interface, defined in the "Microsoft Add In Designer" library (MSADDNDR.dll), is implemented either directly through an Implements AddInDesignerObjects.IDTExtensibility2 statement or indirectly via an add in designer object. Additionally, the COM Add In must be registered in either the system registry hive HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel or the hive HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\Excel. An Automation Add In does not need to implement the IDTExtensibility2 interface (although it can do so with no ill effects) and needs to be registered only in the hive HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. The creation of the required registry information is carried out automatically on the local machine when ...

The growing cost-containment pressures in major industrialized nations, coupled with continued technological advances in chromogenic substrates, monoclonal antibodies, immunoassays, molecular diagnostics, computers and laboratory automation will radically change the global coagulation diagnostics practice during the next five years. New specific and sensitive markers of coagulation will be increasingly used on automated instrumentation. Coagulation testing will also become more standardized, offering opportunities for quality control products and services. Moreover, the continuing contraction of the hospital system and technological advances will facilitate decentralization of the coagulation testing closer to the patient, thus creating additional opportunities and challenges for suppliers. ...

Date: 14 March 2017. What does automation mean? You may be thinking robots, automated refraction booths or sight testing smartphone apps, some of which may be with us over the next few years. But in this blog we would like to step away from robots and think about how automation is starting to change clinical practice right now and will form part of the incremental journey to clinical automation. Although we will see that knowing how to program the machines is crucial.. Software has been developed that can detect retinopathy from a retinal photo: in fact the software has been around for almost a decade, but only now are we seeing the results from large trials assessing its accuracy and cost effectiveness. Adnan Tufail and colleagues have recently published a study that confirmed two programs could assess diabetic retinal images. The software can automatically assess the image and assign one of the following categories to each one: upgradable; retinopathy, maculopathy, pre-proliferative or ...
To unleash new levels of business innovation and competitive advantage, todays organizations are embracing digital transformation. However, their success depends on building an agile business and agile IT. In the digital era, automation is key to IT agility.. But organizations are only as agile as their least agile component, and for most organizations that is the data center network. In fact, Gartner research has found organizations that automate at least 70 percent of network changes reduce outages and increase release velocity by 50 percent.[1] At the same time, a Gartner 2017 poll of CIOs revealed that a lack of appropriate skills and a lack of resources are the biggest barriers to resilient IT in this digital era.[2] Clearly, there is a strong need and desire to implement automation but appropriate skills and resources are lacking.. Workflow Composer Automation Suites are specifically designed to jumpstart your transformation journey and accelerate time-to-value by providing everything ...

John Williams, Director of Digital Strategy at ILM, on how businesses should face up to automation responsibly. "The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.". Theres a good reason Bill Gates words are so often quoted; they cut right to the heart of what technology means to the world. People have a tendency to be overwhelmed by the lightening-quick pace of change - particularly when it comes to digital - and they often feel that it is a battle to try and keep their head above water.. All too frequently, this worldview leads to businesses taking a short-term approach when it comes to planning for the future, leaving organisations unprepared for the unexpected. But if businesses constantly look ahead, anticipating and adapting to the world around them - which must always include a close analysis of the present - ...
