  • Bacterial
  • The rapid strep test (RST) is a rapid antigen detection test (RADT) that is widely used in clinics to assist in the diagnosis of bacterial pharyngitis caused by group A streptococci (GAS), sometimes termed strep throat. (wikipedia.org)
  • bacteria
  • Microtox is an in vitro testing system which uses bioluminescent bacteria (Allivibrio fischeri, formerly known as Vibrio fischeri) to detect toxic substances in different substrates such as water, air, soils and sediments. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, showed that PICRUSt was much more accurate on diverse soil samples and samples from the Human Microbiome Project than on microbial mat samples from Guerrero Negro, which contained many bacteria without any sequenced relatives. (wikipedia.org)
  • organism
  • Tests revealed this organism is oxidase positive and catalase negative. (wikipedia.org)
  • PICT differs from the Population Tolerance Approach to Community Tolerance in that it can be easily applied to any ecosystem and it is not critical to use a representative test organism, as with the Population Tolerance Approach. (wikipedia.org)
  • Co tolerance is the ability of an organism to develop a tolerance to a certain toxicant in short term tests, and obtain that tolerance for other toxicants similar to the first. (wikipedia.org)
  • toxicity tests
  • Microtox was developed by Azur Environmental (formerly Microbics Corporation) in 1979 as a cost effective alternative to toxicity tests available at the time. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prior to Microtox, the majority of toxicity tests available for water specifically focused on fish and daphnids. (wikipedia.org)
  • Basically it is difficult to understand what exactly may be going on in a community without testing it with multiple ecotoxicological tools with long and short term toxicity tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • Kidney
  • Chloramphenicol residues in chicken liver, kidney and muscle: a comparison among the antibacterial residues monitoring methods of Four Plate Test, ELISA and HPLC. (biomedsearch.com)
  • It was found that all pineal indoles tested demonstrated an inhibitory effect in the kidney but not in the liver. (biomedsearch.com)
  • analysis
  • The tool serves in the field of metagenomic analysis where it allows inference of the functional profile of a microbial community based on marker gene survey along one or more samples. (wikipedia.org)
  • high
  • Allivibrio fischeri have demonstrated high sensitivity across a wide variety of toxic substances. (wikipedia.org)
  • The American Cancer Society states that although quaternium-15 releases formaldehyde, a known carcinogen in laboratory test animals at relatively high doses, because the amount of formaldehyde released from these products is low, it is unclear that avoiding quaternium-15 in cosmetics provides any health benefits. (wikipedia.org)
  • regimen
  • Based on the results of the pre-entry genotype and phenotype [AS PER AMENDMENT 02/19/02: virtual phenotype] tests and treatment history, an individualized salvage therapy regimen (not provided by the study) is selected by the site investigator(s). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • A patient has failed his/her current regimen if he/she has, within 30 days of study entry, either a viral load (level of HIV in the blood) of at least 10,000 copies/ml or 2 tests which show a viral load between 1,000 and 10,000 copies/ml. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • sample
  • Also known as the portable version of the Microtox Model 500, this device provides simple testing, uses small sample sizes, and is a cost effective approach to analyzing water samples. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2013 tested the accuracy of this genome prediction step by using previously reported datasets in which the same biological sample was subjected to 16S rRNA gene amplification and shotgun metagenomics. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rapid
  • There are currently several types of rapid strep test in use, each employing a distinct technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • It is an anti-microbial agent by virtue of being a formaldehyde releaser, however this can also cause contact dermatitis, a symptom of an allergic reaction, especially in those with sensitive skin. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • Since its inception, Microtox has become a standard method for testing the toxicity of water as well as other substrates such as soils and sediments. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • It was identified in 1982 by Australian scientists Barry Marshall and Robin Warren, who found that it was present in a person with chronic gastritis and gastric ulcers, conditions not previously believed to have a microbial cause. (wikipedia.org)
  • effective
  • 5-hydroxytryptophol and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid when tested at 4 mM. 5-methoxytryptamine was as effective as 5-hydroxytryptophol and 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid when tested at 4 mM but was inactive at 1 mM. 5-methoxytryptophol was marginally active at 4 mM. (biomedsearch.com)
  • samples
  • Four Plate Test (FTP), ELISA and HPLC were used to qualify and quantify the contamination of the samples with CAP. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Test datasets included human microbiome samples from the Human Microbiome Project, soil samples, diverse mammalian samples, and samples from the Guerrero Negro microbial mats Because PICRUSt, and evolutionary comparative genomics in general, depends on sequenced genomes, biological samples from well-studied environments (many sequenced genomes) will be better predicted than poorly studied environments. (wikipedia.org)
  • types
  • There are three major types of RST: First, a latex fixation test, which was developed in the 1980s and is largely obsolete. (wikipedia.org)
  • technology
  • Both solid phase (soils and sediment) and aqueous acute toxicity testing (described below) can be conducted using this technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • soil
  • This test is further modified to detect lead in soil with a sensitivity 0.03 #22;g. (environmental-expert.com)
  • The landers used a robotic arm to put soil samples into sealed test containers on the craft. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to a paper authored by a team led by Rafael Navarro-Gonz├ílez of the National Autonomous University of Mexico, "those chemicals are exactly what [their] new study found when a little perchlorate -- the surprise finding from Phoenix -- was added to desert soil from Chile containing organics and analyzed in the manner of the Viking tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • study
  • A study published in June 2015 showed an association between A. muciniphila abundance, insulin sensitivity and healthier metabolic status in overweight/obese adults. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mars
  • These include sites that are analogues of potential surface habitats, deep subsurface habitats and temporary habitats that can form after volcanic eruptions and large meteorite impacts but excludes sites that are thought to be analogues only of conditions on early Mars, geological analogues, or analogues used only for testing engineering details for landing systems and rovers. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • To test Salk's new vaccine, the cells were put into mass production in the first-ever cell production factory. (wikipedia.org)
  • HeLa cells were used by Jonas Salk to test the first polio vaccine in the 1950s. (wikipedia.org)
  • A large volume of HeLa cells were needed for the testing of Salk's polio vaccine, prompting the National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis (NFIP) to find a facility capable of mass-producing HeLa cells. (wikipedia.org)
