Performance and impact of GeneXpert MTB/RIF® and Loopamp MTBC Detection Kit® assays on tuberculosis case detection in Madagascar.

Performance and impact of GeneXpert MTB/RIF® and Loopamp MTBC Detection Kit® assays on tuberculosis case detection in Madagascar.

Tuberculose snelle moleculaire assays, waaronder GeneXpert MTB / RIF® en Loopamp MTBC Detection Kit®, zijn zeer gevoelig en specifiek. Dergelijke prestaties vertalen zich niet automatisch in verbeterde ziektebestrijding en zijn sterk afhankelijk van het gebruik ervan, de lokale epidemiologie en de diagnostische algoritmen waarin ze worden geïmplementeerd. We evalueren de prestaties van beide assays en … Read more

Nanoparticle-based bio-barcode assay redefines “undetectable” PSA and biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy.

Nanoparticle-based bio-barcode assay redefines "undetectable" PSA and biochemical recurrence after radical prostatectomy.

We report the event of a beforehand undescribed gold nanoparticle bio-barcode assay probe for the detection of prostate particular antigen (PSA) at 330 fg/mL, automation of the assay, and the outcomes of a scientific pilot examine designed to evaluate the flexibility of the assay to detect PSA within the serum of 18 males who’ve undergone … Read more
