Vitality of Electrophoresis in IVD

In the world of Clinical Chemistry, tests often require sophisticated equipment in addition to clinical reagents. Blood gas analysers, electrophoresis and chromatography, among others, are used alongside self-testing equipment to enable patients to self-monitor different compounds. The Electrophoresis technique is used extensively in DNA, RNA and protein analysis – wherein the technique is used to…

Detecting Inborn Human Errors – NBS!

Adverse health outcomes are either adapted or innate. The latter however is a consequence of genetic disorders, where specific enzyme defects interfere with the normal metabolism of exogenous (dietary) or endogenous protein, carbohydrate or fat intake. These disorders hence earn the term Inborn Errors of Metabolism or IEM. What this disorder does is reduce or…

Advancements in Histopathology

Introduction The cells are the building blocks of all living things. Group of these cells unites to perform a specific function. These groups of cells are called tissues. The microscopic study of cells in a smear is called Cytology and the study of tissue is called Histology. Histology Histology is a department of anatomy that…

Understanding the major requirements of ELISA

The enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is an antibody/antigen test or in simpler terms, is a test for immune response to foreign particle attacking the body like virus, bacteria and allergens. ELISA tests involve trained professionals and specialized instruments to be carried out. Among the most significant and widely used instrument to conduct ELISA test include…
