Quantification of bacterial invasion into eukaryotic cells is a prerequisite to unfold the molecular mechanisms of this vector’s perform to acquire insights for enhancing its effectivity. Invasion is historically quantified by antibiotic safety assays that require dilution plating and counting of colony-forming models rescued from contaminated cells. Nonetheless, to distinguish between connected and internalized micro…Read More
Label-free real-time detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin using a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor.
We have developed a low-cost optical cavity-based biosensor with a differential detection method for point-of-care medical diagnostics. To experimentally demonstrate its label-free real-time biosensing capability, we performed the detection of biotinylated bovine serum albumin (BSA). Streptavidin is introduced into the optical cavity structure and immobilized on 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTES) coated surface. After rinsing out unbound streptavidin…Read More
Green synthesis of zinc oxide particles with apple-derived compounds and their application as catalysts in the transesterification of methyl benzoates
ZnO nanoparticles (ZnONPs) were successfully synthesized using bravo-de-esmolfe apple extract in aqueous medium at room temperature. ZnO microparticles, prepared with a pure apple phytochemical, quercetin (ZnOq), or without phytochemicals (ZnO) were studied for comparative purposes. The re-use of apple waste for highly efficient catalyst production, based on green synthetic routes, can be added to the…Read More

Current Practices for Reference Gene Selection in RT-qPCR of Aspergillus: Outlook and Recommendations for the Future
Aspergillus is a genus of filamentous fungi with huge geographic and ecological distributions. Species inside this genus are clinically, agriculturally and biotechnologically related, resulting in growing curiosity in elucidating gene expression dynamics of key metabolic and physiological processes. Reverse-transcription quantitative Polymerase Chain Response (RT-qPCR) is a delicate and particular methodology of quantifying gene expression. A vital…Read More
Comparison of SARS-CoV-2 Detection by Rapid Antigen and by Three Commercial RT-qPCR Tests: A Study from Martin University Hospital in Slovakia
The worldwide pandemic of coronavirus illness 2019 (COVID-19) brought on by the extreme acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is having an incredible affect on the worldwide financial system, well being care programs and the lives of virtually all folks on this planet. The Central European nation of Slovakia reached one of many highest day…Read More
Comparison between Whatman FTA Elute Cards and Conventional Swab for the Detection of Pathogenic Enteric Bacteria Using an RT-qPCR Assay
The emergence of outbreaks of foodborne sickness is carefully related to meals contamination attributable to varied enteric pathogens, resembling Escherichia coli O157:H7, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis, and Staphylococcus aureus. The management of enteric pathogens poses a problem attributable to the truth that these pathogens can persist for an extended time frame within the surroundings. The fast detection of pathogenic…Read More
Background: The comparative size of telomeres is taken into account to be associated to illnesses similar to most cancers, growing old, and cardiovascular illnesses. qPCR is at the moment one of many fundamental strategies for detecting telomere size. Nevertheless, because of the distinctive sequence of telomeres (extremely repetitive six-base sequence), it’s troublesome to design primers and…Read More
