The National Health Laboratory Service (NHLS) offers wide-scale CD4 testing through a network of laboratories in South Africa. A new "load and go" cytometer (Aquios CL, Beckman Coulter), developed with a PLG protocol, was validated against the predicate PLG method on the Beckman Coulter FC500 MPL/CellMek platform.

Whereas modern automated blood cell analyzers measure the volume of individual red blood cells (RBCs), leading to four RBC indices (mean corpuscular volume, MCV; mean corpuscular hemoglobin, MCH; mean...
Increasing resistance by malaria parasites to currently used antimalarials across the developing world warrants timely detection and classification so that appropriate drug combinations can be adminis...
We propose an automated pipeline for vessel centerline extraction in 3D computed tomography angiography (CTA) scans with arbitrary fields of view. The principal steps of the pipeline are body part det...
Current flow-based blood counting devices require expensive and centralized medical infrastructure and are not appropriate for field use. In this paper we report a streamlined, easy-to-use method to c...
This review describes recent advances in the field of automated surveillance of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs), with a focus on data sources and the development of semiautomated or fully auto...
More than 29 million people in the US are living with diabetes, many of whom will develop diabetic retinopathy (DR) or diabetic eye disease (DED), the leading cause of vision loss and blin...
In a study performed in 2012, the investigators demonstrated that in ECP setting , the new automated device (Spectra Optia-MNC) released by Terumo BCT for MNCs collection based on intermi...
Gingival Crevicular Fluid samples will be collected using periopapers after accelerated tooth movement technique, results will be achieve with cytokine measurements that will be done using...
This study will provide further knowledge concerning the use of electrocardiography (ECG) signals for verification of peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC) tip placement. Furthermo...
This study aims to study the impact image guided radiotherapy with Cone beam CT will have on the outcomes(toxicities and response) of head and neck cancer when compared to 3D conformal rad...
The number of CD4-POSITIVE T-LYMPHOCYTES per unit volume of BLOOD. Determination requires the use of a fluorescence-activated flow cytometer.
An examination, review and verification of all financial accounts.
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Performance of an act one or more times, with a view to its fixation or improvement; any performance of an act or behavior that leads to learning.
A method of differentiating individuals based on the analysis of qualitative or quantitative biological traits or patterns. This process which has applications in forensics and identity theft prevention includes DNA profiles or DNA fingerprints, hand fingerprints, automated facial recognition, iris scan, hand geometry, retinal scan, vascular patterns, automated voice pattern recognition, and ultrasound of fingers.
