The objective of this study is to determine if using alternative streaking patterns on the BD Kiestra™ InoqulA™ can impact colony isolation and improve turnaround time (TAT) of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) screening samples.

Streaks lacking pigmentation have impacted red blush cultivars of peaches in many East Coast production areas, but the underlying cause is still unclear. Some evidence suggests that streaking may be c...
An optical forward-scatter model was generalized to encompass the diverse nature of bacterial colony morphologies and the spectral information. According to the model, the colony shape and the wavelen...
Quick turnaround of laboratory test results is needed for medical and administrative reasons. Historically, laboratory tests have been requested as routine or STAT. With a few exceptions, a total turn...
Social isolation and loneliness have been associated with increased incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), but few studies have evaluated the impact of social isolation and loneliness on mortality...
Several psychosocial risk factors have been identified that increase the rate of readmission in heart failure (HF) patients. However, the impact of social isolation (SI) on the rate of readmission is ...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of utilizing a rapid turnaround CT/NG test on treatment of female patients in the emergency department or urgent care setting with possi...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of empirical posterior wall isolation (PWI), left atrial appendage electrical isolation (LAAEI) and coronary sinus iso...
This project will to evaluate whether a proactive social robot (ElliQ) has an impact on reducing social isolation and loneliness in older adults who are living alone, while also promoting ...

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia with a lifetime risk for development of over 20%. Pulmonary vein isolation is now established as therapy of choice for patients with sympt...
Glycoproteins found in a subfraction of normal mammalian plasma and urine. They stimulate the proliferation of bone marrow cells in agar cultures and the formation of colonies of granulocytes and/or macrophages. The factors include INTERLEUKIN-3; (IL-3); GRANULOCYTE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (G-CSF); MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (M-CSF); and GRANULOCYTE-MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR; (GM-CSF).
A heterogenous group of degenerative syndromes marked by progressive cerebellar dysfunction either in isolation or combined with other neurologic manifestations. Sporadic and inherited subtypes occur. Inheritance patterns include autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, and X-linked.
Enumeration by direct count of viable, isolated bacterial, archaeal, or fungal CELLS or SPORES capable of growth on solid CULTURE MEDIA. Each colony (i.e., microbial colony-forming unit) represents the progeny of a single cell in the original inoculum. The method is used routinely by environmental microbiologists for quantifying organisms in AIR; FOOD; and WATER; by clinicians for measuring patients' microbial load; and in antimicrobial drug testing.
The sudden collapse and disappearance or diminution of a colony of organisms.
A mononuclear phagocyte colony-stimulating factor (M-CSF) synthesized by mesenchymal cells. The compound stimulates the survival, proliferation, and differentiation of hematopoietic cells of the monocyte-macrophage series. M-CSF is a disulfide-bonded glycoprotein dimer with a MW of 70 kDa. It binds to a specific high affinity receptor (RECEPTOR, MACROPHAGE COLONY-STIMULATING FACTOR).
