In order to reduce the window phase between time of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and laboratory diagnosis, new fourth generation screening assays which permit a simultaneous detection of HIV antigen and antibody have been developed. In a multicenter study, a new automated fourth generation assay, Enzymun-Test HIV Combi (Boehringer Mannheim(More)
Although human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) antigen assays are of limited value for monitoring antiretroviral therapy, they play an important role for confirmatory testing of fourth generation HIV screening enzyme immunoassay (EIA) reactive samples. In a multicenter study, a new automated rapid p24 antigen assay, Elecsys HIV Ag (Roche Diagnostics Boehringer(More)
The new automated Enzymun-Test anti-HBc Plus for the detection of antibodies to hepatitis B virus (HBV) core antigen (anti-HBc) after pretreatment with reducing agents dithiothreitol (25 degrees C; + DTT) or potassium bisulfite (37 degrees C; + MBS) was evaluated by testing 571 serum and plasma samples. The panel included dilution series of reference(More)
The availability of microcontrollers with medium/high performance at ever decreasing costs, enables the development of applications running on architectures composed of different processing elements suitably connected with each other. An electronic musical instrument typically includes an application processor and a set of peripheral microcontrollers that(More)
