The choice of a diagnostic method depends on the characteristics of the herd to be analysed. Two herds with different prevalences of enzootic bovine leukaemia were chosen to study the concordance between agar gel immunodiffusion (AGID), enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods. PCR, an increasingly used(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE) and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus haemolyticus (MRSHa) are important coagulase-negative staphylococci. They are often isolated from bacteremia in humans mainly due to their ability to form biofilm on the surfaces of medical devices. Papain is a complex mixture of proteolytic enzymes and(More)
This work describes some recent results on the biomedical use of infrared (IR) images under three aspects. One is the use of thermal imaging for 3D modelling of the human body with special focus on the reproduction of the breast geometry. Such technique could be used for breast reconstruction or choose of external prosthesis to be used for temperature(More)
