Female chickens known to be heterozygous for resistance to subgroups A and B of the avian leukosis-sarcoma viruses were mated to males known to be homozygously resistant to both. The progeny were assayed both on the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) and in tissue culture for resistance to representative viruses of the A, B, and tentatively defined C subgroups.(More)
Bayer HealthCare LLC, Diagnostics Division, has developed several new assays on the ADVIA Centaur immunoassay system for the detection of markers of hepatitis B virus infection in human serum and plasma. This panel includes assays for: hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg), a confirmatory test method for HBsAg, antibodies to hepatitis B surface antigen(More)
OBJECTIVES We report the development of a fully automated, random access, chemiluminescent immunoassay, for the detection of human cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) in serum and plasma for use on the ACS:180(R) System. DESIGN AND METHODS This assay format uses a combination of two monoclonal antibodies covalently coupled to paramagnetic (PMP) particles as a solid(More)
A long-term cryopreservation study of vegetative cells of Micrococcus lutea ATCC 9341a, Micrococcus lutea ATCC 15957, and Staphylococcus epidermidis ATCC 12228 cells, used in our antibiotic bioassay procedure, was conducted. The cryoprotective abilities of 1% methylcellulose solution and a 15% glycerol solution at -14 degrees C were determined. More(More)
Standard curves of 5 antibiotics were determined in an antibiotic assay using bilayer and monolayer agar plates and AOAC-specified test organisms and agar media. Micrococcus luteus ATCC 9341a and antibiotic medium No. 2 were used to prepare the penicillin G standard curve. The same organism and antibiotic medium No. 11 were used to prepare the erythromycin(More)
Four serotypes of Salmonella enteritidis, Anatum ATCC 9270, Newbrunswick ATCC 1608, Oranienburg 200 E, and Pullorum RM, were studied to determine biological, chemical, or physical differences which might explain variations in Salmonella virulence as previously reported by McCullough and Eisele (J. Infect. Dis. 88:278-289, 1951; 89:259-265, 1951). These(More)
