Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), a primary marker for many diseases including various cancers, is important in clinical tumor diagnosis and antenatal screening. Most immunoassays provide high sensitivity and accuracy for determining AFP, but they are expensive, often complex, time-consuming procedures. A simple and rapid point-of-care system that integrates Eu(More)
In our present study, we investigated the mechanism of Cd(II) biosorption from aqueous solution by Pseudomonas plecoglossicida using different instrumental techniques. The adsorption kinetics fitted well with the pseudo second-order model, suggesting that the Cd(II) adsorption by P. plecoglossicida consisted of a chemisorption and a physisorption process.(More)
OBJECTIVE The fraction of circulating cell-free fetal (cff) DNA in maternal plasma is a critical parameter for aneuploidy screening with non-invasive prenatal testing, especially for those samples located in equivocal zones. We developed an approach to quantify cff DNA fractions directly with sequencing data, and increased cff DNAs by optimizing library(More)
Exosomes are cell-derived vesicles and are abundant in biological fluids; they contain RNA molecules which may serve as potential diagnostic biomarkers in 'precision medicine'. To promote the clinical application of exosomal RNA (exoRNA), many isolation methods must be compared and validated. Exosomes in cell culture medium (CCM) and serum may be isolated(More)
In this paper, a novel time-resolved fluorescence immunoassay (TRFIA) is described that allows the simultaneous quantitative detection of hepatitis B virus surface antigen (HBsAg) and hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg) in human serum to aid the diagnosis and monitoring of hepatitis B virus infection. The proposed method was developed based on a two-step sandwich(More)
