Performance Goals for the Internal Quality Control of Multichannel Hematology Analyzers; Approved Standard (NCCLS document H26-A) provides recommendations for performance goals for the internal quality control of multichannel hematology analyzers on the basis of the use of physical and chemical standards, accepted reference methods, subcommittee recommendations on what is currently achievable, and the concept of medical usefulness. Critical performance characteristics of quality control systems… Expand
Quantitative MRCP Imaging: Accuracy, Repeatability, Reproducibility, and Cohort‐Derived Normative Ranges
TLDR
Investigating the accuracy, scan/rescan repeatability, and cross‐scanner reproducibility of a novel quantitative MRCP tool on phantoms and in vivo indicates that quantitative M RCP provides accurate, repeatable, and reproducible measurements capable of objectively assessing cholangiopathic change.

Sensitivity and specificity of two dried blood spot methods for HIV-1 viral load monitoring among patients in Hanoi, Vietnam
TLDR
Evaluated two DBS testing methods in patients receiving ART at an HIV clinic in Hanoi, Vietnam found that the Roche DBS-FVE method performed well with sensitivity and specificity greater than 96% at a VL threshold of 1000 copies/m, adding to the growing body of evidence supporting the use of DBS VL testing for ART monitoring.

Hazard assessment of Staphylococcus with positive coagulase in meat produced and distributed in the Northern regions of Cameroon
TLDR
The results reveal that the SPC found in meat poses a threat to meat consumers in the northern part of Cameroon. Expand
Some Studies on Phenotypic and Genotypic Characters of Small Colony Variants Staphylococcus aureus Isolated from Dairy Cows Infected with Mastitis in Egypt
TLDR
The results showed the significance of SCVs S.aureus in herd health, as a result of difficulty of its diagnosis, the percentage ofSCVs infection may be increased, so more attention should be paid for the investigation of observed colony morphologies. Expand
Establishment of Adult Reference Intervals for Selected Biochemical Analytes in Adult Rwandan Population
TLDR
This research presents a novel and scalable approach that aims to provide real-time information about the immune system’s response to natural disasters and its applications in rural areas. Expand
Study on the Inhibitory Activity of a Synthetic Defensin Derived from Barley Endosperm against Common Food Spoilage Yeast
TLDR
The potential application of a synthetic defensin peptide derived from barley endosperm is examined, and its inhibitory effect against common spoilage yeasts and mechanisms of action were characterised, providing further support for its application in food preservation. Expand
African peppermint (Mentha piperita) from Morocco: Chemical composition and antimicrobial properties of essential oil
