Mononuclear pleocytosis (>5 cells per microlitre) is found in approximately one third of the MS patients.
However, although the low performance of Paracheck found in this study, it seems to have some advantages: the sensitivity of Paracheck test during the follow up days showed that the test could have an impact in the diagnosis of Rfalciparum malaria because of the high sensitivity obtained in the DI (98%), with a considerable density of parasitaemia, of > 100 parasites per microlitre of blood and in the negative cases as demonstrated by this study during the last scheduled follow up days (D14, 21 and 28).
The minimum CD4+ value for females was 11/microlitre and the maximum was 1000/ microlitre, whereas the minimum value for males was 2/microlitre and the maximum was 891/microlitre.
This innovative pipette tip technology incorporates reliable capillary physics via a capillary metering pocket on the internal portion of the tip (Figure 1) and combines integral microlitre dilution to transfer small, nanolitre volumes of compounds directly from DMSO source plates into assay plates with excellent mixing.
The MASCOT project's equipment uses an acoustic resonator on a sensor chip to check for a specific resonance frequency given off by gases, using a benchmark gas sample of less than one microlitre. This said a European Commission note "will allow an immediate response to bad air quality." Bertil Hok, CEO of project partner Sweden's Hok Instruments, said: "Our five senses aren't reliable enough and often we don't notice bad air quality, before it is too late." It has been working with Infineon Technologies SensoNor AS and research institute SINTEF, both from Norway, and Hok Instruments AB from Sweden.
Writing in the New Scientist magazine, Clifton Bishop of the American West Virginia University said a test based on RNA (ribonucleic acid) can pin-point the time a crime took place by testing just one microlitre of blood left at the scene.
