Evaluation of the INDICAID COVID-19 Rapid Antigen Test in Symptomatic Populations and Asymptomatic Community Testing

January 17, 2022 0 Comments

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, there is an increasing need for rapid, accessible assays for SARS-CoV-2 detection. We present a clinical evaluation and real-world implementation of the INDICAID COVID-19 rapid antigen test (INDICAID rapid test). A multisite clinical evaluation of the INDICAID rapid test using prospectively collected nasal (bilateral anterior) swab samples from symptomatic subjects …

Quantum dot thermometry at ultra-low temperature in a dilution refrigerator with a 4He immersion cell

January 17, 2022 0 Comments

Experiments carried out at a temperature of a few millikelvins require efficient thermalization schemes, low-pass filtering of the measurement strains, and low-noise electronics. Here, we report on the modifications to a business dilution refrigerator with a base temperature of three.5 mK that allow us to decrease the electron temperature to six.7 mK measured from the …

September 30, 2021 0 Comments

The assortment of microorganisms residing in the mammalian gastrointestinal tract, termed the intestine microbiota, has been proven to have profound impacts on host well being and more and more is considered a viable therapeutic goal. Clinical research of fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT) have demonstrated potential efficacy of microbiota-based therapies for ailments together with Clostridioides difficile …

Biochar-based fertilizer amendments improve the soil microbial community structure in a karst mountainous area

August 20, 2021 0 Comments

Biochar-based fertilizer modification can improve soil properties partly as a result of stimulated microbial actions and growths. The karst ecosystem is vulnerable to degradation and accounts for a giant proportion of southwest China. Understanding of the response of the microbial community structure to biochar-based fertilizer software is of nice significance in karst soil restoration. A …

Functional diversity and identity of plant genotypes regulate rhizodeposition and soil microbial activity

July 20, 2021 0 Comments

Our understanding of the linkages between plant diversity and soil carbon and nutrient biking is primarily derived from research on the species degree, whereas the significance and mechanisms of diversity results on the genotype degree are poorly understood. Here we examined how genotypic diversity and identity, and related variation in useful traits, inside a typical …

Effects of Differences in Resistant Starch Content of Rice on Intestinal Microbial Composition

July 20, 2021 0 Comments

The purpose of this examine was to guage the consequences of resistant starch (RS) and fats ranges on the intestine microbiome in C57BL/6 mice. Three ranges of RS from three varieties of rice had been the main supply of carbohydrates and fats ranges had been low (10%) and excessive (39%). We confirmed that RS decreased …

Hydrodynamics of microbial filter feeding.

Hydrodynamics of microbial filter feeding.
May 11, 2020 0 Comments

Microbial filter feeders are an important group of grazers, significant to the microbial loop, aquatic food webs, and biogeochemical cycling. Our understanding of microbial filter feeding is poor, and, importantly, it is unknown what force microbial filter feeders must generate to process adequate amounts of water. Also, the trade-off in the filter spacing remains unexplored, despite its simple formulation: A filter too …
