Immunoassay for Glandular Fever Is Preferable to Leukocyte Ratio
An immunoassay for the detection of infectious mononucleosis heterophile antibodies in whole blood was compared with the ratio of lymphocytes to white cells as diagnostic tests.
Human Papilloma Virus Assays Evaluated for Clinical Performance
Two molecular assays for the detection of human papilloma virus DNA were evaluated as screening tools in a clinical setting and a genotyping assay was used for confirmation.
Biomarker Test Diagnoses Placental Function
A blood test can identify a biomarker that can aid in the diagnosis of early onset preeclampsia, a leading cause of maternal and perinatal mortality and morbidity.
Diagnostic Tool Delivers Large Scale Genetic Detection
A microarray system has been developed as a high-throughput diagnostic tool for the detection of beta-thalassemia, a genetic disorder that can lead to severe anemia.
Molecular Test Determines Tissue of Origin
Gene expression based on the Tissue of Origin Test can assist in identifying accurately and reliably the origin of metastatic or poorly differentiated tumors.
