The purchase is for a complete service that includes approximately 25 pcs of professional rollover test device (detecting influenza a and b and rs viral nucleic acid testing
on patient~s nose and / or throat brush and / or nasopharynx sample), device requirements, and software requirements, tests, reagents, controls, and other possible consumables (supplies) required for use (excluding sampling equipment not included in the purchase); at the start of the contract, the subscriber orders 10 devices.
Three more laboratories providing nucleic acid testing
(NAT) will be built by the Health Ministry (KKM) by the end of the year, bringing a total of four NAT laboratories nationwide including the existing one at National Blood Centre (PDN).
The assay runs on the Procleix Panther system--a fully automated platform utilizing Nucleic Acid Testing
(NAT) for blood screening.
Gordon said that while the PRC is always very careful to ensure that the donated blood is free from HIV, Hepatitis B and other transfusion transmitted infections, the organization will soon provide nucleic acid testing
KARACHI -- Secretary, Sindh Blood Transfusion Authority (SBTA) Dr Zahid Hasan Ansari has said Nucleic Acid Testing
(NAT) technique would be introduced in four Regional Blood Transfusion Centers (RBTCs) of Sindh province to reduce risk of blood transmitted diseases.
They said Nucleic Acid Testing
(NAT) was a highly sensitive and advanced technique which had reduced the window period of TTIs and increased safety of the overall blood transfusion.
KARACHI -- Health experts here on Wednesday sought mandatory application of updated technique Nucleic Acid Testing
(NAT) to ensure timely screening of donated blood against all sorts of associated infections.
'Nucleic acid testing
(NAT) is the most advanced tool which uses Real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) technology to detect the presence of viral infections including the DNA and RNA viruses by simply screening the whole blood and plasma samples,' he added.
The device is an integrated nucleic acid testing
system that fully automates all necessary steps from sample processing through amplification, detection and data reduction, said the company.
The cost of identifying eight mosquito-borne ZIKV infections through individual-unit nucleic acid testing
was $5.3 million per ZIKV RNA-positive donation.
For the purpose of this study, the global tuberculosis diagnostics market is segmented into test types which includes radiographic methods, laboratory methods, nucleic acid testing
, phage assay, cytokine detection test, detection of drug resistance, and Mantoux test.
Zika virus nucleic acid testing
(NAT) should be offered as part of routine obstetric care to asymptomatic pregnant women with ongoing possible Zika virus exposure (residing in or frequently traveling to an area with risk for Zika virus transmission); serologic testing is no longer routinely recommended because of the limitations of IgM tests, specifically the potential persistence of IgM antibodies from an infection before conception and the potential for false-positive results.
