A CLOSER LOOK AT WESTERN BLOT

Western blot, is known as immunoblot, is a technique used for protein detection from a mixture of proteins and has its application in immunology, molecular biology, biochemistry, and cell biology fields.

Why an ELISA test is better than a Rapid or an RT-PCR test

The RT-PCR, ELISA, and RAPID tests are various diagnostic methods used to detect pathogens or antibodies to the pathogen based on the disease life cycle. The Three Techniques have their own unique sets of advantages and disadvantages, and hence it is vital to make the right choice for effective diagnosis.

Best Malaria Test Kit: Rapid Vs. ELISA

Malaria is one of the most common infectious tropical diseases and an enormous public health problem. It is a parasitic disease characterized by fever, chills, and anemia caused by malaria parasites spread from one human to another through infected Anopheles mosquitoes bite. Four malaria parasites can infect humans: Plasmodium falciparum, P. vivax, P. ovale, and […]

What Does The Test D-Dimer Result Mean/ Indicate

D-Dimer is a protein that is produced after blood clotting and subsequent breakdown of blood clots. Whenever there is damage to any body part or bleeding, intrinsic or extrinsic coagulation pathways are activated, resulting in the formation of a blood clot at the site.

What Is D-Dimer

Mapping vectors and Disease Transmission: The Malaria Diagnostic Survey

Malaria is a parasitic disease caused by the parasite Plasmodium (Protozoan parasite) with high mortality rates. The disease vector is the female Anopheles mosquito. The two notable species most prevalent in India are P.vivax and P.falciparum. The infection with P.falciparum is the most deadly form of Malaria.

Closing the gap in Surveillance and Treatment in Malaria: The Diagnostic Approach

In India, P.vivax and P.falciparum cause the bulk of Malarial infections. While P.vivax is more in the plains, P.falcipraum is prominent more in the forest and peripheral regions. As a result, the central India region and North Eastern states have high transmission of Malaria compared to other areas. Rugged geographical terrain, regional conflicts, and inadequate […]

Immune response to infections and aftermath: Role of CRP

Inflammation can occur with any infection or wound in the body, and healing is important to understand the recovery stage. Hence, C-reactive protein (CRP) comes in handy as the efficient blood marker test. The CRP is released from the liver, and its concentration in the blood measures its level. Since the CRP level rises with […]
