Effect of exposure to stress conditions on propidium monoazide (PMA)-qPCR based Campylobacter enumeration in broiler carcass rinses

PMA-qPCR enumeration method was evaluated for its consistency and compared to the culture-based enumeration for both artificially and natural contaminated broiler carcass rinses. The PMA effect was further ...

Evaluation of a hierarchical ascendant clustering process implemented in a veterinary syndromic surveillance system.

by hierarchical ascendant classification (HAC). In the present study, this HAC clustering process was evaluated using a reference set of data that, for the purpose of this evaluation, was a priori ...

Serological diagnosis of bovine neosporosis: a Bayesian evaluation of two antibody ELISA tests for in vivo diagnosis in purchased and abortion cattle.

currently used in Belgium for bovine sera (TEST A and TEST B). The goal of this study is to evaluate these tests used at their current cut-offs, with a no gold standard approach, for the test purpose of (1) ...

MALDI-TOF typing highlights geographical and fluconazole resistance clusters in Candida glabrata2188

TOF also classified the isolates with respect to their fluconazole susceptibility profile. Further prospective studies are required to evaluate the capacity of MALDI- TOF typing to investigate C. ...

How appropriate is therapeutic drug monitoring for lithium? Data from the Belgian external quality assessment scheme.

concentrations. The present study aimed to assess the appropriateness of lithium assays used by Belgian laboratories, and to evaluate acceptability of their clinical interpretations. METHODS: Nine in-house serum ...

Quality control in culture collections: confirming identity of filamentous fungi by MALDI-TOF MS

desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI- TOF MS) was evaluated as an alternative method for fast, robust and objective identity controls in the routine work of the BCCM / IHEM fungal ...

Comparison of sample types and analytical methods for the detection of highly campylobacter-colonized broiler flocks at different stages in the poultry meat production chain.

test (Singlepath(®) test), was evaluated as a rapid method for the qualitative detection of Campylobacter in highly colonized broiler batches. Campylobacter counts differed significantly between sample ...

Offering Self-Sampling Kits for HPV Testing to Reach Women Who Do Not Attend in the Regular Cervical Cancer Screening Program.

amplification, are less sensitive and specific on self-samples. The introduction of self-sampling strategies should be carefully prepared and evaluated in pilot studies integrated in well-organized settings before ...

New trait-specific qualitative SYBR®Green qPCR methods to expand the panel of GMO screening methods used in the CoSYPS

Method acceptance parameters such as the sensitivity, specificity and repeatability were assessed as well as the robustness of the methods. Additionally, the reproducibility was evaluated by transferring ...
