In the Special Hospital Sv. Katarina available rapid testing on COVID19. Results ready within 15 to 30 minutes!

first_imgWhat is crucial and game changer, especially for the entire tourism sector, is that test results are obtained within 15 to 30 minutes. Due to the high pressure on the entire health system, rapid testing that gives results in 30 minutes or less, depending on the amount of simultaneous tests and the number of professional staff, will certainly improve the overall situation and the pressure on health facilities. “We are aware that governments and health systems are under great pressure to increase the ability to test SARS-CoV-2 to effectively manage the spread of the virus. The high-volume antigen test is a valuable addition to the portfolio to help diagnose SARS-CoV-2 infection. The ability to quickly and correctly determine if someone has a SARS-CoV-2 infection is crucial to inform patient management decisions and to combat the spread of COVID-19. Roche remains committed to supporting governments, healthcare professionals and patients in the fight against this pandemic with the help of our diagnostic solutions Said Thomas Schinecker, CEO of Roche Diagnostics. “We are also given access to the National Database so that in case of a positive test, we can enter all positive people on SARS-CoV-2 in the database”Emphasizes Jadranka Primorac. By the way, this is a product of the pharmaceutical company Roche, The Elecsys® SARS-CoV-2 Antigen test, which according to official information from the Roche site, a highly accurate laboratory immunoassay for in vitro qualitative detection of the nucleocapsid antigen SARS-CoV-2. As I wrote in the analysis of global air traffic activation, they are needed three key prerequisites: Standardization of security protocols in airports and airlines, fast testing, ie fast obtaining of test results, and contactless thermal camera technology capable of automatically screening a large number of passengers. Photo: Sv. Catherine When we talk about the tourism sector, fast testing is certainly suitable for zračne luke, as well as for everyone passengers who want to be tested quickly and have a negative test, which is an obligation to enter most countries. The SARS-CoV-2 antigen test is an extremely valuable diagnostic test with high specificity (99.68%) and enters the family of tests that are performed in direct contact with the patient and for which results are obtained shortly after testing (Point of care tests). ). “Rapid testing has also been done for this purpose, for emergency diagnosis and triage to relieve the entire health system, it is also suitable for people who have been in contact with an infected person or have clinical symptoms. It is a test by the pharmaceutical company Roche that put the test on the market at the end of 9 months”, He points out Jadranka Primorac, dipl. oec., member of the Management Board of the Special Hospital Sv. Katarina adds that testing is also good for quickly testing tourists right at airports. Price testing is 350 kuna, and Primorac adds that rapid testing for Covid19 is done at their place in the Special Hospital Sv. Katarina in Zagreb, in a separate unit, in accordance with all security protocols.center_img Jadranka Primorac, St. Catherine’s Special Hospital: Rapid testing was done with the aim of relieving the entire health system Rapid testing is a major challenge for the global recovery of tourism, as well as one of the three key elements for air traffic activation. / / / ACTIVATION OF AIR TRAFFIC IS KEY TO THE RECOVERY OF TOURISM, AND FOR THIS THERE ARE THREE PREREQUISITES Photo cover: Polina Tankilevitch, Pexels.com, Sv. Katarina / Illustration: HrTurizam.hr Special Hospital Sv. Katarina was the first in Croatia to make it possible on the market quick test to test on Covid19, which gives results for 15 to 30 minutes. The St. Catherine’s Polyclinic points out that the prices of the tests are 350 kuna, and for all inquiries about the tests you can contact them. HERE Regarding the standardization of security protocols as well as the introduction of contactless thermal camera technology at airports, final negotiations are already underway under the leadership of International Air Transport Association (IATA)) and it is a matter of months, if not weeks, when they will be agreed. On the other hand, a couple of global companies from the USA and Israel have also released quick tests for testing on Covid19, and now Roche has joined them. What is certain is that in the coming months, rapid testing will be made possible globally, which is important for the activation of the tourism sector. The Elecsys SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Immunoassay works on all immunochemical analyzers that are widely available worldwide. These fully automated systems can provide test results in about 18 minutes for a single test (excluding sample collection, transport, and preparation time), with a throughput of up to 300 tests per hour from a single analyzer. The aforementioned laboratory-automated antigen test allows for reduced costs and errors due to the removal of manual handling, as well as fast turning and high throughput, according to official Roche information. last_img read more

Hampden and Sebasticook Are Sheriff’s Cup Winners

first_imgELLSWORTH — A game-ending three pointer boosted the Hampden boys to a 51-49 championship win over Beals in last weekend’s ninth annual Hancock County Sheriff’s Cup basketball tournament. Katherine Jordan of the Downeast Family YMCA girls’ team drives against an Old Town defender.—MIKE OLESOn the girls’ side, it was Sebasticook who pulled away from the Bangor Y in the last few minutes to win 34-23 in Sunday’s championship game. The three-day tournament drew a field of 32 teams of sixth- to eighth-graders — 16 each in the girls’ and boys’ divisions — with games played at four area schools. Corey Bagley, who plays a major role in organizing the tournament for the Sheriff’s Department, expressed gratitude for the help of the many volunteers who worked both out front and behind the scenes to make the tournament a success. This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textWalmart is the tournament’s primary sponsor. “Without Walmart, I am not sure we would be able to do the things we do,” said Bagley. Proceeds still are being tallied but the tournament customarily raises several thousands of dollars for the charities supported by the Sheriff’s Charities Fund, and it is expected that this year’s tournament will yield similar results. Venues for this year’s tournament included Ellsworth High School, Trenton Elementary School, Blue Hill Consolidated School and George Stevens Academy.

New bioprinting method creates tubular structures that mimic vessels ducts in the

first_img Source:https://www.brighamandwomens.org/ Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Aug 25 2018A team of Brigham and Women’s Hospital researchers have developed a way to bioprint tubular structures that better mimic native vessels and ducts in the body. The 3-D bioprinting technique allows fine-tuning of the printed tissues’ properties, such as number of layers and ability to transport nutrients. These more complex tissues offer potentially viable replacements for damaged tissue. The team describes its new approach and results in a paper published on Aug. 23 in Advanced Materials.”The vessels in the body are not uniform,” said Yu Shrike Zhang, PhD, senior author on the study and an associate bioengineer in BWH’s Department of Medicine. “This bioprinting method generates complex tubular structures that mimic those in the human system with higher fidelity than previous techniques.”Related StoriesImplanted device uses microcurrent to exercise heart muscle in cardiomyopathy patientsHome-based support network helps stroke patients adjust after hospital dischargeNew research links “broken heart syndrome” to cancerMany disorders damage tubular tissues: arteritis, atherosclerosis and thrombosis damage blood vessels, while urothelial tissue can suffer inflammatory lesions and deleterious congenital anomalies.To make the 3D bioprinter’s “ink,” the researchers mixed the human cells with a hydrogel, a flexible structure composed of hydrophilic polymers. They optimized the chemistry of the hydrogel to allow the human cells to proliferate, or “seed,” throughout the mixture.Next, they filled the cartridge of a 3D bioprinter with this bio-ink. They fitted the bioprinter with a custom nozzle that would allow them to continuously print tubular structures with up to three layers. Once the tubes were printed, the researchers demonstrated their ability to transport nutrients by perfusing fluids.The researchers found that they could print tissues mimicking both vascular tissue and urothelial tissue. They mixed human urothelial and bladder smooth muscle cells with the hydrogel to form the urothelial tissue. To print the vascular tissue, they used a mixture of human endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells and the hydrogel.The printed tubes had varying sizes, thicknesses and properties. According to Zhang, structural complexity of bioprinted tissue is critical to its viability as a replacement for native tissue. That’s because natural tissues are complex. For instance, blood vessels are comprised of multiple layers, which in turn are made up of various cell types.The team plans to continue preclinical studies to optimize the bio-ink composition and 3D-printing parameters before testing for safety and effectiveness.”We’re currently optimizing the parameters and biomaterial even further,” said Zhang. “Our goal is to create tubular structures with enough mechanical stability to sustain themselves in the body.”last_img read more
