Microbiology Time – March 2023
This month, we traveled From Ethiopia to Canada to collect three exciting studies to share on our Microbiology Time. From the analysis of the high-risk HPV infection prevalence in the African country to a veterinary case report on a lethal fungal infection in a captive bullfrog and a research paper amplifying human DNA from leeches to identify a victim or suspect of a crime. Enjoy!
Microbiology Time – February 2023
It’s the second month of 2023, and it’s the second microbiology time of the year! In this edition, we selected studies covering self-collected vaginal samples for molecular assays, SARS-Cov-2 detection from rectal and nasal swabs, and buccal swabbing for BRCA testing. Enjoy your reading!
Microbiology Time – January 2023
With the studies selected in the first edition of 2023’s Microbiology time, we explore three peculiar sides of our WISE approach: surface hygiene monitoring, HPV self-collection, and automated MALDI-TOF target preparation. Enjoy!
The new lab-Intelligence platform is on its way!
MicroHub®, our modern lab-intelligence platform, is finally on its way to the market.
