From history of Halloween to modern-day trends like “Trick or Treat” or “Bobbing of Apples”, let’s take up the quiz and answer the terrifying trivia with some spooky quiz questions.
Working with pipettes and micropipettes is a core job for scientists/researchers/lab experts. No matter how amazing their hands might be, they aren’t nimble enough to properly handle the minuscule portions of liquids that need to be fed into test tubes. This is the reason scientists prefer using pipettes to transfer samples instead of traditional method of pouring them out by hand. As the laboratory’s demand for accuracy and precision grows, so does the importance of understanding and developing an optimal pipetting technique.

The United Nations aims to end the TB epidemic by 2030. But with 10 million people newly infected just in 2020, meeting that goal will require aggressive efforts at early detection. For many years, TB detection has required a sputum sample. In fact, tuberculosis researchers and clinicians have long been taught not to accept samples that look like saliva. That’s because saliva might not contain enough bacteria to show up under the microscope or grow in culture. Even with a good sputum sample, though, traditional diagnostic techniques can miss a lot of cases. And there are other downsides to sputum.Read More
One such technology that revamped the healthcare industry in the past few years is the concept of the point-of-care system, better known as point-of-care technology. It is an advanced technology used to provide better care to the patient to improve the outcomes. Its most common examples are bedside terminals, hand-held tablets, PCs, and software that physicians and nurses use to capture all patient medical information and keep their health in check.Read our Blog
