Background: Acinetobacter calcoaceticus–baumannii (ACB) complex has emerged as an important nosocomial pathogen and is associated with life-threatening infections, especially among ICU patients, including neonates. Carbapenem resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii has emerged globally and is commonly mediated by bla OXA-23. Clinically significant in...

Joint latent class modeling is an appealing approach for evaluating the association between a longitudinal biomarker and clinical outcome when the study population is heterogeneous. The link between the biomarker trajectory and the risk of event is reflected by the latent classes, which accommodate the underlying population heterogeneity. The estim...
Here, we report a novel and universal methodology, termed “Antarctic thermolabile uracil-DNA-glycosylase (AUDG)-supplemented nucleic acid amplification techniques (NAAs) using a labeled-based nanoparticle lateral flow biosensor (LFB)” (AUDG-NAAs-LFB), which merges enzymatic (AUDG) digestion of contaminant amplicons with different nucleic acid ampli...

We have evaluated the feasibility of using femtosecond laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy with time-resolved detection of the spectra for determination of trace concentrations of chemical elements in water. The laser plasma was generated on the surface of aqueous solutions by a single pulse from a titanium:sapphire laser (pulse duration 40 fs, pu...
