An efficient rearing system rapidly producing large quantities of poultry red mites, Dermanyssus gallinae (Acari: Dermanyssidae), under laboratory conditions.

The red mite of poultry, Dermanysus gallinae, is one of the most economically deleterious ectoparasites that affect laying chickens of eggs in many parts of the world. New approaches to D. gallinae control often require the maintenance of D. gallinae colonies...

Identifying Corneal Infections in Formalin-Fixed Specimens Using Next Generation Sequencing.

We test the capacity of new generation sequencing, associated with computer analysis, identifying a range of organisms causing infectious keratitis. This retrospective study evaluated 16 cases of infectious keratitis and four corners of control in fixed fabrics formulated in the pathology...

Synthesis of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes from Plastic Waste Using a Stainless-Steel CVD Reactor as Catalyst.

The elimination of non-biodegradable plastic waste without new upgrade / demotion is not acceptable on the environment and many methods to overcome the problem have been proposed. In this case, we indicate a simple method for creating high-value nanomaterials from plastic...

A simple tube adapter to expedite and automate thawing of viably frozen cells.

Although cryopreserved cell specimens are used throughout biomedical research, the sample thaw process is high-intensive and prone to an error. Here we describe a small laboratory device that flows a non-frozen cell bottle with a conical tube containing hot cell culture...
