Rapid and accurate species identification is not only important for biodiversity studies and pest quarantine and management, but in some cases may also influence the results of international trade negotiations. In this study, we developed a rapid species identification system for insects.
Webinar: Implementation, Impact, and Updating of Rapid Blood Culture Identification System in a Community Hospital Network. Bloodstream infections leading to sepsis are among the top 10 causes of mortality in the United States. It is commonly recognized that rapid identification and therapy can have a tremendous impact on patient recovery and hospital length of stay. Data collected over a.
The Next Generation Identification (NGI) system provides the criminal justice community with the world's largest electronic repository of biometric information.Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy is a rapid and nondestructive technology for monitoring atmospheric quality. The identification of each component from the FTIR spectra is a prerequisite for the accurate quantitative analysis of gaseous pollutants. Due to the overlap of different gas absorption peaks and the interference of water vapor in the actual measurement, the existing.PrintSearch is a Rapid ID, Book and Release biometric identification system using from one to ten fingerprints for enrollment. The system uses FBI certified 500 dpi scanners, providing quick, positive identification of individuals in local, state, regional or national databases, PrintSearch is ideal for any high security facility where positive identification is a mission critical requirement.

Background Rapid identification of positive blood cultures is important for initiation of optimal treatment in septic patients. Effects of automated, microarray-based rapid identification systems on antibiotic prescription against community-onset bacteremia (COB) remain unclear. Methods We prospectively enrolled 177 patients with 185 COB episodes (occurring within 72 h of admission) over 17.Read More
Rapid Confirmation and Identification of Campylobacter in Foods. Campylobacter are of great importance to the food industry as the major cause of bacterial food poisoning. Campylobacter species can be very interesting bacteria due to their relatively high sensitivity and fragility. This organism is unusual as, despite its virulence, it is easily killed by cooking, disinfection and exposure to.Read More
