Western Blotting- Principle, Steps, Extraction, Applications

Western blotting, also known as immunoblotting, is a widely used laboratory technique in molecular biology and biochemistry for the detection and analysis of specific proteins within a complex mixture of proteins. It allows researchers to identify and quantify target proteins based on their size and antigenic properties.

DNA Fragments detection in the Blood: New Diagnostic Test for TB

Myobacteria were the first bacterial infections to be discovered in humans, and they continue to cause serious illnesses till date. Robert Koch described the bacterium that causes tuberculosis in 1882. Since then, a vast number of mycobacterial species that cause pulmonary and extrapulmonary infections in humans and wildlife have been reported. Two primary pathogenic organisms,

Surgical site infections (SSIs): Identification of bacterial pathogen and their antibiogram

Surgical Site Infection (SSI) is a type of infection resulting from a surgical procedure. Center for Disease Control (CDC) defines SSI as proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms which develops in an incision site either within the skin or sub-cutaneous fat (superficial), musculo-facial layers (deep) or in an organ or cavity if opened during surgery. It occurs

Noncommunicable disorders (NCDs) that worsen clinical outcomes in Dengue patients include diabetes, renal failure, and hypertension

Introduction: Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral disease that has rapidly spread in many countries worldwide in recent years. Endemic across most provinces, dengue incidence has increased in recent years largely due to the expansion of the vector Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus, as well as the movement of people and the introduction of imported cases
