A DNA chip, also referred to as a DNA microarray, is comparable to a computer chip. The key differentiating factor between the two is that a computer chip is imbedded with electronic circuitry, whereas a DNA gene chip is imbedded with DNA molecules. Or else it can be stated that DNA chip is a collection of DNA spots that are embedded on the solid surface. A DNA gene chip is about the size of a postage stamp. This technology has become very popular in the drug discovery and medical research sector as it significantly brings down research time. Browse Full Report with TOC @

Spectrometry is a widely used technique in analytical chemistry to identify the contents in a test sample with the help of interaction between mass and energy. There are three major types of spectrometry techniques, which are divided based on the method of analyzing the test sample: atomic spectrometry, mass spectrometry and molecular spectrometry.

Automated microbiology is the advanced microbiology technique that allows microbiologists to perform microbiology testing more quickly and accurately. Automated microbiology technique is an improved method for isolation, early detection, enumeration and characterization of micro organism and their products in clinical, food and environment industries. Automated microbiology techniques provide variety of experimental approaches such as sequencing and synthesis to modify or mimic a biological system. The main objective for using automated microbiology technologies is to develop and understand human diseases such as genetic diseases, cancer and identifies new molecular targets for drug discovery. In addition, the advancement in automated microbiology technique lowers the turnaround time, enhance quality control and boosts the accuracy of microbial experiments. Browse Full Report with TOC @

Bioburden is defined as the number in terms of percentage, colony or cell count of bacteria that thrive on a given unsterilized surface. Bioburden testing, also known as microbial limit testing provides quantification of the bacterial cell cultures on a given unsterilized surface. The major application of bioburden testing lies in implant fixation procedures that require testing ofcertain tolerable bioburden limit before implantation in the human body. The standard for bioburden testing in the US is regulated by the US FDA, whereas global standards are maintained by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization). The quantification for the standardization process is done in terms of colony forming unit (CFU). Browse Full Report with TOC @

Hospital microbiology testing refers to the area of clinical pathology related to the analysis of microorganisms such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. Various techniques such as culture techniques and immunoassays are implemented for rapid detection and identification of harmful microbial pathogens. Hospital microbiology tests accelerate microorganism determination, thereby helping in the rapid diagnosis of infection with accuracy. There have been remarkable advances in the field of microbiology testing, resulting into potential diagnostic platform and technologies such as molecular diagnostics, microbial culture, biochemical tests, etc. Browse Full Report with TOC @

Label free detection technology is a drug discovery tool that can be used for the detection of the molecular interactions. Unlike enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) and flow cytometry, this tool helps in the investigation of molecular interactions without spatial interference, auto fluorescent and quenching effects. The label free detection technology is specifically designed to detect endogenous targets in assays by eliminating the use of reporter labels like dyes, tags, or specialized reagents.
