With the introduction of the ß-Glucan test for determining (1->3)-ß-D-glucan in serum or plasma, FUJIFILM Wako presents a monotest assay which provides quick and easy results for the early detection of invasive fungal infections.
During the 29th European Congress of Clinical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (ECCMID) meeting in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on 13-16 April 2019 researchers from Italy and The Netherlands presented study results on FUJIFILM Wako’s ß-Glucan Test.
FUJIFILM Wako Chemicals Europe GmbH is now offering the ß-Glucan Test for early detection of invasive fungal infection by a kinetic turbidimetric monotest method using the Toxinometer MT-6500 instrument.
Free-radical and cationic photoinitiators are often used in UV-curing systems. However, there can be problems with oxygen inhibition and shrinkage of polymerised product in the free-radical processes and with metal corrosion in the cationic processes.
Investigators from the University Hospital Essen, Germany, published data on the efficacy of the biomarkers AFP, AFP-L3 and DCP alone, in combination and as part of the GALAD score using a major cohort from their clinic.
