Tube Polypropylene: A Neglected Critical Parameter for Protein Adsorption During Biospecimen Storage

, : Tube Polypropylene: A Neglected Critical Parameter for Protein Adsorption During Biospecimen Storage. Biopreservation and Biobanking 13(4): 296-298

This biospecimen research case study illustrates the importance of a neglected pre-analytical factor, the polypropylene type of storage tubes. We measured amyloid β1-42 peptide and showed that a non-irradiated, homopolymer type of polypropylene has the lowest adsorption properties.

The pathogenicity of serotype 8 fowl adenovirus (FAV), isolated from gizzard erosions of slaughtered broiler chickens, was investigated. In experiment 1, 29 5-day-old specific-pathogen-free (SPF) chickens were inoculated with the isolates of serot...

Background: Use of ITRA in alloBMT pts has been limited by a lack of data on potential Cyt P450 DI with FK506 and CyA. We conducted a PK study to assess the DI when both agents are administered IV, and then characterized the magnitude of the inter...
