Next generation sequencing is a term used to describe a variety of modern sequencing technologies. They allow for sequencing of DNA and RNA more cheaply and quickly than previously used Sanger sequencing and have revolutionized the study of genetics. The next generation sequencing process involves breaking up of DNA or RNA into multiple pieces whereupon adapters are added and libraries sequenced before they’re reassembled. One of the critical differences is that millions of fragments are sequenced in massive parallel fashion, thus reducing costs and improving speed and accuracy.  The advantage of cost-effectiveness, high sequencing speed, high ...

You may want to drug test your employees to make sure your workplace is safe, employees are productive and you’re not faced with any liabilities stemming from drug use. However, you can’t just do drug tests on everyone without understanding when it is legal to test for drugs and when doing so would be invasive. Drug tests for potential employees You can require a drug test of someone to whom you have offered employment and make employment contingent on passing the test. If you do this, you need to do it for all potential employees and not just single out a few, as this could be regarded as discrimination.  One of the easiest and quickest ways to ...

Accuracy, precision and cost-effectiveness are very important.  A slight change in a formula, calculation, procedure or even an environmental condition could make a significant difference. A successful maintenance strategy is one of the most important steps for a production plant to reach the required level of reliability.  A risk-based approach to maintenance isn’t applied Treating every piece of equipment equally when it comes to maintenance is a mistake. It is better to classify equipment on the basis of its impact on production ...

It’s the Wild West when it comes to treating dry eyes after LASIK. Overblown metaphor? I’m not so sure. I’m a LASIK surgeon who answers patients’ questions (yes, some of us talk to them!) about post-LASIK dry eye on a daily basis. Those conversations always feel like I’m trying to create some order in an unknown and lawless land. There’s rarely a concern or confusion about the steroid or antibiotic prescriptions. It’s always the treatments for dryness that feel as vague and shadowy as an old-fashioned, swinging-doors saloon. There’s a constant sense of “are there rules here? Is there some routine everyone knows but me? What’s inside this bottle?” Our goal ...

As much as you’d like to, you cannot always provide for the care your loved ones need. You can’t afford to quit your job because you have a family member who is ill, injured, or disabled. So, what will you do?   Burning the candle at both ends, trying to keep your job and do everything a caregiver would is impossible. You might manage at first, but sooner or later, something must give. You’ll either make a mistake at work or home. An error like this, made through sheer exhaustion, can have lasting consequences.   If you’re facing such a challenge, consider introducing in-home care for your loved ones. Remember that care for yourself while ...

Staying up-to-date in the pharmacy industry isn’t easy, but this is something all practitioners must do. It is a constant battle for a pharmacist, as duties at work and at home can easily get in the way or you simply can forget. Learning and developing as a pharmacist is a lifelong commitment and isn't something which can be accomplished just once or done all at one time. There are lots of areas to stay informed about such as recommendations, literature, associations, continuing pharmacy education (CPE), and laws, but remember that this is absolutely not an all inclusive listing. Another thing to consider is different professions may challenge one to ...

Pillboxes and blister packs -- the sheets of tablets or capsules enclosed in a plastic bubble -- are simple, portable, and inexpensive tools for the management of daily prescription medication. According to research conducted at Mount Allison University and elsewhere, however, these devices are not always used as intended. For example, older people were found to fill pillboxes relying on their memory and visual recognition of the pills, without referring back to prescription labels on the original vials. In addition, the pillboxes used most commonly were 7-day organizers, without compartments for different times of the day, risking errors for pills that need ...

Success is never guaranteed but knowing how to avoid certain roadblocks can help when it comes to product development.

You might change the product’s intended use or make it too complex. It’s often smarter to launch a simpler product that solves a particular problem. Adding excessive features also means additional ...

Throughout the day, we often find ourselves busy with multiple tasks. Exhaustion can quickly set in after a long day of work, errands, and extracurricular activities. However, it isn't always easy to get to sleep. Aside from that, it can also be difficult to stay asleep at times. There are, however, sleep aids that may help you get a good night's rest.  How Does Sleep Occur? Through the hours of the day, the body's  circadian rhythms  and  sleep-wake homeostasis  work together to reduce wakefulness and cause you to become sleepy.
