How will agglutination reaction identify pathogenic bacteria?

How will agglutination reaction identify pathogenic bacteria?

Bacteria: Agglutination reactions often measure antibodies that will cause the agglutination of artificial particles containing substances from the bacteria coating them. The antibody, if present, causes these particles to cluster together and agglutinate. ...Read more

How could polymerase chain reaction detect bacteria and viruses?

How could polymerase chain reaction detect bacteria and viruses?

Specific DNA probes: Each organism has unique DNA and or RNA and probes specific to each organism can be created. Such probes allow the organisms to be detected in biological or other samples. For an example of such a test, visit this site: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC265465/ ...Read more

Pls help interpret urinalysis: reaction:8.0
specific gravity:1.005
pus cells 1-3
bacteria: moderate
ephitheli cells: few
a phospates: moderate?

Depends on your: Symptoms and the reason for the test. There are no obvious abnormalities in the data that you mention, but you should ask the doctor who ordered the test to interpret the results. A doctor will order a test only when there is a good reason to order it.. ...Read more

Urinalysis results: reaction PH 8.0/ leukocytes SMALL 1+ / WBC 2-5/ epithelial cells SOME/ bacteria SOME/ everything else is negative and normal.

Urinalysis results: reaction PH 8.0/ leukocytes SMALL 1+ / WBC 2-5/ epithelial cells SOME/ bacteria SOME/ everything else is negative and normal.

UA results: Minor variations in the components of a urinalysis can occur normally, but no one can safely judge whether an infection is present by reading UA results online The doctor who ordered the test can explain whether the UA results might mean an infection, or whether an infection is unlikely. If the diagnosis was no infection but you continue to feel ill later, a recheck is needed. ...Read more

I am 54 Male. urine report shows Leukocytes 2-5 and epithelial cells 5-10, RBC-Nil, Casts-Absent, Crystals - Absent, Bacteria-Absent, Reaction-Acidic,?

I am 54 Male. urine report shows Leukocytes 2-5 and epithelial cells 5-10, RBC-Nil, Casts-Absent, Crystals - Absent, Bacteria-Absent, Reaction-Acidic,?

Hard to say: 5-10 epithelial cells indicates that is a contaminated sample. The WBCs indicate there may be an infection of some kind somewhere. I would get a repeat clean-catch sample for reevaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Urinalysis result; acidic reaction; 6 pH and 0-1 rbc,1-2 pus cells,occasional squamous,few bacteria,rare mucus threads,rare amorphous urates,alarming?

Normal urine study: Those results are "within normal limits". You may want to drink a little bit more water to stay well hydrated. In the Philippines I recommend coconut water also. ...Read more

Explain the antibody reactions of agglutination?

Explain the antibody reactions of agglutination?

Antibody tests: Latex beads are coated with an antigen. You you have antibodies against that antigen, your serum may agglutinate the beads. A titer can be determined by diluting the serum. Sometimes, a high titer may not agglutinate until the serum is diluted (prozone effect). ...Read more
