When using monofilaments to determine nerve health, the Rapid Threshold Procedure is a method promoted by Connecticut Bioinstruments to quickly find a threshold. It relies on the proper calibration of the monofilaments, including the inability to confound pain and touch sensations.

Rapid HIV test?

The days of having to wait for a week or longer for the results of an HIV test are gone. Rapid HIV testing can now be completed as an individual waits for the results. This fact drastically cuts the anxiety associated with the testing and makes reporting the results much easier for medical staff as well.

Is it just one simple blood test to see if are HIV positive?

Your HIV testing experience may vary depending on where you seek services. Standard testing procedure for many HIV testing sites involve a two-step process. Rapid response, oral HIV testing is available in many locations. The test collects a cell sample from the gums and detects antibodies associated with HIV infection. If a rapid response test is reactive for HIV antibodies, a person is considered "preliminarily positive" for HIV infection. After an initial positive, the most common confirmatory tests may be administered orally or by blood draw. Getting tested for HIV is a very sexually responsible behavior. Good luck!

Is bactometer a rapid testing or traditional testing method?

Technically it is a rapid test method- since it is based on the measurement of an endpoint that typically occurs earlier than the endpoint of a classical micro method, which of course is the visual detection of growth - seen either as turbidty or colonies by the human eye. It does however have some ties to classical methods- it still is growth based.

What is the primary product line for Rapid Prototyping Services?

Rapid prototyping is a process where a working model or prototype is developed for the purpose of testing the various product features like design, ideas, features, functionality, performance, and output. This process of development of the working model is quite quick. I had taken help of rapid prototyping service of Iannone3D, which is a New Jersey-based Rapid Prototyping and 3D Printing Service Bureau. Thanks.

What causes rapid depolarization phase of a pacemaker cell?

Rapid depolarization happens after the membrane threshold has been reached and Na+ ions start to flow into the cell. As more Na+ ions flood in the cell becomes more and more positive. This causes the voltage gated Na+ channels to open creating a flood of Na+ ions and thus a rapid phase of depolarization. Shortly after this rapid phase K+ ions are released from the cell causing the cell to become more negative closing the Na+ channels and thus repolarizing the cell.
