Application

Human serum from platelet poor plasma (PPP) is useful for studies of the effects of platelet lysates on the growth of cells such as articular chondrocytes and human skin fibroblasts. It has also been used in platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) purification assays.

Pyrosequencing was compared to Sanger dideoxy sequencing to detect mutations in FKS1 responsible for reduced echinocandin susceptibility in Candida albicans. These methods were in complete agreement for 10 of 12 clinical isolates with elevated echinocandin MICs, supporting the potential feasibility...
