  • Acylglycine Analysis by Ultra‐Performance Liquid Chromatography‐Tandem Mass Spectrometry (UPLC‐MS/MS) - Current Protocols - Quantitative analysis of urine acylglycines has shown to be a highly sensitive and specific method with proven clinical utility for the diagnosis of several inherited metabolic disorders including: medium chain acyl‐CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, multiple acyl‐CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, short chain acyl‐CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, 3‐methylcrotonyl‐CoA carboxylase deficiency, 2‐methylbutyryl‐CoA dehydrogenase deficiency, isovaleric acidemia, propionic academia, and isobutyryl‐CoA dehydrogenase deficiency
  • Transcriptome Analysis at the Single‐Cell Level Using SMART Technology - Current Protocols - RNA sequencing (RNA‐seq) is a powerful method for analyzing cell state, with minimal bias, and has broad applications within the biological sciences
  • Strand‐Specific Transcriptome Sequencing Using SMART Technology - Current Protocols - Next‐generation sequencing is empowering a deeper understanding of biology by enabling RNA expression analysis over the entire transcriptome with high sensitivity and a wide dynamic range
  • Preparation of Low‐Input and Ligation‐Free ChIP‐seq Libraries Using Template‐Switching Technology - Current Protocols - Chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) followed by high‐throughput sequencing (ChIP‐seq) has become the gold standard for mapping of transcription factors and histone modifications throughout the genome

  • annette - excellent oil

    this oil is helping my daughter's juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. She has less joint pains and her blood test is cleared up

  • Jeff B - Don't Trust AVAST

    I used the free version of AVAST for a while then paid for the upgraded version for a few years. Then they offered a new product called Grime Fighter and I think the name says it all. It will clean all the grime left behind by programs you have removed that always leave something behind, cookies that get into your system from various websites you visit and so on. Grime Fighter seemed to be doing all that it promised, it took hours to analyze and clean my computer until one day it stopped working. I called AVAST, I spent time submitting a ticket with a description of my problem and finally got someone on the phone that told me if I allowed them access to remotely access and take control of my computer they would see if they could find the problem. I allowed them to do it and was told that my computer had a lot of junk (GRIME) and many suspected virus files and for $179 they would have tech support take control of my computer and clean it all up and get my paid for GRIME FIGHTER working again. After I paid, I sat and watched my computer screen for about an hour or so and saw that something was happening and felt secure that all would be fixed and I would have a nice clean faster computer again. When they were done, I ran Grime Fighter again and it failed exactly as it had before. After looking into it again AVAST informed me that GRIME FIGHTER would not work on my computer. They also told me that I had mistakenly subscribed to Grime Fighter twice and after a few more phone calls and submitting another ticket offered a refund for the second subscription but not the first even though Grime Fighter will not work on my computer any longer. I also made several phone calls and submitted tickets for a refund for the $179 + tax $192 which they refused. So I paid for antivirus that didn't prevent viruses, I paid for Grime Fighter that stopped working, I paid for Tech Support with no results and all in all spent well over $200 for nothing but headaches. If that sounds like fun to you, sign up and enjoy the ride. If not, find another service that has a better reputation and be sure to read the fine print before signing or paying.

  • Andrew - Axgio bluetooth earbud doesn't work

    My Axgio bluetooth earbud came in the mail today and it won't turn on. It has been plugged in for hours but still will only show a red light (according to the instructions it indicates that it doesn't have power.) When I unplug it and hold the power button down it won't do anything. I can't even get it to power up to try syncing it with my phone. This is the third separate review today with this same issue. The earbud doesn't work, I'm definitely sending it back.

  • mamma - awkward too far for my baby

    I rated this 3 stars since it snaps on to the stroller itself, leaving no option but to use it. I wrote uppababy about my dislikes hopefully they will redesign if enough people complain. Basically the tray replaces your bar, its sits very far out and when you recline the stroller the snack tray goes with it I wish it pivoted so i could recline the seat so that when baby is done napping she could resume her snack . so basically she has to really stretch to get the cheerios (11 months old 50 percentile height) also, instead of cruz connectors i wish they would have connectors that could make the tray closer or further, .Maybe when baby is older it will work better

  • billybobwood - great trainer

    it is a very good training video very comprehensive and easy to follow and understand I also like that the cd is broken down into sections so if I half to go back to get a refresher on something it's right there.
