ON-SITE THERMAL DIAGNOSTICS OF HEATING AND DHW INSTALLATIONS

  The requirements for the inspection of heating systems have been introduced in the Energy Performance Act. Thermal diagnostics of the system is an evaluation of the technical conditions of the heating and hot water installations, due to their energy efficiency and reliability of obtaining the required internal temperature in the building and delivery of the right amount of domestic hot water at the proper temperature. Data obtained from the diagnostics are useful for proper energy-efficient

Mistakes in the ultrasound diagnostics of the abdominal cavity in pediatrics

The diagnostics of the abdominal cavity in children, especially in the neonatal-infantile period, requires knowledge in the field of anatomical and physiopathological differences as well as clinical symptomatology and pathology at every stage of the child’s development. Errors and mistakes in ultrasound diagnostics of the abdominal cavity in children result from many factors, including lack of experience in examining children and the knowledge concerning most frequent ailments and pathologies

INTRODUCTION The thermal diagnostics of heating systems and heat source is connected with the verification of compatibility of the required and actual power of the heat source and heating systems [1, 4]. Determining the required power is one of the tasks of thermal heat source diagnostics. The need to perform such diagnostics periodically is due to national regulations and standards and the directives of the European Parliament and the Council of Europe. It is not always easy to determine

Finally, indications and contraindications for ultrabiomicroscopic diagnostics were listed. Introduction of an ultrahigh frequency ultrasound probe allowed for the visualization of an post-iridial area of an anterior segment of an eyeball – an area whose diagnosis is impossible with other diagnostic methods. A wide spectrum of diagnostic indications, which covers both diseases

The potential of blood group genotyping for transfusion medicine practice

Molecular diagnostics is the fastest growing area of clinical laboratory medicine.  The ability to rapidly amplify genes of bacterial, viral, or human origin, and the development of DNA array platforms, are driving a technology revolution in the clinical laboratory.  A DNA-based testing approach is particularly applicable to blood bank and transfusion medicine for rapid, cost-effective antigen typing.  Experience with DNA-based methods during the past decade has shown that these

Red blood cell diluent composition is important for detection of some anti-E

Commercially prepared 0.8% reagent red blood cells (RBCs) eliminate the need to manually dilute 3 to 5% RBCs for use in gel cards. Ortho-Clinical Diagnostics investigated twelve anti-E samples detected in MTS Anti-IgG gel cards using Ortho 3% reagent RBCs manually diluted to 0.8% in MTS Diluent 2™ (MTS2) that were not detected with commercially prepared Ortho 0.8% reagent RBCs. In gel tests, using additional examples of E-positive RBCs, 22 of 26 antiE were reactive when the cells were

The human parechoviruses belong exclusively to the A species (Parechovirus A), which currently consists of 19 types, from HPeV-1 to HPeV-19 [99]. They are small (30 nm), non-enveloped, icosahedral-shaped viruses, whose genetic

However, a series of works proved the usefulness in the diagnostics of that pathology of transabdominal and endoscopic ultrasonography. In that method, the degree of adiposis was based on the comparison of echogenicity of the pancreas and the liver, renal parenchyma, spleen and/or retroperitoneal adipose. Recently, the evaluation was expanded by the evaluation of the degree of pancreatic adipose with the pancreas
