Citizens Medical Center Lab Shows Off New Robotic Lab Equipment

Citizens Medical Center showcased new robotic laboratory equipment that is expected to cut down on testing time significantly. The robotic equipment, titled the Abbott project, cost $1.5 million and took 18-months to plan and transition to it as it came online in late July. It was showcased at a Tuesday hospital board meeting. The equipment, which includes a robotic track for samples along with the ability to store and test them, minimizes the potential for samples to be corrupted, Citizens Lab Director Rene Ramirez said. It also has two centrifuges, compared to the single one in the previous system, which caused delays in the lab, Ramirez said. Additionally, the system allows lab workers to see where exactly a sample is in the testing process rather than waiting to see it complete. “When

Using AI to Find New Antibiotics Still a Work in Progress

Each year, more than 2.8 million people in the United States develop bacterial infections that don’t respond to treatment and sometimes turn life-threatening [1]. Their infections are antibiotic-resistant, meaning the bacteria have changed in ways that allow them to withstand our current widely used arsenal of antibiotics. It’s a serious and growing health-care problem here and around the world. To fight back, doctors desperately need new antibiotics, including novel classes of drugs that bacteria haven’t seen and developed ways to resist. Developing new antibiotics, however, involves much time, research, and expense. It’s also fraught with false leads. That’s why some researchers have turned to harnessing the predictive power of artificial intelligence (AI) in hopes of selecting the most

Research Shows That Robotic Surgery Is Safer and Improves Patient Recovery Time by 20%

A new study has found that robotic surgery is less dangerous and has a faster recovery period for patients Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, enables surgeons to conduct a variety of complicated operations with more precision, flexibility, and control than traditional approaches allow. Robotic surgery is often associated with minimally invasive surgery, which involves procedures carried out through small incisions. It’s also occasionally employed in certain traditional open surgical procedures. The most common clinical robotic surgical system consists of a camera arm and mechanical arms with surgical tools attached. While sitting at a computer station beside the operating table, the surgeon controls the arms. The console provides the surgeon with a magnified,

How to Spot and Treat Eye Cancer

Dr. Ziad Bashshur, visiting Ophthalmologist specialising in Medical and Surgical Retina at Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai shares how to spot and treat eye cancer. Eye cancers vary and can range from ocular surface tumours that can be malignant or benign to intraocular tumours that develop inside the eye. These abnormal growths can arise from the eye (primary) or spread to the eye from cancers elsewhere in the body. This process is known as metastatic. Eye cancer is not age-related, but different types of cancer are likely to occur at a higher or lower frequency depending on age. In children, the most common eye cancer is called retinoblastoma, an eye cancer that begins in the retina, and it can be caused by an inherited gene mutation that occurs in 1 out of 15,000 live births. In adults,
