Trash Your Agar Plates! Blood Stream Bacteria Are Now Quantified by in vivo Flow Cytometry

by Jakob Zimmermann

With an incidence of around 200 cases in 100,000 people per year and a mortality of up to 40%, bacterial blood stream infections pose a significant challenge to modern health‐care systems. Especially hospital‐acquired (nosocomial) infections with multidrug‐resistant strains such as methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) or Carbapenem‐resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae are an increasing burden to patients 1. However, bacteremia is not per se a pathological situation. . .

Insights in Chloroquine Action: Perspectives and Implications in Malaria and COVID‐19

by Pillat et al

Malaria is a threat to human mankind and kills about half a million people every year. On the other hand, COVID‐19 resulted in several hundred thousand deaths since December 2019 and remains without an efficient and safe treatment. The antimalarials chloroquine (CQ) and its analog, hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), have been tested for COVID‐19 treatment, and several conflicting evidence has been obtained. Therefore, the aim of this review was to summarize the evidence . . .

A Joint Action in Times of Pandemic: The German BioImaging Recommendations for Operating Imaging Core Facilities During the SARS‐Cov‐2 Emergency

by Dietzel et al

Operating shared resource laboratories (SRLs) in times of pandemic is a challenge for research institutions. In a multiuser, high‐turnover working space, the transmission of infectious agents is difficult to control. To address this challenge, imaging core facility managers being members of German BioImaging discussed how shared microscopes could be operated with minimal risk of spreading SARS‐CoV‐2 . . .
