I just want to be clear: while I understand and have similar frustrations with turnaround times for #COVIDー19 testing, I'm afraid the angst is falling on the laboratories...and I do not feel that is fair or appropriate. (Small thread)
The clinical laboratory is full of living, breathing, intelligent human beings. The work takes skill and time. Often, labs are understaffed and there has been a shortage of trained clinical lab scientists FOR A WHILE. There are only so many tests a person can crank out in a day.
Even if a lab has all the staff they need, there's only so much testing that can be done when a) your instruments are full b) you cannot get the supplies you need to run these tests. Seems like many people think labs have unlimited access to very expensive instruments...nope.

So "open and transparent" that if you look up Rick Switzer on the WIV website, you won't find any mention of him.

This wouldn't the first time WIV removes information from its website.

Thinking about a low cost easy to manufacture home test kit for #Coronavirus. Outline: #Nasal_swab (Q-tip) w/ freeze dried reagents for isothermal #DNA amplification with #COVID19 primers. Colorimetric readout by #iOS or #Android #App w/ #geolocation & #HIPPA compliant reporting.
Read-out would be in minutes - timer in App - read by camera in your smart phone. No other machines. Links to telemedicine groups for positive results. Built in positive control - e.g. no color = improper test, green NEGATIVE, red POSITIVE.
I’ve done my best creating when faced by a challenge. Next gen sequencing when my son went to new born intensive care - #454 @iontorrent. Ultrasound on a chip @ButterflyNetInc when wanted to monitor my daughter’s kidneys.

#Brexit's just 'their chance'.

John Smith moved #LAB from being a "democratic socialist" party to being a "social democrat" party. Corbyn, Milne, McDonnell et al want their Leninist roots fully restored and, then, because they're the revolutionary type of 1/2
2/2 socialist, want to try to make #LAB the "vanguard party" Lenin dreamed of, introducing socialism to the whole world.

An outdated ideology that fires-up '70s student activists like...Corbyn, Milne & McDonnell.

Wolfie Smiths in suits.

#LAB #TakenOverByExtremists
Compare & contrast with the 1945 Attlee government. What's Corbyn ever achieved? So far SFA except pissing off (now)-ex-#Labour-supporters like me.

The #Tories are desperate & lying. #Labour (well, Milne & Corbyn) are desperate & lying. Both ends of #CONLABKIP are desperate & lying. Believe either and we'll get #Brexit or #Lexit.

Whatever happens longer-term at least lending the @LibDems votes is more likely to keep 1/2
2/2 us in the #EU. We can sort the longer-term once the #Tories are dead and #Labour is rescued from its current anti-#EU extremist cabal.

But, for now, Job #1 is to keep ouselves in. Otherwise forget the "long-term".

(I'm temporarily not #LAB after 40 years, BTW.)

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of #Curitiba, southern #Brazil!
This region is famous for being cold and cloudy (yes it can be cold in Brazil!).
It is also famous for its very endemic and beautiful #Araucaria pine trees. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network @500womensci /1
#Actions speak louder than words! I am thankful for my parents for being who they are. Both always showed love for Nature, different interests and #curiosity! So no wonder by observing them I grew up to be a very curious girl who really loved Nature. #voicesIWS @IWS_Network /2
During High School I became fascinated by the #mendelian #genetics classes and the work of #gregormendel! I also loved studying animals, ecosystems and climate so the obvious choice for me in University (@PUCPR_oficial ) was BIOLOGY!! @IWS_Network #womeninscience #voicesIWS /3

I was born & raised in #Medellin Colombia, an amazing & vibrant city in the middle of the mountains.

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Medellin is much more than that #eternalspring #innovation #Entrepreneurship #mountains #coffee #greatpeople

Went to a great school in #medellin & at 17 started #medicine not because I wanted to be a clinician but because I liked the #science & my family and #mentors told me #medicine was broader and could open more doors for me #VoicesIWS #Thread☝️@IWS_Network

It doesn’t seem to be as easy as it looks like 😋
My version 🤠
Its definitely worse than the last time 🍳
1. Its over cooked from the outside.
2. Runny from the inside.
Possibilities why it went wrong:
1. Very hot pan to start with?
2. No enough scrambling?
Positives:
It tastes good to me😋
Take those points in account & try again next week.
