How electricians help in upgrading genetics laboratory

Genetics laboratories provide various types of Molecular Genetics and Cytogenetics diagnostic testing. Chromosome analysis and other DNA-based tests are also offered. The lab carries out carrier, predictive and diagnostic testing for single gene disorders and sends samples to external laboratories if needed. The laboratory provides the room for research and development. It has state-of-the-art genetic testing services for patients and the health care professionals.

Genetic testing services


The laboratory is staffed by highly trained professionals and lab personnel. In order to provide high-quality genetic testing services, it is important to provide secure power supply solutions. Upgrades are necessary to make sure that all the testing instruments are working well and get the support whenever needed. It also ensures that backup system is in place in case of electrical emergencies.

How electricians help in lab upgrades


A number of laboratory installations can be made for upgrading. Single phase and three phase UPS systems can be installed. These must be present in the R&D rooms. HVAC system must be installed as well. Power must be provided to all the sophisticated testing machines so that minimal interruptions occur when testing. Highly experienced electricians are required for the job. They should have experience in repairing equipment, perform the installation of complex machinery, motor control wiring and data cabling. They must provide all the electrical services the lab needs.

Over the years there has been a drastic improvement in genetic testing. Many genetic disorders can now be diagnosed that was not possible before. If you have a good quality genetic lab then you can rely on their testing services. Constant upgrading of the lab is necessary to make sure that every equipment and machinery are in good working conditions.

4 amazing scientific discoveries that have changed our lives

Many scientists have researched all their lives to make some amazing discoveries in science. There are many discoveries made that has affected our lives. It has improved our communication, health, food, transportation and technology. Here are four amazing discoveries worth mentioning.

Antibiotics and immunizations

British scientist Alexander Fleming discovered a naturally growing mold in one of his bacteria samples in the 1920s. He saw that the place around the ring-shaped mold didn’t have any bacteria. He discovered that it was due to something that was inside the mold. Penicillin was then produced by drug companies. It was used widely in treating bacterial infections. This discovery led to the finding of other antibiotics and immunizations.

Personal computers

The old computers were very expensive and huge. The computer that was used in World War II weighed 30 tons and cost half a million dollars. It occupied 2,000 square feet of space. The microprocessor was discovered in 1971 and after that personal computers were available to the general public.

Space flight

In 1969 NASA’s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to step on the moon. Later, more astronauts went there. It was one of the best scientific achievements made by men.

Internet

The idea was adopted in the 1960s of sharing information. British software consultant Tim Berners-Lee created HTML that resulted in the World Wide Web in 1991. Today, we cannot think our life without the internet.

These amazing discoveries are due to the talent and hard work of some amazing scientists who have devoted their entire life to giving something to the world. We will always remember their contribution to science.

5 worst genetic diseases that people may have

There are diseases that occur due to genes. Family health history is the predictor of such diseases. The genetic makeup that is passed on from grandparents and parents affects the children. There are some genetic diseases that are incurable. Here are some of the worst genetic diseases that can affect people.

Cystic Fibrosis

It is a fatal genetic disease that affects thousands of people in the U.S. It causes the body to produce sticky and thick mucus. This mucus clogs the lungs and infection occurs. The infection, in turn, affects the pancreas. The affected person has breathing difficulties. The digestive enzymes are also blocked that prevents absorption of food nutrients.

Tay-Sachs

This results in death at an early age. The affected person has a missing enzyme called Hex-A. It causes the destruction of the brain and nervous system. There is no treatment for this disease. Sponsored Links

Breast and Colon Cancer

The BRCA1 and BRCA2 inherited genes are responsible for breast or ovarian cancer. However, all breast cancers are not genetic. Colon cancer is also genetic.

Sickle Cell Disease

This gene protects people from malaria. If you get the gene from both parents, then the red blood cells ‘sickle’. They get stuck in capillaries and destroy organs and joints. So, the victims eventually die of organ failure.

Hemophilia

It is a bleeding disorder that happens due to the absence of genetic clotting factors. It can be inherited from single or both parents. You can manage it by replacing the missing factor.

All these diseases are fatal and needs immediate attention. These diseases are hard to treat and research is still going on.
