Quotes

“The n95 masks are for around ` "400 to `500 each. The normal masks that are provided to the doctors can lower the risk of TB infection by about 95 per cent. The doctors should use the normal masks while in the vicinity of the hospital, which they generally don’t do, raising the chances of TB contraction,” said a senior doctor from the hospital."
"The coated beads and suture material containing the tobramycin and photo-poly[vinylpyrrolidone] mixture are typically allowed to dry for greater than one hour at ambient conditions, and then subjected to UV cure for three minutes. The objective in certain embodiments is to have a tobramycin drug load of approximately 1.0 to 1.5 mg per bead. In other implementations the objective is to have the tobramycin drug load of approximately 0.5 to 2.0 mg per bead; in other implementations the objective is to have the drug load of less than 1.5 mg per bead, while in other implementations the objective is to have the drug load of greater than 1.0 mg per bead."
