Marginal secondary or tertiary chalk reservoirs with lower porosity and very low mobility are becoming increasingly important for a growing number of mature chalk fields. Significant volumes of hydrocarbons are often trapped in chalk with low reservoir quality representing an interesting economical potential, but uncertainty relates to estimation o...
The majority of new and existing cases of HCV infection in high-income countries occur among people who inject drugs (PWID). Ongoing high-risk behaviours can lead to HCV re-exposure, resulting in mixed HCV infection and reinfection.

Introduction: Haemolysis is the most common and undesirable occurrence in clinical laboratories and represents the main reason for specimen rejection. The aim of this study is to propose a mathematical equation to estimate and correct for the haemolysis interference in six common laboratory tests. Materials and methods: A toat of 100 fresh samples...
