The new rights think that there is a universal human tendency to live in families; however there are other universal tendencies too such as the desire for survival.Murdock, a functionalist, based his definition on a sample of 250 societies which ranged from hunting and gathering bands to small-scale farming societies to large-scale industrial societies.He found a variety of family forms within his sample however each contained a basic nucleus consisting of a husband and a wife with one or more children, either their own or adopted.Brothers and sisters, women and children live together; the children are members of their mothers group and not their fathers.The Lakker of Burma see there being no blood relationship between the mother and the...

I feel that there will never be an error free DNA profiling system because of all the human error and debates out how the testing is done and how much constitutes a true dna match and things of that nature.The FBI says that, of many test results, that they could never exclude with standard blood markers, nearly a third of those people are exonerated immediately upon DNA testing.Should the general public be required to give a DNA sample?I feel that incarcerated criminals should have samples of DNa taken and stored because our whole criminal justice system is built on keeping contact with people who have had contact with criminal justice and just like your mug shot and fingerprints are kept on file so should your DNA if you are a convicted...

The purpose of the lab was to test the effect that change in solute concentration of the environment have on red blood cells , The hypothesis tested was that osmosis should occur based on the solute concentration on the outside of the red blood cells.The findings provide explanation as to what happens to blood cells in surroundings of different osmotic pressures and the movement of water molecules during osmoregulation and abnormal function of homeostasis controls may cause conditions such as edema.Cells placed in 5% glucose and 0.9 NaCl also known as saline are isotonic which had no change to the cells because the solution has the same solute and water concentration as the plasma fluid therefore the movement of water is balanced due to ...

The aim of treatment for diabetes is for a person to achieve a blood glucose level to a normal standard.People with type 2 diabetes need to manage their diet (balanced diet with less sugar), exercise and require home blood glucose testing.People with type 1 diabetes need a diet control (balanced diet), daily physical activities- exercise, home blood glucose testing several times a day and insulin injections several times a day.A glucose value of 140mg/dI or higher repeated over two tests usually shows that someone has diabetes; but if the blood test shows that your glucose levels in your blood are not high enough for you to have diabetes (in a normal fasting range of 70mg/dI – 110mg/dI) an oral glucose tolerance test which is also called...

The latter tests are measured through the analysis of electrolytes and metabolites in the blood.Once the source of blood sample (arterial, venous, capillary) has been selected on the display screen of the analyzer, the sample is checked for clots.One other final blood constituent that is also analyzed in this analyzer is for carboxyhemoglobin.Blood is one of the most important fluids in the human body.Since blood is the medium through which the different organs and tissues in our body communicates, keeping a close eye on the constituents of a blood sample would provide a good indication of the functioning of the human body.

However the use of plasma is preferred in some centres as it separates quickly saving preanalytical time thus reducing the total testing period (TTP); secondly, 15–20% more plasma sample can be obtained from the same volume of blood than the serum sample and lastly, with plasma there are no coagulation-induced changes or interferences (3).In our study, serum and heparinized plasma yielded similar results with no significant changes in total blood calcium assay this confirms the views of Thorensen, S.I.,et al (15) who also reported similar observations; and this adds up to the observation of Ladenson, J., et al (13) in which clinically significant changes were observed in ionic calcium observations on use of heparinized plasma over serum ...

Unexpectedly, miR-222 presented itself with the lowest standard deviation between blood and urine.This problem is reflected in our case, where one of the most used normalisation gene proved to be unsuitable for urine and blood miRNA analysis.Within blood, we did not notice any significant alteration in their expression ( >0,05).Despite considering that miR-127, miR-221 and RNU-48 are unsuitable for urine and blood identification, we wanted to study their expressional behavior within samples with different stages of age and gender.At first, we choose to use RNU-48 as our endogenous control but its behaviour within blood and urine make us reconsider our decision.
