* since year 2007....
* gone thru uni life tat full of laboratory praticals...
* at 1st it was quite irritating...
* but somehow nw i started to feel tat sometimes lab pratical is fun...

## immunology lab ##
crazy wif little cute chubby rat for few weeks...
u can hear someone screaming out of a sudden... why?
- their rats were ran away...
- got bitten by the rat....
- the rats was pee-ed or defecated somewhere...or on their lab coat.. =.=''

blood drawing from white rat --> centrifugation to get the blood serum --> titer of antibodies with hemaglutination, agglutination and ELISA test

i knw it is freaking cruel and im reli phobia wif the blood and the rat... but forced to do it oso.... *sobsob*

coz they will misunderstand & thought i got diabetes and might asked me for further test... =.=''

times passed... the next day 8am morning....i went to uni clinic wif somethgs weighning on my mind...
feeling excited the time i stepped into the room but i turned into nervous when seeing all the instruments and the leng lui doctor...
chit-chatting wif coursemates while waiting for the blood drawing...
they said i looks calm n cool n steady... lolx.. they r absolutely WRONG... *underneath my cool exterior, im actually vry frighthened*

arghhh...3ml...they hav to draw 3ml of my blood....
i showed her (the doc) a woeful face..and i scream 'arr arr' before she prick the syringe to my hand...
i knw im timid lolx.. she laugh at me while asked me keep calm.. T_T

1st..v gotta weight ourselves and measure our height...
*sad* hw come..... my height oni 160cm... ??? IMPOSSIBLE....
my height was actually 163cm, i measured it 1 year ago.... *smirking*
but my weight satisfied me^^ *giggling*


what comes next??
bundles of blood tests... wif the instrument shown in the picture below...



the lab instrument which is a quick and easy-to-use desktop-analyzer for doc or lab assitant's use -The Reflotron Plus system. ...

It is a single test system which allows the quantitative determination of 17 clinical chemistry parameters from whole blood, plasma or serum.




u able to determine ur
- blood glucose level..
- total hemoglobin
- total cholesterol content
- level of HDL -cholesterol
- level of triacylglycerides...
- level of billirubin
in the blood....... wif tis instrument......


*happy* ... all the values of glucose level, cholesterol level and so on of my blood were within the normal range... !! im healthy ? yes...i guess... =p
