A scheme for assessing a Trust's arrangements for minimising clinical risk for service users and staff. Under the scheme, a Trust pays "insurance" which might offset the costs of legal claims against the Trust.
Bone dust arises from splitting the vertebrae and contains CNST from cutting the spinal cord (Schmidt et al.
Regulations require slaughterhouses to implement measures to prevent any CNST (especially those considered SRM) from cross-contaminating other tissues at slaughter.
Therefore, in order to make the prevention of CNST contamination more practical, a method should be developed to avoid the CNST dissemination during splitting.
The first group was conducted to examine the effect of different washing times and methods after spinal cord removal on CNST decontamination.
The second group was conducted to compare the effect of spinal cord removal before or after splitting on interior carcasses for CNST decontamination.
Detection of CNST was performed on samples using a commercial ELISA-based test - the Ridascreen[TM] risk material 10/5 kit (R-biopharm, AG, Darmstadt, Germany), which detects glial fibrillary acidic protein as a marker.
ATI's most recent award for the Shipbuilding Center of Excellence's continued operations and associated projects, coupled with VIRGINIA-class project funding, are strong indicators of the Navy's sustained commitment to CNST," said SCRA CEO Bill Mahoney.
