English term or phrase: Mute test specimen
Hola! Estoy traduciendo las instrucciones de uso de una prueba para detectar el VIH y tengo la siguiente oración:

A Mute test specimen is placed in the corresponding HIV-1 infected and uninfected cell wells.

Alguien sabe a qué se refiere "Mute test specimen"?

Muchas gracias!

Mute test


Explanation:
a mi entender el Mute es un organizador de tests, es lo que aparece en internet: "can organize the hierarchy of test suites and compose complex test cases from test primitives".
Espero que te sirva de ayuda, suerte.

ensayo a doble ciego


Explanation:
me parece que se trata de esto!
.."La ejecución de un experimento del tipo doble ciego es una forma de disminuir la influencia de los prejuicios o de las pistas físicas no intencionales sobre los resultados"...

Asker: En otra parte del mismo texto me aparece "blind test" para la cual usé esta expresión, así que tendría que buscar otra. ¡Gracias por tu respuesta!

Reference: FLUOROGNOST HIV-1 IFA

Reference information:
http://www.fluorognost.com/REFERENCES/PACKAGE INSERT 9-2.pdf
A qualitative Immunofluorescence Assay for the Detection of Antibodies to
Human Immunodeficiency Virus Type 1 (HIV-1) in Human Serum and Plasma

CAUTION: Remember to identify each IFA slide by current date and
specimen codes before applying test specimen dilutions. The frosted end
of the slide may be written on with a pencil or a waterproof laboratory
marker pen.
Step 11: Each IFA slide contains two parallel rows of cell wells. The HIV- I
infected cell wells (1i-5i) are surrounded by a RED Teflon coating and the
uninfected control cell wells (1-5) are surrounded by a BLUE Teflon coating. A
Mute test specimen is placed in the corresponding HIV-1 infected and uninfected
cell wells.
Step 12: Place 15 microliters of the diluted Positive Serum Control in the cell well
labelled "1i" (infected cells in RED colored upper row of the IFA slide). Place 15
microliters in the cell well labeled "I" (uninfected cells in BLUE colored lower row
of the IFA slide).

IFA
􀂄 El Fluorognost HIV-1 IFA usa material
humano de Células T infectadas que
expresan antígenos de VIH-1 (tipo IIIB). Las
células se fijan a la superficie de una
laminilla de vidrio, se utilizan células no
infectadas como control. Cuando los
anticuerpos del VIH están presentes en
suero o plasma se unen a las células
infectadas pero no a las células no
infectadas.

The Fluorognost HIV-1 IFA uses infected, immortalized human T-cells
that express antigens of HIV-1 (type IIIB). The cells are fixed in
wells on the surface of a glass slide. Separate wells of fixed,
uninfected T-cells are provided as controls for reaction with the
test sample. When antibodies to HIV-1 are present in a serum or
plasma specimen, they will bind to the infected cells but should
not bind to the control, uninfected cells. Bound antibodies are
detected with anti-human immunoglobulin conjugated to fluorescein
isothiocyanate. The conjugate becomes fixed to the bound human
antibodies and emits light by fluorescence when exposed to UV
light. The interpretation of the test result is based on a
microscopic, visual evaluation of the degree and pattern of
fluorescence of the infected cells compared with the uninfected
cells. It requires approximately 1.5 hours to test one IFA slide
containing five test wells.
