We have developed and evaluated a high-frequency, real-time pulsed Doppler and physiological signal acquisition and analysis system specifically for use in mice. The system was designed to provide sampling rates up to 125 kilosamples/s (ksps) with software controlled data acquisition and analysis in real-time. Complex fast Fourier transforms are performed(More)
This noninvasive method for collection and analysis of a wide range of aldehydes and ketones in human breath may enable assessment of lipid peroxidation and metabolic status in vivo. Breath samples are drawn through silica cartridges impregnated with 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazine, which traps carbonyls as their hydrazone derivatives. The hydrazone derivatives(More)
Solid-phase extraction permits the parallel processing of samples in large numbers. We have applied this technique to the isolation of retinol isotopomers from plasma of humans participating in a study of vitamin A stable isotope dilution. The isotopomers were analyzed by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry. The extraction involves the separation of(More)
The study objectives were to assess the ability of intratracheal injection methods to discriminate between nine ®bre types in respect of pulmonary biopersistence, and to provide approximate estimates of relative biopersistence and durability for a study of general relationships with biological and toxicological responses. The test ®bres included six samples(More)
