Twenty-nineFusarium species isolated from various sources in different districts of Taiwan were tested for their ability to produce fumonisins in corn cultures. OnlyFusarium moniliforme produced fumonisin B1 (FB1) and fumonisin B2 (FB2). The finding that the other 28Fusarium species produced neither FB1 nor FB2 is preliminary because only one strain per(More)
Corn-based human foodstuffs purchased in Taiwan were analyzed for fumonisin B1 (FB1) and fumonisin B2 (FB2) using high-performance liquid chromatography. Fifty-two (33.9%) and 32 (20.9%) of 153 samples were found to contain FB1 (73–2395 ng/g) and FB2 (120–715 ng/g), respectively. The highest frequency of detection and also the highest FB1 concentrations(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Acinetobacter baumannii isolates containing class 1 integrons belong to different clones, but only a few strains are successful at causing infection. This study was conducted to compare the characteristics among these clones with different epidemicity. METHODS Eighty eight bacteremic isolates of A. baumannii were collected in a(More)
An iterative position-weighted centre-of-gravity algorithm was developed and tested for positioning events in a silicon photomultiplier (SiPM)-based scintillation detector for positron emission tomography. The algorithm used a Gaussian-based weighting function centred at the current estimate of the event location. The algorithm was applied to the signals(More)
Cloud computing launches a new direction for manufacturers to innovate and collaborate across the value chain via cloud-based technologies. To explore the possibility of cloud manufacturing collaboration, this paper first reviews relevant literature about agile manufacturing and cloud computing, and then investigates main manufacturing scenarios to identify(More)
In this paper, a solar illumination system with three-stage battery charger and dimming control function is proposed. The system structure is divided into two parts. One is three-stage battery charger, which contains PV module, buck-boost converter, charger-discharger controller and lead-acid battery. The other is dimming control of LED module, which(More)
