The biodiversity values of the wetlands in the Kakadu Region of northern Australia have been recognised as being of national and international significance, as demonstrated through their listing by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands. Analyses of the wetland biodiversity have resulted in the production of species list for many taxa, and some population and(More)
The use of granulocyte-rich concentrates from leukaphresis purified by counterflow centrifugation--elutriation to obtain pure granulocytes for transfusion studies in cyclophosphamide-induced neutropenic animal models is reported. Our data for granulocyte-rich leukapheresis concentrates indicate that room temperature (20 degrees C) appears to be preferred to(More)
The contribution of cellular and humoral factors of normal blood to resistance to endotoxin was evaluated by selectively transfusing them into beagle dogs prior to IV challenge with a lethal (2.75 mg/kg) dose of Salmonella typhi endotoxin. Supplementation of normal host defenses with 250 ml of plasma containing a heatlabile (56 degrees C for one hour)(More)
Granulocytes from dogs obtained by continuous-flow centrifugation leukapheresis were purified by counterflow centrifugation-elutriation using a modified rotor and enlarged separation chamber. The separation chamber has a threefold increase in volume capacity, as compared to the commercial Beckman Instruments' separation chamber, and the quantity and purity(More)
Bone marrow cells from murine, canine, primate and human donors were fractionated by counterflow centrifugation-elutriation (CCE) using a continuous albumin gradient. Fractionation of 9 x 10(8) nucleated bone marrow cells (without prior removal of the erythrocytes) can be done in less than 1.5 h with 92% nucleated cell recovery, depending on donor species.(More)
This is the second of two special issues of the IEEE Annals of the History of Computing on computing at Bolt Beranek and Newman Inc. (BBN). The first issue (vol. 27, no. 2) included accounts of BBN’s founding. Articles in that issue addressed the factors that led to BBN’s early interest in computer technology, BBN’s history of attempted(More)
