—Two major processing technologies of GaAs HBT and pHEMT have been released in production at Win Semiconductors corp. to address the strong demands of power amplifiers and switches for both handset and WLAN communications markets. Excellent performance with low processing cost and die shrinkage features is reported from the manufactured MMICs. With the(More)
Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC)-associated enteric illness is attributed to O157 and non-O157 serotypes; however, traditional culture-based methods underdetect non-O157 STEC. Labor and cost of consumables are major barriers to implementation of the CDC recommendation to test all stools for both O157 and non-O157 serotypes. We evaluated the(More)
In an attempt to develop a safer pertussis vaccine, we successfully purified 3 pertussis protective antigens-pertussis toxin, filamentous hemagglutinin, and a 69-kDa outer membrane protein (also named pertactin), from Bordetella pertussis strain ATCC 9340. The toxicity of pertussis toxin could be effectively reduced by the treatment with formaldehyde 0.07%(More)
Trimeresurus mucrosquamatus venom was separated into two principle fractions by Sephadex G-100 gel filtration. Fraction I (FI) contained the main part of lethal and hemorrhagic activities and minor part of proteolytic activity on casein. The lethal dose of FI determined by the i. v. injection was significantly smaller than that of the i. p. injection, while(More)

The plaque reduction test for assaying the potency of Japanese encephalitis vaccine was evaluated by comparing with the active mouse protection test. The relative potency of tested vaccine to the standard vaccine were 1.40 +/- 0.250 by the plaque reduction test with coefficient variation of 0.179 and 2.54 +/- 1.152 by the active mouse protection test with(More)
While inter-firm collaboration and integration remain critical for supply chain performance and information technology (IT) has been playing an increasingly important role in inter-firm cooperation, whether intra-firm IT skills can impact the inter-firm integration of IT has not been explored in the IS area.
