Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) is a novel, non-invasive technique for the measurement of gross body composition in small animals. In the present study the absolute accuracy of the Hologic QDR-1000W scanner was assessed by comparison with direct analysis in twelve rats with a range of body fat and bone mineral content (BMC) values. Fat masses(More)
BACKGROUND The conventional method of measuring total body water by the deuterium isotope dilution method uses gas isotope ratio mass spectrometry (IRMS), which is both expensive and time-consuming. We investigated an alternative method, using Fourier transform infrared spectrophotometry (FTIR), which uses less expensive instrumentation and requires little(More)
An understanding of customers' perceptions of value is fundamental to the competitive nature of all industries. Using the timeshare resort sector as a context for our studies, we explore the ways in which consumers, grouped according to their timeshare ownership stage, perceive value. Data were collected from three samples: non-owners of timeshare, recent(More)
Six healthy lean male adults, given a mixed meal containing 3190 kJ (16% from protein, 44% from carbohydrate and 40% from fat) were studied for the next 370 min using arteriovenous cannulation techniques across superficial and deep forearm tissues. The meal produced no significant change in forearm blood flow or skin temperature. The major differences(More)
This study aimed to simplify the spectrophotometric fluorescein method for measuring plasma bromide, improve its reproducibility, and automate it. After major modifications of the method, we obtained an essentially linear calibration curve for plasma concentrations of bromide between 0 and 5.0 mmol/L. The intraassay CV for measuring bromide in the(More)
