The kinetics of glucose transport and the transcription of all 20 members of the HXT hexose transporter gene family were studied in relation to the steady state in situ carbon metabolism of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CEN.PK113-7D grown in chemostat cultures. Cells were cultivated at a dilution rate of 0.10 h-1 under various nutrient-limited conditions(More)
MOTIVATION Metabolomics datasets are generally large and complex. Using principal component analysis (PCA), a simplified view of the variation in the data is obtained. The PCA model can be interpreted and the processes underlying the variation in the data can be analysed. In metabolomics, often a priori information is present about the data. Various forms(More)
To increase the power and the robustness of spectroscopic process analyzers, methods are needed that suppress the spectral variation that is not related to the property of interest in the process stream. An approach for the selection of a suitable method is presented. The approach uses the net analyte signal (NAS) to analyze the situation and to select(More)
The qualitative and quantitative aspects of capillary electrophoretic methods used to study drug-protein interactions, viz. the affinity capillary electrophoresis (ACE). Hummel-Dreyer (HD), frontal analysis (FA), vacancy peak (VP) and vacancy affinity capillary electrophoresis (VACE) methods have been investigated. In the ACE and the VACE methods the(More)
A new method to eliminate the background spectrum (EBS) during analyte elution in column liquid chromatography (LC) coupled to spectroscopic techniques is proposed. This method takes into account the shape and also intensity differences of the background eluent spectrum. This allows the EBS method to make a better estimation of the background eluent(More)
Net analyte signal statistical quality control (NAS-SQC) is a new methodology to perform multivariate product quality monitoring based on the net analyte signal approach. The main advantage of NAS-SQC is that the systematic variation in the product due to the analyte (or property) of interest is separated from the remaining systematic variation due to all(More)
Combinatorial chemistry and high-throughput experimentation (HTE) have revolutionized the pharmaceutical industry-but can chemists truly repeat this success in the fields of catalysis and materials science? We propose to bridge the traditional "discovery" and "optimization" stages in HTE by enabling parallel kinetic analysis of an array of chemical(More)
Determination of homogeneous mixing of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) is an important in-process control within the manufacturing of solid dosage forms. In this paper two new near-infrared (NIR) based methods were presented; a qualitative and a quantitative method. Both methods are based on the calculation of net analyte signal (NAS) models(More)
Fast and accurate monitoring of monomer concentration during copolymerization reactions is of much interest. It is known that near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) can be used to monitor polymerization reactions. Here, a free radical solution copolymerization reaction between methyl methacrylate and N,N-dimethylacrylamide is considered. NIR spectra were(More)
Preprocessing of near-infrared spectra to remove unwanted, i.e., non-related spectral variation and selection of informative wavelengths is considered to be a crucial step prior to the construction of a quantitative calibration model. The standard methodology when comparing various preprocessing techniques and selecting different wavelengths is to compare(More)
