In this paper, we propose a software testing environment, called D-Cloud, using cloud computing technology and virtual machines with fault injection facility. Nevertheless, the importance of high dependability in a software system has recently increased, and exhaustive testing of software systems is becoming expensive and time-consuming, and, in many cases,(More)
Various information systems are widely used in information society era, and the demand for highly dependable system is increasing year after year. However, software testing for such a system becomes more difficult due to the enlargement and the complexity of the system. In particular, it is too difficult to test parallel and distributed systems sufficiently(More)
A micromachined flow cell (overall size; 25 x 25 x 1 mm3) was designed for the fast determination of hydrogen peroxide, based on a luminol-H2O2 chemiluminescence reaction catalyzed by immobilized peroxidase (POD). The flow cell consisted of a sandwich of anisotropically etched silicon and glass chips and contained a spiral channel (20 turns, 50 cm long, 150(More)
The common marmoset, a New World monkey, requires a large amount of vitamin D3 to maintain its normal growth. This monkey is reported to have an end-organ resistance to 1α,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (1α, 25(OH)2D3). In this study, the bone morphology of marmosets fed a high vitamin D3 diet (intake of vitamin D3, 110 IU/day/100 g of body weight) was compared by(More)
Coupling of in vivo microdialysis with capillary electrophoresis/mass spectrometry (MD-CE/MS) was demonstrated. A microdialysis probe was inserted in the striatum of a rat brain and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the brain was detected by CE/MS without any chemical treatment of the sample. MD-CE/MS is expected to be a useful technique for analyzing brain(More)
We have developed a sonic spray ionization method, in which a methanol and water solution is sprayed from a fused-silica capillary with gas flow coaxial to the capillary. Ions as well as charged droplets are produced under atmospheric pressure, and their intensities depend on the gas flow rate (gas velocity). Positive ions produced from dilute solutions of(More)
We have improved the sonic spray interface to enable the analysis of multiply charged ions of protein from a solution at a flow rate of 1 mL/min using a conventional liquid chromatograph/mass spectrometer. In this interface, we added a multihole plate in front of the sampling orifice of a mass spectrometer. This plate does not have a hole coaxial to the(More)
In the ovarian cycle of common marmosets, serum progesterone began to increase at two to three days after estradiol-17β or LH surge, attained a peak of 25–70 ng/ml and then declined to a level of under 2 ng/ml before the ensuing rise in estradiol-17β and LH. Serum estradiol-17β increased to 700–5,500 pg/ml during the luteal phase, synchronizing with(More)
A homologous double-antibody radioimmunoassay developed for humans was used to measure serum prolactin, progesterone, and estradiol in common marmosets. In the ovarian cycle of common marmosets, serum progesterone began to increase after an estradiol surge, attained a peak level, and then declined before the ensuing pre-ovulatory rise in estradiol. During(More)
The serum levels of chorionic gonadotropin (LH/CG), progesterone, and estradiol-17β were measured during pregnancy in the common marmoset. The gestation period in five females was 144±1.5 (141–145) days. The LH/CG level increased from the early stage of pregnancy, reached a maximum of 10–17 ng/ml at 50 to 70 days and decreased to under 40 pg/ml at about 100(More)
