Phytoremediation shows potential for remediating mine tailing sites contaminated with heavy metals. Our aim was to isolate, characterize, and assess the potential of endophytic bacteria to enhance growth and metal accumulation by the hyperaccumulator Alnus firma. A bacterial strain isolated from roots of Pinus sylvestris had the capacity to remove heavy(More)
A combination of high resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) and gas chromatography has been used to improve sensitivity and selectivity in pharmacokinetic study of tibolone. The study was undertaken in 12 healthy volunteers after oral administration of 2.5mg tibolone tablet and plasma concentrations of two major metabolites, 3alpha-hydroxytibolone (3alphaOHT)(More)
This paper presents a design of two dimensional receiving coils to provide hundreds of milli-watt power via inductive link to in vivo robotic capsules, whose orientation are practically undetermined. The wireless power transmission system consists of a transmitter powered by class E power amplifier, and receiver with 2-dimensional antenna, rectifier, and(More)
This paper presents a PC-based thermal cycler with a local-host architecture, where a PC is employed as the host. The local system only executes the thermal cycling process and the PC is responsible for the management of PCR protocols with a convenient GUI. The presented local-host system greatly reduces the development time and the maintenance cost,(More)
Improving energy efficiency has been widely regarded as one of the most cost-effective ways to improve sustainability and mitigate climate change. This paper presents a sequential slack-based efficiency measure (SSBM) application to model total-factor energy efficiency with undesirable outputs. This approach simultaneously takes into account the sequential(More)
Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is an amplification method of genetic materials and is used in almost every process that includes genetic material treatment. Conventional PCR machines control the process with a computer that is connected with a wire, limiting the mobility and requiring an expensive, high technological installation skill. This paper utilizes(More)
