Abstrmt. In this paper we propose an Artificial Immune System for fault detection in gas lift oil well. Our novel approach inspired by the Immune System allows the application of a pattern recognition model to perform fault detection. A significant feature of our approach is its ability to dynamically learning the fluid patterns of the 'self' and predicting(More)
In this work, hybrid melanin-coated bioactive glass-ceramic multifunctional scaffolds were developed and characterized in terms of mechanical strength, in vitro bioactivity in simulated body fluid (SBF) and ability to load ibuprofen. The coated scaffolds exhibited an accelerated bioactivity in comparison with the uncoated ones, being able of developing(More)
A collaborative study has been completed on a spectrofluorometric method for determining lasalocid sodium in finished poultry feeds. After a brief treatment of feed samples with pH 4.7 buffer, the drug is extracted with ethyl acetate. The ethyl acetate extract is further cleaned up by treatment with HCI and NaOH and quantitatively measured by(More)
A simple and rapid qualitative method is described for determining the presence of vitamin D2 (ergocalciferol) and/or vitamin D3 (cholecalciferol) in various preparations by reverse phase high pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC). When both D2 and D3 are present, this method effectively separates and identifies each vitamin D form by its respective(More)
