The use of tissue water as a concentration standard in proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H-MRS) of the brain requires that the water proton signal be adjusted for relaxation and partial volume effects. While single voxel (1)H-MRS studies have often included measurements of water proton T(1), T(2), and density based on additional (1)H-MRS(More)
During gap freezing, vials are placed on a metal tray, which is separated from the shelf surface with a small air gap that eliminates significant conductive heat transfer from the shelf to the bottom of the vial. The purpose of this freezing approach is to reduce the lyophilization cycle time of various amorphous formulations by nearly isothermal freezing.(More)
Errors in intravenous (IV) drug therapies can cause human harm and even death. There are limited label-free methods that can sensitively monitor the identity and quantity of the drug being administered. Normal Raman spectroscopy (NRS) provides a modestly sensitive, label-free, and completely noninvasive means of IV drug sensing. In the case that the analyte(More)
Gap freezing (GF) is a new concept that was developed to reduce the primary drying time using an alternative freezing process. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the gap-tray heat transfer coefficient, Kgtr , and to investigate the effect of gap lyophilization on cycle reduction of a mannitol-trehalose-NaCl (MTN) formulation. The values of(More)
2 The following were major contributors to the technical content presented in this report. We thank them for their leadership and expertise in helping make this report possible. The eastern spruce budworm (SBW) is the most damaging insect in Maine's forest. Returning on a natural 30-60 year cycle, the next outbreak is now at the state's doorstep. The last(More)
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of real refractive indices, using different itraconazole suspensions, on the associated particle size distributions. Instrumental particle size measurement remains the practical option for determining the particle size distribution of a suspension. In this study, the suspension particle size distribution was(More)
