Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are ubiquitous environmental pollutants, which can cause cancer in humans. The maximum tolerable limit of benzo[a]pyrene (B[a]P) in drinking water was set to 10 ng/L by the European Commission (Council Directive 98/83/EC), because of its highly carcinogenic and mutagenic effect on humans. In the present investigation,(More)
We present a rapid and effective adsorption-elution method based on monolithic affinity filtration (MAF) for the concentration and purification of waterborne viruses. The MAF column consists of a hydrolyzed macroporous epoxy-based polymer. High recoveries were achieved by columns for the bacterial virus (bacteriophage) MS2 110 (±19)%, as model organism, as(More)
SQLite databases have tremendous forensic potential. In addition to active data, expired data remain in the database file, if the option secure delete is not applied. Tests of available forensic tools show, that the indexes were not considered, although they may complete the recovery of the table structures. Algorithms for their recovery and combination(More)
Der " Master Online Digitale Forensik " i st ein berufsbegleitendes Studi-enangebot der Hochschule Albstadt-Sigmaringen, welches das zunehmend relevante Gebiet der IT-Forensik adressiert. Dieser Beitrag beschreibt die Entstehungsgeschich-te und das Konzept dieses Studiengangs, der in Kooperation mit zwei Universitäten betrieben wird. Außerdem werden die(More)
In the School of Information Technology and Engineering a microcomputer incorporating a real-time operating system has been designed to be used in various laboratory projects. The hardware is composed mainly of standard components like MC68332 processor and memory modules. The memory controller and a multiport unit have been designed using VHDL and are(More)
The hybridoma screening is a key step for the successful generation of high-affinity analyte-specific monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), particularly if the target of the antibody is a low-molecular weight analyte. This work presents an advanced screening method that makes use of antibody microarrays generated by contact printing of the hybridoma cell(More)
Game balancing is a recurring problem that currently requires a lot of manual work, usually following a game designer's intuition or rules-of-thumb. To what extent can or should the balancing process be automated? We establish a process model that integrates both manual and automated balancing approaches. Artificial agents are employed to automatically(More)
Biogeochemical interfaces in soil are dynamic in the spatial and temporal domain and require advanced visualisation and quantification tools to link in vitro experiments with natural systems. This study presents the development, characterization and application of functional nanoparticles coated with monoclonal antibodies to visualise the distribution of(More)
