A supercontinuum laser based double integrating sphere setup in combination with an unscattered transmittance measurement setup was developed and carefully validated for optical characterization of turbid samples in the 500-2250 nm wavelength range. A set of 57 liquid optical phantoms, covering a wide range of absorption and scattering properties, were(More)
A method for visualizing the sugar content in the flesh of melons was developed. This method was based on the sugar absorption band in the near-infrared (NIR) region to avoid bias caused by the color information of a sample. NIR spectroscopic analysis revealed that each of the two second-derivative absorbances at 874 and 902 nm had a high correlation with(More)
The current study attempted to provide a convenient, non-invasive and time-saving method to estimate the freshness of intact horse mackerel (Trachurus japonicus) fish in a frozen state using autofluorescence spectroscopy in tandem with multivariate analysis of fluorescence excitation-emission matrices (EEM). The extracted fluorescence data from different(More)
BACKGROUND Sensory analysis is an important standard for evaluating food products. However, as trained panelists and time are required for the process, the potential of using fluorescence fingerprint as a rapid instrumental method to approximate sensory characteristics was explored in this study. RESULTS Thirty-five out of 44 descriptive sensory(More)
A novel method of optically reducing the dimensionality of an excitation-emission matrix (EEM) by optimizing the excitation and emission band-pass filters was proposed and applied to the visualization of viable bacteria on pork. Filters were designed theoretically using an EEM data set for evaluating colony-forming units on pork samples assuming(More)
The performances of support vector machine (SVM) and linear discrimination analysis (LDA) for detecting pesticide on spinach leaf were investigated. Fluorescence images of spinach leaves without any treatment, treated with pure water and methamidophos solution were taken under 561 different wavelength conditions to acquire hyperspectral excitation-emission(More)
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of rice porridge on the texture and viscoelastic properties of bread during storage. Three types of bread, wheat flour bread, 15% rice flour bread, and 15% rice porridge bread, were prepared. After baking and storing the bread for 24 h, 48 h, and 72 h at room temperature, we measured the texture and(More)
Over the last decade, the poultry sector has sought to develop ways to monitor chicken embryonic development as to optimize the incubation conditions. One of the parameters of development which may change under different incubation conditions is the angiogenesis in the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM). To be able to quantify these changes in the angiogenesis(More)
Quantitative determination by fluorescence spectroscopy is possible because of the linear relationship between the intensity of emitted fluorescence and the fluorophore concentration. However, concentration quenching may cause the relationship to become nonlinear, and thus, the optimal dilution ratio has to be determined. In the case of fluorescence(More)
In this study, the potential of using fluorescence fingerprint, also known as fluorescence excitation-emission matrix, for estimating the scavenging capacity of peach extract on reactive oxygen species (ROS) was investigated. Samples from each of the five cultivars (Asama Hakuto, Hakuho, Kawanakajima Hakuto, Natsukko and Ougonto) were freeze-dried and(More)
