Near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) is one of the most promising techniques for large-scale meat quality evaluation. We investigated the potential of NIRS-based models to predict drip loss and shear force of pork samples. Near infrared reflectance spectra (1000-2500 nm), water-holding capacity, shear force, ultimate pH, and colour (L(∗), a(∗), b(∗)-value) of(More)
Platelets from 200 random Dutch blood donors were typed for the human platelet alloantigens HPA-1 to -5 recognized at present and for Naka. Naka is an epitope on glycoprotein IV, not expressed on the platelet of individuals with hereditary GP IV deficiency. Platelet immunofluorescence and monoclonal antibody-specific immobilization of platelet antigens(More)
This paper critically reviews the problem of over-fitting in multivariate calibration and the conventional validation-based approach to avoid it. It proposes a randomization test that enables one to assess the statistical significance of each component that enters the model. This alternative is compared with cross-validation and independent test set(More)
Predictions obtained from a multivariate calibration model are sensitive to variations in the spectra such as baseline shifts, multiplicative effects, etc. Many spectral pretreatment methods have been developed to reduce these distortions, and the best method is usually the one that minimizes the prediction error for an independent test set.

The human neutrophil-specific alloantigen NB1 was identified as a glycosyl-phosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored N-glycosylated protein of M(r) 56-62 kD under reducing conditions. Under non-reducing conditions its M(r) was 49-55 kD. This glycoprotein antigen was found to be expressed by only a subpopulation of normal donor neutrophils, and could not be(More)
Here we describe a new platelet-specific alloantigen that was identified in a case of neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia. This antigen has provisionally been called "Mo." By studying the Mo family, it was shown to be inherited in an autosomal dominant manner. Immunoprecipitation and Western blot analysis showed that the antigen resides on platelet(More)
The glycoprotein (GP) Ib/IX complex, a prominent platelet GP complex, is the primary receptor for vWF. Previously, we have established that an antigenic polymorphism of platelets, the HPA-2 or Ko alloantigen system, is located on the 45-kD amino-terminal globular domain of GPIb alpha. With the polymerase chain reaction, we have amplified two segments of the(More)
The net analyte signal vector has been defined by Lorber as the part of a mixture spectrum that is unique for the analyte of interest; i.e., it is orthogonal to the spectra of the interferences. It plays a key role in the development of multivariate analytical figures of merit. Applications have been reported that imply its utility for spectroscopic(More)
