Using ellipsometry, anodized tantalum interference color, and Coomassie blue staining in conjunction with immunologic identification of proteins adsorbed at interfaces, we have previously found that fibrinogen is the main constituent deposited by plasma onto many man-made surfaces. However, the fibrinogen deposited from normal plasma onto glass and similar(More)
High molecular weight kininogen (HMWK) plays an important role in altering the association of plasma fibrinogen with surfaces. Plasma initially deposits fibrinogen onto most materials, but on hydrophilic surfaces within 10 min adsorbed plasma fibrinogen cannot be detected on the surface by anti-fibrinogen antisera. However, using HMWK-deficient plasma,(More)
We describe a protocol designed for computer-assisted transcribing a XVII century botanical specimen book, based on Handwritten Text Recognition (HTR) technology. Here we focus on the organization and coordination aspects of this protocol and outline related technical issues. Using the proposed protocol, full ground truth data has been produced for the(More)
On clot-promoting surfaces, intact normal blood or plasma deposits fibrinogen and then supplants it with high molecular weight kininogen (HMWK). On glass, plasma layers of less than about 25 micron thick, while still containing enough fibrinogen to coat the surrounding surfaces, lack sufficient HMWK per surface area to remove this fibrinogen deposit. Thus(More)
