pH ISFET for Hydrogen Ion Activity
Non-Glass: Hydrogen Ion Activity instead of H+ Concentration ISFET Sensors Versus Glass Bulb pH Electrodes The method by which ISFET sensors and glass bulb pH electrodes achieve a response is significantly different. In buffers and most samples, the pH value based on both technologies will be the same. However, differences due to method may occur in applications like milk and cheese. As these are reproducible readings, the bias can be set in the pH meters to come to the same readings as the glass electrodes. The reason for different outcomes is primarily the following. Glass bulb electrodes use a permeable glass membrane involving an ion exchange process. The pH value measured by glass electrodes is based on the hydrogen ion (H+) concentration. Instead, ISFET sensors use an instantaneous surface reaction. The pH value measured by ISFET electrodes is based on the H+ activity as described below. What Is pH? The pH is a widely used way of expressing the acidity or alkalinity of aqueous solutions. In essence it is a means of indicating

Gene-targeted Oncolytic Adenovirus Plays A Role in Cancer Treatment
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common cancers in the world and the third leading cause of cancer deaths. Even though significant progress has been made in standard therapies (such as surgical resection, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy), the results are still disappointing. Therefore, it is necessary to find a new treatment method. There is a brand new field in the field of cancer targeted therapy. Gene-targeted oncolytic virus therapy (GTOVT) is considered to be a promising treatment for HCC. Oncolytic viruses can infect and kill cancer cells without harming normal cells. The anticancer efficacy of oncolytic adenovirus mainly depends on the host`s immune response. As for pathogens, adenovirus triggers a powerful host immune response after infection. This immune response is considered a "double-edged sword" because the oncolytic adenovirus stimulates both antiviral and antitumor immune responses. On the one hand, the host`s antiviral immune response

The Structure, Function and Clinical Significance of hERG Channel
The human body voltage-induced K + channel hERG plays a basic role in the repolarization of cardiac action potentials and can effectively control the QT interval of the ECG. The recent open-channel cryo-EM structure of hERG should greatly promote the understanding of the molecular basis of hERG channel diseases and drug-induced LQTS. This cardiac function of hERG is the characteristic of its unique gating characteristics: like other voltage-sensitive K + channels, hERG opens due to the voltage-dependent response of its voltage sensor domain after membrane depolarization; however, the channel is almost immediately deactivated, restricting K+ passage until the AP repolarization phase begins. In addition to rapid onset and recovery from inactivation, hERG will also be inactivated very slowly. Therefore, even if the membrane potential returns to the resting potential, an outward K + current will flow. This strongly supports the effective repolarization of cardiac AP. At

Custom peristaltic pumps for use in the chemical industry
Pumps are among the most important and widespread machines built and used by people all around the world. Pumps are among the most important and widespread machines built and used by people all around the world. They are used to transport liquids, gases or compounds or to increase pressure and overcome height differences and physical distances. Peristaltic tube pumps are positive displacement pumps and at Spetec, they are made up of a roller head driven directly by a wear-resistant stepper motor and an arrangement for securing the tubing used. This type of pump operates on the principle of constantly compressing and releasing a tubing. The tubing is pressed into holders around a rotating roller head using pressure arms. The liquid is thus conveyed along the occlusion point of the tubing by an alternating surface of the roller head caused by the rollers and their movement. The first tube pumps were initially used to pump blood in the 1960s. They soon found their way into industrial applications as self-priming pumps of this kind are very easy to use and are also suitable

Indigo500 series dual-probe support What are the benefits of using two probes measuring two different parameters?
Indigo500 series dual-probe support
What are the benefits of using two probes measuring two different parameters? Dual-probe support refers to the ability of a single transmitter or monitoring device to interface with two independent measurement devices, and then display, record, and transmit their data. It allows multiple parameters, or redundant parameters to be more easily monitored in the same space, or in different locations. What are the benefits of using two probes measuring two different parameters? Often an environment or process requires monitoring in multiple locations, and for a number of different parameters. It is common to be monitoring both the inlet and exhaust conditions of a single process to ensure product quality and energy efficiency. When the mounting space is limited, one transmitter with two probes is a useful and practical choice, for example, oil processing facilities with multiple oil dehydrators, or bread-proofing (multiple ovens) where one transmitter could monitor two separate ovens. The life science industry often monitors multiple parameters in

The role of artificial intelligence in cancer treatment
The role of artificial intelligence in cancer treatment
With continuous enhancement of deep learning technology, artificial intelligence (AI) is constantly expanding its boundaries. In the medical field, the application of AI is often manifested in assisting diagnosis of early tumors, or helping complete the electronic medical record. But in addition to that, AI can also play a significant role in drug discovery, which traditionally relied heavily on random discovery in the past. The combination of AI and experimental verification (hybrid-method) can accelerate the development of a new generation of targeted therapy drugs, and can also provide more alternative treatment options for cancer patients. The purpose of patients using drugs is to change the conformation of disease-causing proteins so that they can be degraded and eliminated. To obtain the conformational information of proteins, the traditional method is through experiments. However, the limitations of this method are obvious. On the one hand, it is difficult to
