Authors: Wang Y, Cao Y Abstract The leukocyte nucleus quick segmentation is one of the key techniques in leukocyte real-time online scanning of human blood smear. We propose a quick leukocyte nucleus segmentation method based on the component difference in RGB color space. By analyzing the captured microscopic images of the peripheral blood smears from the autoscanning microscope, it is found that the difference values between B component and G component (B - G values) in the regions of the leukocyte nuclei and the platelets are much bigger than those in the other regions, even in the regions including the stains. ...

Publication date: 15 November 2019Source: Materials Science in Semiconductor Processing, Volume 103Author(s): Shweta Sharma, Ashok Kumar, Vinay Gupta, Monika TomarAbstractThe present work reports the growth of (100) preferred oriented K0.35Na0.65NbO3 (KNN) thin film on Platinized Silicon substrates via pulsed laser deposition (PLD) technique. The structure of KNN thin films was examined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) technique and Raman spectroscopy while their surface morphology was analyzed by Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM). For interrogation of electrical properties, a metal-ferroelectric KNN- metal (MF...

We reported a simple method to fabricate SERS active substrate composed of Ag NPs where ZnO Nrds was chosen as the probe molecule. Ag NPs and ZnO Nrds were synthesized separately by polyol and hydrothermal method, respectively. Subsequently, we have deposited a roughened surface made of Ag NPs on glass by spin coating. Morphology, phase composition and optical properties of Ag NPs and ZnO Nrds are characterized by Transition Electron Microscopy (TEM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), X-Ray Diffraction XRD, Raman and Uv–vis Spectroscopy. An amplification of the SERS intensity by an order more than 4.5 times was obs...

Publication date: Available online 16 July 2019Source: Food ChemistryAuthor(s): Minsu Oh, Imkyung Oh, Sungmin Jeong, Suyong LeeAbstractTartary buckwheat grains were subjected to hydrothermal treatments (steaming/boiling/autoclaving) whose effects on rutin enrichment in the buckwheat flour by rutin migration from the bran fraction were investigated in terms of optical, rheological, thermal, and microstructural properties. The highest amount of rutin was observed in the bran out of the native milling fractions (hull, bran, and flour). The hydrothermal treatments however increased the level of rutin in the flour, even showing...

Authors: Tran K, Wu J Abstract A 2-year-old male pediatric patient experienced a partial occlusion of the internal carotid and subsequent asphyxiation resulting in hypoxic brain injury that was later misdiagnosed as primary attention deficient hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Imaging analyses using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), positron emission tomography (PET), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) quantitative volumetrics (QV) were used nine years following the incident to identify whether his development of ADHD is of a primary heritability or secondary hypoxic brain injury sequelae. The patient's DTI analysis g...

Publication date: Available online 16 July 2019Source: Reactive and Functional PolymersAuthor(s): Reddicherla Umapathi, Krishan Kumar, Pannuru Venkatesu, Nirmala DeenadayaluAbstractThermoresponsive polymers (TRPs) are known to exhibit changes in conformational states, with a change in the solution temperature. Obviously, temperature is the key factor that responds to the conformational transition behavior of TRPs. Among various TRPs, poly (N-vinylcaprolactam) (PVCL) is a suitable amphiphilic polymer for the study of conformational changes due to its compatible behavior with various additives. In the current study, the effe...

Jiménez Riobóo, Sébastien Hupont, Isabelle Royaud, Marc PonçotAbstractThe elaboration of new hybrid polymer/metal composite materials depends on the development of innovative polymer matrices with improved mechanical properties and high effective adhesion behaviour with metal surfaces. This way, a new type of polyolefin was developed based on a peculiar crosslinking reaction. For this elaboration, an iPP...

This study demonstrates the synthesis of highly hydrophilic poly (vinylidene fluoride) composite membranes incorporated with Titania (TiO2) nanotubes (PVDF/TNT) and then its photocatalytic applications were explored for effective degradation of brilliant green (BG) dye. The membranes were fabricated through phase inversion method using Poly (vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF) as matrix, Titania nanotubes (TNT) with different concentrations (0-2 wt%) as filler and Poly (vinylpyrrolidone) as pore former. Successful fabrication of composite membranes (PVDF/TNT) was confirmed by using x-ray diffraction analysis, Fourier transfor...

In this study, new self-assembled hydrogels constructed by cyclodextrin polymer (P-CD)/ferrocene-modified poly acrylic acid (PAA-Fc) were designed and prepared via host-guest interactions. These obtained hydrogels were characterized by different methods such as Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermogravimetric (TG) and specific surface area tests. SEM images confirmed that the prepared hydrogels had a three-dimensional (3D) porous network structure with pore size ranging from several hundred nanometers to several tens of micrometers. The network ...

Conclusions: During MIS pedicle screw fixation, this study recommends that pedicle screws should not exceed 85% of the vertebral body length on the lateral view for L1, 80% for L2-L4, and 75% for L5; this will minimize the risk of anterior cortical breach yet maximize pedicle screw purchase for fixation stability.
