The rates at which wine consumes oxygen are important technological parameters for whose measurement there are not accepted procedures. In this work, volumes of 8 wines are contacted with controlled volumes of air in air-tight tubes containing oxygen-sensors and are further agitated at 25 °C until O2 consumption is complete. Three exposure levels of O2 were used: low (10 mg/L) and medium or high (18 or 32 mg/L plus the required amount to oxidize all wine SO2). In each oxygen level, 2-4 independent segments following pseudo-first order kinetics were identified, plus an initial segment at which wine consumed O2 very fast...

Recently, microwave resonance technology (MRT) sensor systems operating at four resonances instead of a single resonance frequency were established as a process analytical technology (PAT) tool for moisture monitoring. The additional resonance frequencies extend the technologies' possible application range in pharmaceutical production processes remarkably towards higher moisture contents. In the present study, a novel multi-resonance MRT sensor was installed in a bottom-tangential-spray fluidized bed granulator in order to provide a proof-of-concept of the recently introduced technology in industrial pilot-scale equipment...

Increasing amounts of impurities (especially As) in Cu ores have aggravated the problem of flue dust generation in recent years. As an example from a smelter processing As-rich Cu ores, we characterized a flue dust particularly rich in As (>50 wt%) to understand its mineralogy and pH-dependent leaching behavior, with special emphasis on binding, release and solubility controls of inorganic contaminants (As, Bi, Cd, Cu, Pb, Sb, Zn). Whereas arsenolite (As2O3) was the major host for As and Sb, other contaminants were bound in sulfides, arsenates, alloys and slag-like particles...

The ex vivo human skin wound model is a widely accepted model to study wound epithelialization. Due to a lack of animal models that fully replicate human conditions, the ex vivo model is a valuable tool to study mechanisms of wound re-epithelialization, as well as for pre-clinical testing of novel therapeutics. The current standard for assessment of wound healing in this model is histomorphometric analysis, which is labor intensive, time consuming, and requires multiple biological and technical replicates in addition to assessment of different time points...
