The researchers developed a rapid dehydration technique for cranberries using microwaves and osmotic dehydration, as well as microwave-vacuum technology, as the primary and secondary drying steps, respectively.
Gold's patented zero-order release technology uses direct compression, three to five excipients plus the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), and a much simpler coating - so that the tablet behaves similarly to an osmotic release tablet.
The experiment was carried out on different cultivars of alfalfa by creating drought stress at five levels with osmotic pressures of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8 bars (Michelle Kaufmann method) and by using PEG (Polyethylene Glycol 6000).
Certain amino acids such a proline glutamate and betaine are known to protect cells against salt-induced osmotic stress and dehydration (Yancey et al.
More information and knowledge are still required to select treatments that can be used to stimulate the formation of elicitor compounds and create better combinations between specific elicitors and pre-treatments in order to improve osmotic stress tolerance.
In a previous study, hemolysis generated by the osmotic shock method led to elevated measured plasma ammonia concentration, whereas hemolysis generated by the shearing method had little to no effect on plasma ammonia measurement.
Forward osmosis or 'manipulated osmosis' or just 'osmosis' are terms used to describe a natural phenomenon, whereby a solvent flows from a region of lower osmotic pressure across a selectively permeable membrane to an area of higher osmotic pressure.
Investigating Osmotic Rates" is a hands-on, inquiry-based investigation that allows students to visually explore many of the aspects that affect osmosis and diffusion, with particular focus on osmotic rates.
By determining the maximum level of osmotic stress that kudzu is able to withstand, the range of field areas to which kudzu could be adapted could then be determined.
