As a result of military activities, unexploded ordnance and discarded military munitions are present in underwater environments, which has resulted in the release of munitions constituents including the high explosives, 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT) and hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX), along with their primary degradation products, to the water column and adjacent sediments. The present study focused on the characterization of underwater exposure and concentrations of energetics such as TNT and RDX at the former Vieques Naval Training Range at Bahia Salina del Sur (BSS; Vieques, Puerto Rico, USA), a bay with documented high incidence of munitions. In situ passive sampling using Polar Organic Chemical Integrative Samplers (POCIS) was used for the detection and quantification of constituents in water at target locations approximately 15-30 cm from 15 individual potentially leaking munitions, and also at 15 unbiased locations approximately evenly spaced across the Bay.

In this study, a novel paper biosensor based on Fe3O4@SiO2-NH2 magnetic polymer microspheres and multi walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) for rapid detection of pseudorabies virus (PRV) was first developed. Fe3O4@SiO2-NH2 were functionalized with PRV antibody and doped in cellulose nitrate paper to fabricate the magnetic paper biosensor with good magnetic response and biocompatibility. Using MWCNTs to build conductive network of sensors, PRV antigen binds specifically to the immunomagnetic microspheres on the sensor, and the resulting immune complex changes the magnetic domain structure of the sensor and the structural gap of MWCNTs, causing the magnetic property and impedance change.

The present research aimed to study the total phenolics, total anthocyanins, total antioxidants, aroma profile, organic acids, and carbohydrate contents of 15 sumac genotypes selected from Kahramanmaras province of Turkey. Total phenols and anthocyanins were spectrophotometrically assessed. The DPPH method was used to determine the antioxidant capacity of the genotypes. Read More

Avian Leukosis Virus subgroup E (ALVE) integrations are endogenous retroviral elements found in the chicken genome. The presence of ALVE has been reported to have negative impacts on multiple traits, including egg production and body weight. The recent development of rapid, inexpensive and specific ALVE detection methods has facilitated their characterization in elite commercial egg production lines across multiple generations. Read More
