Methods: Antioxidant capacities, total phenolic and ascorbic acid contents of 40 fruit available in New Zealand were quantified using ABTS and ORAC, Folin-Ciocalteu and titration assays respectively. The fruits contained ...
MICREDOX® - advantages derived from an immobilised biocomponet for a rapid BOD biosensor
MICREDOX® is a novel rapid microbial technique for monitoring environmental contaminants, including biological oxygen demand (BOD). The advantages of an immobilised biocomponent are explored for the MICREDOX® process in ...
Rapid toxicity assessment: a new method based on quantifying mediated microbial respiration at a microelectrode
Lincoln Technology has developed a rapid biosensor-based assay called MICREDOX®. While MICREDOX® was originally developed for BOD monitoring, here we report how this rapid assay has been extended to ascertain the impact ...
