  • Removal of Disperse Red 60 dye from aqueous solution using free and composite fungal biomass of Lentinus concinnus

    Lentinus concinnus biomass was immobilized to carboxyl derivative of cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), in the presence of FeCl3 (0.1 mol L−1) via ionic cross-linking. The beads containing immobilized fungal biomass were incubated at 30 °C for three days to permit growth of the fungus. The free and immobilized ...

  • New and dangerous mold

    Cryptococcus gattii was considered to be a mold found only in semi tropical and topical climates until it was found recently in the Pacific Northwest. It seems to have adapted to the cool, wet environment on Vancouver Island, Canada and spread from there to western Canada, Washington (state) and Oregon. It may have already spread to Idaho and California. Normally, Cryptococcus molds are capable ...

  • Choosing the best shakeout technology for your process

    In the modern foundry, there are many options when it comes to choosing the proper shakeout technology for your metal casting facility. Improper selection can lead to poor throughput, casting damage, and unnecessary down time, all which costs your foundry money. There are many di¬erent shakeout designs available on the market today, including brute force, variable drive, and two-mass ...

  • Survival and growth of foodborne microorganisms in processed and individually wrapped cheese slices

    The objectives of the research reported here were to determine the growth, survival, or inactivation of selected microorganisms on individually wrapped processed cheese (IWC) slices stored at 5°C and 22°C, and to compare quality indices. IWC slices were spot-inoculated with foodborne pathogenic bacteria (Listeria monocytogenes, Staphylococcus aureus, and Salmonella spp.), spoilage bacteria ...

  • The MoldSTAT Report

    The MoldSTAT report for spore trap analysis provided by EMLab P&K is a compilation of statistical tests conducted on spore trap data to generally aid in the interpretation of whether the data observed suggests a source of fungal spores from the different locations sampled. The various statistical tests conducted on the data include the Friedman chi-square analysis, the Agreement ratio ...

  • Airborne Ascomycotina on the island of Crete: Seasonal patternsbased on an 8-year volumetric survey

    An 8-year study was conducted on the island of Crete in order to identify airborne ascospores and to determine their seasonal pattern. A Burkard 7-day, volumetric spore-trap was continuously operated in the city of Irakleion – located in the center of the island – from 1994 through 2001. Relatively „high” ascospore counts (20 – 48 spores/m 3) were obtained from mid-spring through ...
