... The launch of the South Africas first locally produced ultrafiltration membrane technology will take place on the 29th October 2009 in Somerset West. Most membranes used in South Africa have been imported at great cost. With this in mind, a joint research project, funded by the Water Research Commission (WRC), was initiated in 1996 and succeeded to develop suitable and cost-effective, locally produced, ultrafiltration membranes and filtration systems for use in water treatment and industrial water management. These ultrafiltration purification systems are capable of removing particulate matter, colour, bacteria (such as cholera), viruses and parasitic micro-organisms without the need to add chemicals says Mr Andrew Theunissen, Chairman of Ikusasa Water, the company manufacturing these membranes: "Purification systems using these membranes will be able to meet any drinking water supply need of communities ...

A method of removing ash from sugar containing solutions comprises contacting the sugar containing solution against one side of an ultrafiltration membrane with a stripping fluid to strip away monovalent ions and low molecular weight sugars which pass through the membrane. The stripping fluid is contacted at high pressure against one side of a nanofiltration membrane which allows passage of monovalent ions and water only. The deashed retentate can be returned to sugar containing solution, pass through an ion exchange column or cause to contact one side of a high pressure ultrafiltration membrane which allows passage of water monovalent ions and low molecular weight sugars. The permeate from the high pressure ultrafiltration membrane can be subjected to ion exchange to provide a liquid sugar having a low ash content while the retentate can be evaporated to a sugar product. The use of the semipermeable membranes allows efficient deashing of sugar containing solutions (i.e. sugar cane or sugar beet

This study aimed to develop improved cleaning strategies for controlling biofilms on the surfaces of membranes used in dairy ultrafiltration (UF) and reverse osmosis (RO) plants. Eleven UF / RO membrane modules from 7 different New Zealand dairy membrane processing plants were received after typical cleaning-in-place (CIP) procedures. Microorganisms were isolated from both the retentate and permeate sides of these membrane surfaces and from the liquids collected from a UF membrane plant. Also some foulants scraped from a RO membrane were tested. The routine CIP currently used in the dairy plants was not adequate to completely remove organic material, including microbial cells, proteins and carbohydrates from the membrane surfaces. These residues may influence the surface characteristics and interactions between microorganisms and membranes and thus affect biofilm formation. Thirteen isolates including both bacteria and yeast were identified using biochemical techniques. Klebsiella oxytoca were ...

Our previous results showed that intrasynovial Rifamycin SV caused the lysis of synoviocites and freed the autoantigens which in turn stimulated the immunoregulatory rather than autoreactive T cell response in rheumatoid patients. Here, we hypothesize that disruption in vitro of peripheral blood mononuclear cells, by freeze/thawing or by lytic action of Rifamycin SV, would induce the release of endosomal pathogenic autoantigens from APCs present in the circulation, which could then be isolated from degrading enzymes by ultrafiltration. The preparation of the ultrafiltrates are based on the rupture of PBMCs (5 × 106 cells/mL) by the addition of Rifamycin SV in culture (250 μg/mL), which causes the lysis of 90 % of the cells in 3 h, or by three cycles of freeze/thawing of the PBMC, from −80 °C to room temperature. The lysate and the fragmented cells were then centrifuged and ultrafiltered by passage through a filtration device with a cut-off of 10 kDa. Also the synovial fluid was subjected to

This research identified unintended consequences of integrating ultrafiltration and its required ancillary cleaning systems within conventional surface water treatment facilities. Carboxylic acids, used in ultrafiltration membrane chemically enhanced backwashes, were demonstrated to interfere with ferric chloride and alum coagulation if recycled into coagulation basins at sufficient acid to coagulant (A/C) molar ratios. Tricarboxylic citric acid and monocarboxylic acetic acid were shown to interfere with conventional coagulation process performance. Significant changes in settled water turbidity, true colour and metal concentrations were observed in jar tests designed to simulate full-scale water treatment plant operations. A threshold A/C molar ratio for coagulation interference was identified for three surface waters in the United States based on sedimentation basin performance goals established by the US Environmental Protection Agency. Citric acid interfered with coagulation at A/C molar ...
There have been, and continue to be, reports of discordant free thyroxine (T4)1 measurements when different free-T4 methods are applied to the same serum samples (1)(2)(3)(4). Our laboratory has attempted to identify some of the factors that contribute to these disparities.. There are 4 separate components of serum T4: free T4, albumin-bound T4, transthyretin-bound T4, and thyroxine-binding globulin (TBG)-bound T4. Free T4 is the one component that moves across semipermeable membranes during equilibrium dialysis and ultrafiltration. As Midgley and Christofides point out, the gold standard free-T4 methods are designed to measure this component.. We applied analog-type methods and an equilibrium-dialysis/immunoassay gold standard method to carefully prepared solutions in which we varied these 4 components of serum T4. This equilibrium-dialysis method agrees closely with a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry method applied to serum ultrafiltrates (4). We also applied this equilibrium ...
The production of clarified and stable apple juice poses a challenge to the beverage industry. Today, this type of apple juice is produced by what are called microfiltration and ultrafiltration membrane technologies. These automated technologies offer a definite advantage in terms of productivity. However, certain juices can be very acidic and particularly rich in proteins and tannins; in such cases, membrane fouling can make the technology less attractive for apple juice clarification. It would be impossible to go back to the old clarification technique, which could take up to 20 hours and involved several steps, including the use of large quantities of enzymes to break down the pectin, followed by the addition of a clarifying agent (such as gelatine) to the freshly pressed juice to precipitate the proteins and tannins. It was necessary to wait until everything settled to the bottom before filtering it all through a filter press.. ...
Low abundant proteins make up about 1% of the entire human serum proteome, with the remaining 99% being comprised of only 22 proteins. It is therefore imperative to deplete the level of abundant proteins as an essential first step in the characterization of serum by MS analyses. Prefractionation approaches employing chromatographic adsorbents (e.g. anti-HSA antibodies, Cibacron Blue) have been used to remove abundant proteins such as albumin, however, these methods likely result in the removal of LMW species bound to albumin (10). We used centrifugal ultrafiltration employing Centriplus 30 (YM30) membrane ultrafilters to deplete abundant proteins such as albumin and enrich for LMW proteins. The method described here allows for the rapid and efficient removal of albumin and other highly abundant proteins while minimizing the concomitant loss of LMW components potentially bound to high abundant proteins. An earlier study by Georgiou et al. (21) reported that ultrafiltration failed to remove ...
Norovirus, which can cause nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, is the most common cause of viral gastroenteritis in humans, and is estimated to be the second leading cause of gastroenteritis-associated mortality, according to BGU. In the study, which was published in the March edition of the journal Water Research, Prof. Moshe Herzberg of the Department of Desalination and Water Treatment in the Zuckerberg Institute for Water Research at BGU and his group grafted a special hydrogel coating onto a commercial ultrafiltration membrane.. The "zwitterionic polymer hydrogel" repels the viruses from approaching and passing through the membrane. It contains both positive and negative charges and improves efficiency by weakening virus accumulation on the modified filter surface.. The result, the international scientists report, was a significantly higher rate of removal of waterborne viruses, including the human norovirus and adenovirus. This article was originally published by Israel21c. Click here to ...
Tolerance to suspended solids *Process Suspended solids, micro-organisms and dissolved organic contaminantsare effectively removed by the "sieving" process; that is, contaminantstoo large to pass through the membrane pores remain in what becomes theconcentrate stream. For dissolved inorganic (ionic) contaminant removal, the membranetechnologies of nanofiltration and reverse osmosis must be employed,and since the pores of the membranes, although smaller than for themicrofiltration and ultrafiltration membranes, are not small enough tophysically sieve out these contaminants, a different mechanism applieshere. There is lack of agreement among the experts as to the exact mechanismof this rejection; however, it is known that multivalent salts arerejected to a higher degree than monovalent salts. This characteristicis exploited with nanofiltration membranes which exhibit overall lowersalts rejection than reverse osmosis membranes, but remove multivalentsalts to a much higher degree than monovalent ...

An ultrafiltration filter has a pore size around 0.01 micron. A microfiltration filter has a pore size around 0.1 micron, so when water undergoes microfiltration, many microorganisms are removed, but viruses remain in the water. Ultrafiltration would remove these larger particles, and may remove some viruses.

Glycation and carbonyl stress produced by methylglyoxal (MG) as a consequence of triose flux in glycolysis has been implicated in the etiology of metabolic syndrome and diabetes complications. An integrated estimation of MG flux is provided by measuring concentrations of its catabolite D-lactate in serum. However, no studies have explored the pathway in childhood obesity. Objective: Study serum concentrations of D-lactate and low molecular weight advanced glycation end-products (LMWAGE) in lean vs adolescents with obesity. Material and Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study of 30 lean and 30 obese adolescents between the ages of 15-19 years. D-lactate was measured kinetically in serum ultrafiltrates by an adaptation of a colorimetric method from Sigma. Total and LMW-AGEs were measured by fluorescence (Excitation: λ 370 nm, Emission: λ 440 nm). The Ethical Committee of the Institution approved this study and informed consent was obtained from the participant adolescents and their parents.

Ceramic microfiltration (MF) membranes were used to separate serum proteins (SP) from casein (CN) micelles in skim milk. The impact of skim milk soluble calcium and lactose concentrations, retentate flow channel geometry (round or diamond-shaped), uniform transmembrane pressure (UTP), and retentate flow channel diameter (4 mm or 6 mm) on factors that impact MF process efficiency (SP removal, limiting flux (LF), and limiting retentate protein concentration (LRPC)) were determined. Skim milk LF (91 kg[MIDDLE DOT]m-2[MIDDLE DOT]h-1) was lower than milk protein concentrate with added lactose (MPC+L) LF (124 kg[MIDDLE DOT]m-2[MIDDLE DOT]h-1) due to a reduction in calcium. MPC+L LF was lower than milk protein concentrate (MPC) LF (137 kg[MIDDLE DOT]m-2[MIDDLE DOT]h-1) due to the higher viscosity contributed by lactose. No differences in SP removal were detected among the 3 feeds below the LF. Feeding a MF system with MPC instead of skim milk will reduce the membrane surface area required to process a ...

Despite significant technical improvements (bicarbonate dialysate, volumetric ultrafiltration control) high intradialytic ultrafiltration is troublesome in children, specially in the proportion of patients presenting a normal or low blood pressure even with overweight. We used, in this group of children (overhydratated without vascular repercution) a modelling of both sodium and ultrafiltration during dialysis, in order to achieve dry body weight without increasing session time despite hypotension risks. The usefulness and practicability of sodium and ultrafiltration modelling together during dialysis in children is analysed in a short time study (for plasma volume changes calculation) and in a long term follow up study over a year (for clinical tolerance ...

The influence of the physicochemical conditions on the permeation rate in dead-end and cross flow ultrafiltration of protein dispersions is investigated. The rigorous mathematical models developed are based on sophisticated descriptions of the protein-protein interactions within the layer close to the membrane surface which is responsible for controlling the permeation rate. The calculations are expressed in terms of an osmotic pressure which accounts for the multiparticle electrostatic interactions, dispersion forces and configurational entropy. Electrostatic interactions are accounted for by a Wigner-Seitz cell approach including a numerical solution of the non-linear Poisson-Boltzmann equation. London-van der Waals forces are calculated using a computationally efficient means of approximating screened, retarded Lifshitz-Hamaker constants. Configurational entropy effects are calculated using an equation of state giving excellent agreement with molecular dynamic data. Electroviscous effects are ...

The rate at which fluid is removed during ultrafiltration plays an important role. Kidneys are one of the most vital organs in our bodies. Harmful by-products generated in our metabolic processes are removed from our bodies. Not only waste material but all the excess substances like water, glucose, vitamins etc. are also removed to establish the balance.. Ultrafiltration is the process where the blood is filtered under high pressure, and most of the substances in blood go into the nephron. In haemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis treatment it is important to quantify the blood flow rate, and the dialysate flow rate to account for the fluid removal (ultrafiltration) during dialysis as well as urea generation. ...

Im looking at the programs in alto and it seems theyre not too focused on biology more engineering, but in a way thats great, new methods for studying things hard to study. I appreciate the book recommendations on soft matter, Ill look into them and perhaps when I have the funds Ill purchase one. It seems like theres some overlap on soft matter and rheology (not that I know anything about that either)... the word liquid crystal is great. Also it seems like its a meeting point for studying physical properties of cell membranes and ECM/interstitium...very interesting. :) $\endgroup$ - Jasand Pruski Jan 29 15 at 0:38 ...
