Gas Exchange Monitor market: Key Players Some of the key players present in global gas exchange monitor market are GE Healthcare, Philips, MediPines, Uniphos Envirotronic Pvt Ltd, Industrial Scientific Corporation, ADC Bioscientific Ltd, ADInstruments, ATi UKt, ChemDAQ, Inc., COSMED, and others.
Companies namely, Thermo Fischer Scientific, DSM, Charm Sciences, Perkin Elmer (BioScientific Corp), Labtek Services Ltd., NEOGEN Food Safety, IDEXX Labs, R-Biopharm, Eurofins and Sciex are expected to instrument the global production of antibiotic residue test kits during the forecast period.
At 120 DAS, gas exchanges were measured based on stomatal conductance (mol [H.sub.2]O [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]), transpiration (mmol [H.sub.2]O [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]), C[O.sub.2] assimilation rate ([micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]) and internal C[O.sub.2] concentration ([micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]) (CI) in the third leaf, counted from the apex, with irradiation of 1200 [micro]mol photons [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1] and air flow rate of 200 mL [min.sup.-1], using the portable photosynthesis meter "LCPro+" of ADC BioScientific Ltda.
The gaseous exchange were determined in the third leaf counted from apex, at 150 days post application of the salinity levels, using the portable tool of photosynthesis measurement "LCPro+" of ADC BioScientific Ltd., operating with irradiation 1200 [micro]mol photons [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1] and air flow of 200 mL [min.sup.-1], and C[O.sub.2] from the environment at the height of 3 m from the soil surface, obtaining the following variables: C[O.sub.2] assimilation rate (A) ([micro]mol [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]), transpiration (E) (mol [H.sub.2]O [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]), stomatal conductance (gs) (mol [H.sub.2]O [m.sup.-2] [s.sup.-1]) and internal C[O.sub.2] concentration.
Medically inexplicable pain was described as a challenge for research and clinical practice to handle since these conditions do not easily fit into the traditional bioscientific medical system [6, 69-71, 77, 80].
The polyphasic rise of fluorescence transients was measured by means of an OS5p Modulator Fluorometer (ADC BioScientific Ltd, Great Amwell Herts, UK) (Strasser et al., 1995).
At various times, magazines adopt a rhetorical perspective in discourse tones, directing the reader to practices consistent with some bioscientific normalcy and the activities recommended by the reports, while at the same time infusing a diffuse fear that some harm to health--or to life--may succeed in case of non-compliance with such practices, emphasizing the collective fear of "punishment" if the rules and norms of conduct presented are not complied to.
Gas exchange parameters: Photosynthetic gas exchange parameters were measured between 10:00 and 12:00 h using a portable photosynthetic meter model (LCi, IRGA; ADC Bioscientific Ltd.).
