Dry weight is a fundamental part of the dialysis prescription.
Correlation analysis showed that seed weight was positively correlated with shoot dry weight, root dry weight, total root length and root volume (data not shown).
The specimen was freeze-dried for 48 hr before determination of the dry weight. The heating program for the microwave oven was 10 min at 100% power followed by 5 min at 5% and 10 min at 100% power.
All isolates of the same clone (strains 167, 165, 177, 179, 173, and 317) showed a similar pattern of biofilm formation by dry weight (Figure 4A), which suggests that biofilm formation by these isolates is consistent and not site-induced.
Water use efficiency, expressed as kg water absorbed per unit weight of dry matter produced by plants, significantly correlates with the dry weight of the plant.
The plants were placed in an oven for 24 hours and dry weights were measured and recorded.
For 85% of the HIC measurements on deparaffinized specimens, the result was either within 20% of the fresh result or both results fell within the reference interval of 5-24 mmol/kg dry weight (92% for 65 samples with dry weights [greater than or equal to] 0.4 mg and 71% for 35 specimens with dry weights <0.4 mg).
