Thereafter, the body weight of control, DM, and CmNo1-DM mice was recorded weekly for eight weeks with an electrobalance
The system was equipped with an electrobalance
and a platinum Wilhelmy plate (perimeter 3.94 cm) as the surface pressure sensor.
The surface pressure was measured with a Pt-Wilhelmy plate connected to an electrobalance
. The subphase temperature was maintained at (20.0 [+ or -] 0.1)[degrees]C by flowing thermostated water through jackets at the bottom of the trough.
Dried samples were weighed with a Cahn electrobalance
, then ashed for 5 h at 500 [degrees]C.
Standards were prepared from [T.sub.4] (Sigma) measured using a Cahn electrobalance
; standards were run in triplicate, whereas samples were run in duplicate.
 obtained with an electrobalance
method were 17% lower than values interpolated from data in this work (Fig.
Dry mass was measured using a Cahn electrobalance
([plus or minus] 0.1 [micro]g) after drying animals at 55[degrees]C for 24 h.
Tissues were allowed to cool in a desiccator and eviscerated somatic tissue was weighed (dry weight) to the nearest 0.001 g and the gonadal tissue weighed (dry weight) on a Kahn electrobalance
to 0.0001 mg.
Viable seeds from the same plant were pooled and seed mass per 25 seeds was measured on a Cahn electrobalance
. To test for germination rate (and provide plants for the mating system study), seeds were planted in lots of 25 per pot in the greenhouse, after a required dormancy of at least six months.
The tube was attached to an electrobalance
(DataPhysics DCAT21), which could record the weight gain as a function of time when the bottom of the tube touched the testing solvent.
Pulling the rhombic frame to an elongated shape reduced the surface tension of the DPPC film, and the surface tension force was measured by a platinum Wilhelmy plate connected to an electrobalance
On the day of eclosion from the pupa each adult was marked individually with a Pelikan permanent pen on the underside of the hind wing and weighed to the nearest 0.1 mg on a Sauer electrobalance
