Six organizations including NIMS, Kyocera, Osaka University, NEC, Sumitomo Seika and NanoWorld jointly launched the MSS Alliance on September 25, 2015, with the purpose of establishing a de facto standard for odor analysis and sensor systems employing an ultra-small sensor element called the Membrane-type Surface stress Sensor (MSS).
No matter how fast or accurate a crop stress sensor may be, or how accurate a crop water use model is, much of the problem lies with limitations of the irrigation system itself.
p53 is a central cellular stress sensor that responds to multiple insults including oxidative stress and is known to orchestrate apoptotic and autophagic types of cell death.
Because the fluorescence is so sensitive, it could be a mechanical stress sensor," says Baumgartner.
However, these measures do not provide information about the cushion's ability to reduce interface shear stress at the patient's IT, and an interface shear stress sensor may aid clinicians in their cushion selection.
The most important stress sensor is the plant itself, and it is possible to differentiate between different stressors.
Researchers at NUI Galway have shown that a protein produced when cells are stressed interacts with a stress sensor allowing cells to survive conditions of intense stress.
Experiments by his group and others, he notes, now "suggest a role for ceramide in various forms of [cell] growth suppression and cell death"--perhaps through its ability to serve as a stress sensor.
IRT crop water stress sensors may soon be useful for farmers.
The 3D FEA simulation results were confirmed by use of stress-measurement data, obtained by use of stress sensors built into the test chip.
