Gilthead seabream was stored in a refrigerator at 3.8 °C (group C), iced (IO), or iced and covered with paper (IFT) for 18 days, and sensory attributes, chemical (TVB‐N value, TMA‐N value, Ammonia content, and TBA value) and microbial quality (mesophiles and psychrophiles) was measured. Time–temperature indicators (TTI) with adjustable kinetics were stored with the samples. The sensory shelf‐life was measured as 12 days for IO and IFT treatments, and less than 9 days for group C. Mesophilic and psychrophilic counts exceeded permitted limits at day 6 for group C, 9 for groups IO and IFT. TTI activated for 11–15 s correctly predicted the end‐of‐shelf life based on quality indices. It was revealed that TTIs was a useful and practice tool to detect the quality assurance especially for the consumers.Practical applications
TTIs can be used to monitor the changes in quality parameters of fish samples by the consumers in daily life. The study revealed that TTIs could be attached into packaging material, so they give the knowledge on the remaining shelf life of highly perishable fish material easily.
Abstract The single radial immunodiffusion assay has been the accepted method for determining the potency of inactivated influenza vaccines since 1978. The world‐wide adoption of this assay for vaccine standardisation was facilitated through collaborative studies that demonstrated a high ... more
Abstract Background Whether morbidity from the 1918‐19 influenza pandemic discriminated by socioeconomic status has remained a subject of debate for 100 years. In lack of data to study this issue recent literature have hypothesized that morbidity was “socially neutral”. Objectives ... more
Higher coffee consumption is linked with a lower risk of endometrial cancer, a type of cancer that begins in the lining of uterus, according to an analysis of relevant studies published to date. Also, caffeinated coffee may provide better protection than decaffeinated coffee. The analysis, ... more
Smart skin that can respond to external stimuli could have important applications in medicine and robotics. Using only items found in a typical household, researchers have created multi-sensor artificial skin that's capable of sensing pressure, temperature, humidity, proximity, pH, and air ... more
Some doctors may recommend that patients with the flu take acetaminophen, or paracetemol, to relieve their symptoms; however, a new randomized clinical trial found no benefits to the over-the-counter medication in terms of fighting the influenza virus or reducing patients' temperature or ot ... more
