Hemoglobin F (HbF) in blood lysate can be accurately measured by various methods, including immunoassay. In this study, we have produced polyclonal antibody (pAb) against HbF and established a modified sandwich-type ELISA for HbF quantification in blood lysates. The modified sandwich ELISA utilized anti-γ-globin monoclonal antibody clones Thal N/B as the capture antibody (Ab) coated on solid-phase, fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC)-labeled pAb as the detecting Ab, and HPR-labeled anti-FITC Ab as the signal...

In this work, total ambient dose equivalent buildup factors for Portland concrete slabs are calculated using Monte Carlo n-particle software MCNP6™. Buildup factor calculations could approach intractable solutions in general as they depend on a large number of variables. These include geometry, source energy, and the composition of the shield (which itself can be heterogeneous). In this work, Cf and americium-beryllium sources are considered, as well as monoenergetic incident neutrons in the energy range ...
