5-mm BIPS and the 10 mL of 30% barium sulfate suspension, both administered by gavage into the crop, were compared (Table 1).
5-mm BIPS increased over time as they reached each digestive organ and then decreased as they passed through the organ and were eliminated.
This study was done to identify the potential use of BIPS in evaluating the avian digestive system.
We used GI transit times obtained with barium sulfate suspension as a standard to compare BIPS transit times in the GI tract of domestic pigeons.
5-mm BIPS in this study because BIPS particles of this size are designed to mimic GI transit of ingesta, and we were concerned that the 5-mm BIPS, which are designed to detect obstructions, (6) would be too large for the pigeons to readily pass through the ventriculus and might cause an impaction.
5-mm BIPS could be visualized radiographically in the pigeons, even when ingesta was present in the GI tract and that only the V/D view radiographs are necessary to visualize the BIPS.
Mellon Bank's BIPS prototype system is supplied by NCR, using their High Availability Internet server and custom software to receive BIPS formatted payment instructions.
The BIPS prototype projects are designed to demonstrate BIPS' interoperability, test the feasibility of the BIPS method, and to identify any payment system risks and operational issues.
Organizations participating in the BIPS project, which is an effort of the FSTC, include Citibank, Compaq-Tandem Division, Glenview State Bank, Mellon Bank Corporation, Fujitsu Research Institute, GlobeSet Inc.
