According to the WHO, measles vaccines are freeze-dried and need to be reconstituted with a diluting agent
just before being administered.
Controls also will be finalized by September 6, 2013, for Michler's ketone, a chemical intermediate used in the synthesis of a variety of dyes and pigments; butanone oxime, an anti-skinning agent used in the formulation of alkyd paints and varnishes; and n-butyl glycidyl ether, which is used as a reactive diluting agent
for epoxy resins and a chemical intermediate.
This could be used in physical processes such as crushing, grinding and flotation, magnetic and gravity separation, as well as a diluting agent
in lixiviant preparation (a liquid used to selectively extract metals from an ore or mineral).
Police found the pair surrounded in a cocaine cloud cutting the drug with a diluting agent
in the bath tub.
They also do not require the addition of a diluting agent
during application, and this results in a reduction in solvent emissions.
It's also going to act as a diluting agent
in this drink.
For the GPX assay, hemolysates (50 [micro]L) were diluted with 1 mL of Ransel diluting agent
(Ransel reagent; Randox) and incubated for 5 min, followed by the addition of 1 mL of the Drabkin reagent and mixing (total dilution of the hemolysates before assay, 1:82).
Operating out of a shallow tub of bath water and surrounded in a cocaine cloud, the pair were cutting the drug with a diluting agent
Because in our hands reduced BSA gave high background values, producing negative values, PBS was used as blank, blocking agent, and diluting agent
for the calibrator instead of reduced BSA; antibodies of a different nature were used for a more sensitive detection system [Dako anti-DNP antibody (1: 1000) and Sigma goat anti-rabbit IgG peroxidase conjugate (1:20 000) vs DNP conjugate of keyhole limpet hemocyanin and streptavidin biotinylated horseradish peroxidase (1:3000)].
The approach was further complicated by the fact that the diluting agent
for sodium and potassium was the Urine Electrolyte Diluent (Johnson & Johnson), which could not be used for the other tests, which required dilutions with water.
Excipients are inactive substances used as carriers or diluting agents
in active drug formulations.
In the past, diluting agents
have ranged from brick dust to washing up powder.
