In the near term, the following activities will likely influence and enhance ASAS, IMETS, and DTSS interoperability:
DTSS, TerraVista, and TOPSCENE can import and export data in commercial formats.
If the supported unit is not digital, the DTSS produces color images of the overlay, or any other product, for limited hardcopy distribution.
The DTSS will incorporate BTRA in the fall 2002 delivery, with continued software upgrades as commercial industry and government labs build added functionality.
Cell viability was detected using a Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK8) assay (Dojindo Laboratories, Kumamoto, Japan), according to the manufacturer's instructions, Briefly, TDSCs were inoculated on normal and degenerative DTSs with a density of 1000 cells/[cm.sup.2], At selected time points, TDSCs were incubated with DMEM plus 10% (v/v) CCK8 at 37[degrees]C for 2 h, then 200 [micro]l supernatant was used to measure the absorbance, The absorbance at 450 nm with a reference wavelength of 630 nm was recorded using a microplate reader (FC, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Pittsburgh, PA, USA).
Concurrently with the initial NEWater projects and the first desalination project, such water development projects as the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System (DTSS) Changi Water Reclamation Plant and the Marina Barrage projects were undertaken.
