eye banking: the minnesota experience.we present a brief report on the activities of the minnesota lions eye bank. this eye bank receives and supplies tissue to several midwestern states. in addition, it plays a vital role in providing tissue for research and training at the university of minnesota. in association with the department of ophthalmology, the eye bank is also actively involved in the research and development of various corneal preservation systems. included below is information relative to procedures used in the eye ban ...19902221705
tissue utilization at the minnesota lions' eye bank.the purpose of this study was to examine the utilization of corneas procured by the minnesota lions' eye bank to determine why corneas were excluded from transplantation and to identify methods to safely increase the number of tissues made available for transplantation. we performed a retrospective review of the eye bank charts of 2,382 corneas evaluated by the minnesota lions' eye bank between december 1, 1992 and november 30, 1993. during that time 748 corneas (31%) were made available for tra ...19958575175
synoptic sampling and principal components analysis to identify sources of water and metals to an acid mine drainage stream.combining the synoptic mass balance approach with principal components analysis (pca) can be an effective method for discretising the chemistry of inflows and source areas in watersheds where contamination is diffuse in nature and/or complicated by groundwater interactions. this paper presents a field-scale study in which synoptic sampling and pca are employed in a mineralized watershed (lion creek, colorado, usa) under low flow conditions to (i) quantify the impacts of mining activity on stream ...201728589273
the minnesota grading system of eye bank eyes for age-related macular degeneration.the minnesota grading system (mgs) is a method to evaluate human eye bank eyes and determine the level of age-related macular degeneration (amd), by using criteria and definitions from the age-related eye disease study (areds).200415557458
