Dry mass

Definition

noun

(1) A reliable measure of the biomass (as opposed to fresh mass).

(2) The dry matter of a sample or of an object when completely dried (lacks or excluding water).


Supplement

Dry mass is a more reliable measure of mass than fresh mass because the former excludes the fluctuating water concentrations in the biological material measured which is present in the latter.


Compare: fresh mass

What is ES Cell Based Gene Overexpression?

... the abbreviation form of Embryonic stem cell. As far as I know, ES Cells are usually pluripotent stem cells. They are derived from the inner cell mass of a blastocyst. ES Cells have the ability to differentiate into any cell type and by their ability to propagate. Therefore, ES cell based overgene ...

"dose"-response curves

... amount of a drug. Typically, an effect increases or decreases with increasing concentration in g/l or mol/l. Why not graphing an effect against a mass in gram or quantity of molecules in moles ? I have data demonstrating that increasing amount of drugs in moles exert an increased cell kill at ...

An Overview of Embryonic Stem Cells

... blastocyst, a hollow sphere of cells containing an outer layer of trophoblast cells which give rise to the placenta and the inner cell mass (ICM), from which ES cells are derived. Cells of the ICM ultimately go on to form the embryo proper and therefore have the capacity to form all ...

Stem Cells and Cell division?

... consists of a hollow ball of cells; trophoblast cells along the periphery develop into the embryonic membranes and placenta while the inner cell mass develops into the fetus. Beyond the blastocyst stage, development is characterized by cell migration in addition to cell division. The gastrula ...
