Electrolyte Content of Some Soft Drinks

AbstractSoft drinks are consumed daily in Nigeria due to their characteristic taste, palatability, affordability and thirst quenching potential. This study quantifies the amount of electrolytes of Biochemical significance in selected soft drinks sold in Port Harcourt and their pH values. The samples included six frequently consumed soft drinks; (Coke, Sprite, Fayrouz, Mountain-Dew, Fanta and Pepsi). The results showed that the samples contain relatively high amount of Sodium(Na+) ranging from...

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN ATTENDANCE SYSTEM USING FINGERPRINT SCANNER

This research work, Design and Implementation of an Attendance System using fingerprint scanner, focuses on computerizing and managing the attendance of students during lecture or event periods. This is very imperative as the cons of the traditional pen to paper attendance system far outweigh the pros as management of student attendance has become a hassle due to increasing number of students during various lecture periods. This study would discuss in detail, how the inconveniences pos...

DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A HOSPITAL MEDICAL INFORMATION SYSTEM USING FEDERAL MEDICAL CENTER, ABUJA AS A CASE STUDY

Computer and data have become an integral part of every enterprise and business today. Accurate data which is transformed to information is required for any industry to perform at optimal level as such is used in decisive management and decision making processes. This therefore makes such organisations critically dependent on the use of a database system to help in accessing such data and information. However, many hospitals are found to be somewhat “stuck” on the present manual pa...

Microbiological Analysis and Susceptibility Pattern of Bacteria Isolated from Ratus rattus and Felis catus Faecal Pellets from Residenal Houses of Akungba Communities in Ondo State, Nige

Rats have become household commensals that are found in resi- dential areas and offices. Cat faeces and rat faecal pellets are in every corner of the house especially in the food stores and this may pose a serious hazard because the faeces may contain microorganisms that are both pathogenic to humans and resistant to several classes of antibiotics. The aim of this study was to evaluate the potentials for zoonotic infections and for the presence of antibiotic resistant bacteria in rat faecal p...

GEOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS WITH RESPECT TO GOLD MINERALIZATION OF BENI/KAFIN-KORO AREA (PART OF SHEET 165, BISHINI SW), NORTH-CENTRAL, NIGERIA

A total of 21 samples were analyzed in the laboratory, Inductively Coupled Plasma-Atomic Emission Spectrum (ICP-AES) was employed in the whole rock analysis for oxides, total sulphide (TOS), total carbon (TOC) and loss on ignition (LOI), while Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectroscopy (ICP-MS) was employed in the analysis for trace metals including gold, and rare earth elements (REE) that were either associated with or served as pathfinder for gold. Statistical anal...

Antimicrobial Activity, Chemical Compositions and Proximate Analysis of Ixora Coccinea L. Leaves on Some Clinical Pathogens

Plants derived bioactive compounds have been the centre of recent owing to their health promoting effects. An attempt was made in evaluating the phytochemical, minerals, proximate and anti-microbial activity of analyses standard agar well diffusion method saponins, tannins, flavon minerals analysis revealed the presence of manganese and phosphorus. Highest mineral content was recorded in magnesium (21. Proximate analysis showed the presence of ash (10.3%), moisture (7.10%), protein (16.45%),...
