First-time users will need to load the Adobe Acrobat Reader on their computers to read the articles in the APL Technical Digest. If you need assistance, see your Systems Administrator.

We have added an MPEG video clip to "Live Organism Toxicity Monitoring: Signal Analysis," by C. C. Sarabun et al. The video clip is an animated demonstration of the concept. You will need an MPEG video player for this demonstration. Information on free and commercial MPEG video players can be found at http://www.mpeg.org/MPEG/MPEG-video-player.html. To download the video, click on the blue rectangle on page 402.

Page icons are located in the left-hand margin of each article. Each icon is a replica of a page in the article. Click on any section of a page icon to navigate to that page or figure within the article. To view the icons, select the view thumbnails icon in Acrobat.
