In the microgravity experiments at the International Space Station (ISS), scientists revealed that supercooled water containing antifreeze glycoproteins accelerates and oscillates its ice crystal growth rate. This seemingly contradictory result may lead to a better understanding of the mysterious antifreeze effect in living organisms. Fish can survive even in subzero environments, such as under ice floes. Researchers have hypothesized that when glycoproteins contained in fish blood are absorbed on the surface of ice crystals, it curbs the growth of ice crystals. Verifying the functions of these glycoproteins requires precise measurements of the normal growth rates of crystals over time. Yet this is difficult to do so on the Earth because of the natural convective flow around the growing crystal induced by gravity. The researchers, led by Hokkaido University Professor Emeritus Yoshinori Furukawa, hoped to use the microgravity conditions of space to accurately measure the normal growth rates of crystal faces, as convective flow does not occur in this environment. To carry out the experiments on the ISS, Hokkaido University's Institute of Low Temperature Science and JAXA jointly developed Ice Crystal Cell 2, a device for measuring the speed of ice crystal growth in space. Once installed in the Japanese experiment module KIBO, experiments were carried out by controlling the device using signals from the ground. The researchers conducted 124 experiments of which 22 were deemed to have accurately measured ice crystal growth rates in supercooled water containing a glycoprotein impurity. The results showed that the bottom basal faces of the ice crystals grew three to five times faster than in pure water. Ice crystals also exhibited periodic oscillations as they grew. "The results were contrary to what was expected, as the glycoprotein actually facilitated the growth of ice crystals, rather than curbing it," says Ken Nagashima of the research team. What, then, explains glycoprotein's antifreeze effect? The researchers discovered the tricky process in which flat crystal faces with high growth rates were truncated by faces with slower growth rates, causing the polyhedral crystal to be surrounded by only flat faces with the lowest growth rates. This resulted in greatly slowing down the growth of the ice crystals. "Our results suggest that the prevention of freezing in living organisms cannot be solely explained by the growth depression effect of glycoproteins. In other words, the novel mechanism we observed is essential for preventing living organisms from freezing," says Nagashima. "The function of glycoproteins in ice crystal growth is closely connected to how biopolymers regulate the growth of various inorganic crystals. A better understanding of this may lead to the creation of novel materials", he added.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kibo, the world’s leading cloud-based unified commerce platform, today announced the availability of enhanced personalization capabilities within its Real-Time Individualization™ solution, including Buy It Again and Real-Time Trending. Building on Kibo’s industry leading personalization technology, these new features will provide retailers and manufacturers the ability to produce the most relevant product suggestions for consumers at a time they are most likely to buy, further optimizing conversion and revenue growth. Kibo’s Buy It Again is an advanced feature that takes the traditional replenishment model to the next level. It is a new strategy that looks at the purchase patterns of items in the catalog to predict when a user may buy that item again, utilizing advanced machine learning instead of relying on the user to set the display frequency. The algorithm is most effective for repeat purchase products. “As consumers, we’ve all had the annoying experience of continuously seeing product recommendations of items we just purchased,” says Danielle Roberts, product manager – eCommerce and real-time individualization, Kibo. “It’s a waste of real estate for the merchant when they could be using that space to show something much more relevant that the consumer is more likely to buy. Kibo’s Buy It Again feature is a machine learning algorithm that recommends items when consumers are most likely to buy them again. Our solution reduces customer friction and is less intrusive than forcing to select a replenishment cadence for products. Relevancy and timing are critical to optimize repurchase conversion, and we are seeing fantastic results for our early adopters.” Kibo’s Buy It Again feature is providing incredible results even above and beyond standard product recommendation features within its Real-Time Individualization solution. With Buy It Again, on average customers are seeing: Kibo has also released its Real-Time Trending feature which processes site activity in real time and uncovers trending products and content to display to the consumer across all devices and touchpoints. This new feature is attractive to sites with high traffic and becomes more powerful when combined with geolocation. By adding geolocation data to the algorithm, Real-Time Trending allows the merchandiser to create dynamic experiences that resonate with the consumer based on what is trending in their area – further increasing relevancy and conversion likelihood. “In our work with retailers and manufacturers, personalization is at the top of their list to roll out this year,” says Jennifer Sherman, SVP product and strategy, Kibo. “The results we’ve seen with our Real-Time Individualization solution speak for themselves.

DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kibo, the world’s leading cloud-based omnichannel commerce platform, in partnership with Astound Commerce, has released a new study titled The State of Omnichannel Commerce: A Mystery Shopping Study. The study assessed the current personalization and omnichannel sophistication from a sample of 30 popular and growing retailers testing metrics across desktop, mobile and in-store buying touchpoints. Based on pre-established criteria, the study also aimed to understand how well each retailer executes an omnichannel shopping experience, as well as strengths and areas for improving a seamless customer experience. The study focused on four major categories – fulfillment and inventory, personalization, pricing consistency and in-store signage – across a defined set of 57 metrics to evaluate an end-to-end omnichannel experience. The results found that while retailers are making progress in their journey to an omnichannel reality, there are still several gaps across even the most mature of retailers, creating many opportunities for improvement. A number of interesting findings included: “This is the second year Kibo has published a mystery shopping study and our findings show some notable progress for retailers in providing omnichannel shopping experiences,” said Tushar Patel, CMO, Kibo. “While the number of retailers with access to enterprise-wide inventory and some personalized experiences has grown, many are missing the basics for a seamless customer experience. This year, we have identified crucial gaps across digital and in-store buying touchpoints that can significantly improve the shopping experience. These include some of the basics: personalization for all shoppers--known and unknown--with more relevant recommendations and promotions, and allowing access to inventory information across the entire buying journey with the ability to place an order efficiently. Retailers that close these gaps will deliver better experiences for their consumers and will be the winners of tomorrow’s retail industry. Those who do not take action today will risk long term sales growth and customer loyalty.” “Demanding shoppers continue to evolve and expect that retailers will consistently and efficiently deliver personalized experiences across all of their channels,” said Lauren Freedman, SVP of Digital Strategy, Astound Commerce. “Today’s must-haves include tailored shopping efforts, access and sophistication across channels along with choices in delivery options based on the shopper’s ever-changing needs.” For complimentary access to the study, please Click Here.

Sometimes, distance can lend a new perspective to a problem. For Japanese researchers studying protein crystal growth, that distance was 250 miles up—the altitude at which the International Space Station (ISS) orbits the Earth. To better isolate the growth of protein crystals from the effects of gravity, the group of Katsuo Tsukamoto in Tohoku University's Department of Earth and Planetary Science in Sendai, Japan, and the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency grew crystals in a specially-designed chamber onboard the ISS. The researchers monitored the very slow growth and dissolution rate—approximately one centimeter per second of the crystals by laser interferometry. This was the first time the technique had been used onboard the ISS to measure the growth rate of the crystals at various temperatures. To observe this, Yamazaki and his colleagues developed unique growth cells suitable for long-term projects, for about six months. "We are interested in the growth mechanisms of a space-grown protein crystal—a lysozyme crystal—as a model crystal to understand why space-grown crystals sometimes do show better quality than the Earth-grown crystals," said Tomoya Yamazaki, a ddoctorate student in Tsukamoto's lab. Tsukamoto and his colleagues, which includes collaborators at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, Japan Space Forum, Olympus Optical Corporation, detail their elegant growth method this week in Review of Scientific Instruments. The experimental process, known as NanoStep, was performed in the Japanese Experimental Module (KIBO) of the International Space Station in 2012. Tsukamoto and his colleagues had previously measured the growth rates of protein crystals under simulated microgravity by using a Russian recoverable satellite and aircraft in parabolic flights. The researchers took precise measurements of the growth rate of the lysozyme crystals versus their driving force, supersaturation - the natural logarithm of the protein's concentration divided by its solubility—with measurements of the solution's refractive index distribution obtained through interferometry. This also yielded crucial information about the growth mechanism. The researchers opted to modify the supersaturation of the solution by increasing or decreasing the growth cell's temperature, which can easily be done remotely. This took place over a range of 10—40 degrees Celsius, which necessitated building a closed growth cell to withstand the stresses caused by the thermal expansion of the growth solution. The closed, cube-like growth cell was constructed out of quartz glasses with different thickness, an essential component for laser interferometry due to its high chemical and mechanical resistances with a protein seed crystal glued to the top of the sample holder. To relieve the thermal stress on the glass, the researchers attached tubes made out of an elastomer, low-moisture-permeability thermoelastic polymer. This was selected to mitigate evaporation of water in the crystal growth solution, which consisted of 30 or 35 mg/ml of lysozyme and 25 mg/ml sodium chloride in 50 mM sodium acetate buffer solution. They also employed a special spring tension system to reduce stress by keeping the gap between the glass cell and thermal control modules constant amid thermal expansion. The growth cell could also be used to fine-tune the measurements of extremely small growth or dissolution rates of insoluble minerals on the order of 0.001 nanometers per second of insoluble minerals. For example, it could measure calcium carbonate crystals, where margins of error could become massive across a geological time scale - such as predicting the dissolution of clay minerals surrounding nuclear waste stored underground for 100,000 years. While the researchers expected growth rates of the crystal solution to be slower because of the suppression of solution convection, the results instead showed an increased growth rate. This may be due to the suppression of transport speed of impurity molecules with larger diameter to the growing crystal, as analyzed the growth rate versus supersaturation relations. This will appear in forthcoming papers. Extended projects for the researchers using the same apparatus to test the growth of different crystals, such as glucose isomerase crystals, are currently in preparation.
