Opaque white size 00 HPMC QualiV capsules and V-caps were filled with soybean oil plus Miglyol 812 and then banded using a STI Laboratory Capsule Bander (Schaefer Technologies) with each of the following banding agent formulations: 1) 16% HPMC, 31% water /53% ethanol solution (commonly used for HPMC banding); 2) 22% gelatin water solution; 3) 22% HPMC water solution; and 4) 11% HPMC water solution with gelling agents and gelling aids; including ~1% carrageenan, locust bean gum, and potassium chloride.
Polysorbate 20 or 80 (0.4-0.9%) was added to each banding solution as a surfactant to improve compatibility between the banding solution and HPMC capsules.
Similarly, long-term banding records have shown traditional aluminum leg bands wear out faster on some species.
The researchers conclude that the wide distribution of Porites corals combined with the ubiquity of fulvic compounds in rivers and runoff suggests that fluorescent banding is common in near-shore corals.
