  • Patent number: 7225598
    Abstract: The present invention provides for method and system in which a heat-shrinkable plastic cover is placed over an individual conventional medicine container. The cover is heat shrunk around the container to form a tight-fitting seal which covers the majority of the original medication container. The seal must be opened in order to gain entry into an individual medication container just prior to the use or the administration of the product in the container. The seal includes an easy-open mechanism, such as a pull-tab or perforated tear strip. The purpose of the seal is to distinguish high-alert medications and requires an additional safety step in the medication administration process by requiring the removal of an additional cover which entirely encloses the container. The non-adhesive nature of the seal is significant in that the removal of the seal does not damage the original product labeling or leave unwanted residue on the medication container.

  • Patent number: 7214363
    Abstract: Composite microparticles having thin coating layers can be simply prepared by bringing a host particle precursor into contact with a flame generated in a burner movably mounted at the bottom of a coating apparatus, by introducing the precursor in the form of a vapor or micronized liquid droplets upwardly into the burner, to obtain host particles; and introducing a gaseous coating precursor upwardly toward the host particles in or around the flame, the coating precursor being protected by an inert gas introduced therearound such that the formation of particles derived from the coating precursor itself is prevented.

  • Patent number: 7189379
    Abstract: An object of the present invention is to provide a production process for methanol in which a distillation system is reduced in a size by removing efficiently heat generated in a methanol synthesis reaction and inhibiting by-products from being formed. The present invention provides a production process for methanol comprising a synthetic gas production step in which hydrocarbon is reacted with steam to generate synthetic gas comprising main components of hydrogen, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, a methanol synthesis step in which the synthetic gas described above is reacted on a methanol synthesis catalyst and resulting crude methanol is recovered in the form of liquid and a distillation step in which recovered crude methanol described above is distilled to be separated into waste water containing low boiling organic compounds and high boiling organic compounds and refined methanol, wherein a reactor having a specific structure is used in the methanol synthesis step described above.

  • Patent number: 7143942
    Abstract: To reliably process a card such as a credit card to acquire accurate card information in accordance with the present invention without lowering job productivity, magnetic data is read from the card and in the same operation the front of the card is scanned to secure an image of data information such as the card number. The resulting image data is stored in memory. A control unit in conjunction with a reading evaluator such as a computer determines if the magnetic data has been successfully read or not. If reading the magnetic data is not successful, an OCR unit extracts the card number from the card by OCR processing of the scanned image data. The card number extracted by the OCR unit is then used for a card C authorization check.
