  • Patent number: 9559544
    Abstract: A system that incorporates teachings of the subject disclosure may include, for example, wireless chargers combined with wireless interrogators. The wireless chargers can transmit power wirelessly, while also wirelessly interrogating a nearby transponder, such as an RFID tag. The wireless chargers with wireless interrogators can also be programmable to allow user-implemented rules operable in response to an interrogation. Such rules can impose restrictions upon whether wireless charging is allowed to take place. Such rules can also be used to select a power-transmitting protocol that is particularly suited for the electronic device being charged. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 4968629
    Abstract: A universal blood diluent for use in hematology analysis is the subject of this invention. The diluent consists of an aqueous solution of 0.4-1.5% by weight of either Na.sub.2 SO.sub.4 or NaNO.sub.3 or a combination of the two. Also included is 0.1-0.4% by weight of a salt of the formula XH.sub.2 PO.sub.4 where X is either Na or K and 0.1-2.4% by weight of a salt of the formula X.sub.2 HPO where X is Na or K. The phosphate salts may be hydrous or anhydrous. A mixture of Na and K phosphate salts may also been employed. The salts should be present in a ratio of from 1:1 to 1:6 (by weight), XH.sub.2 PO.sub.4 :X.sub.2 HPO.sub.4. 0.1 to 1% by weight of one or both of NaCl and KCl is also included. The Na.sub.2 SO.sub.4 and NaNO.sub.3 should be present in a ratio of at least 1:1 (by weight) relative to the chloride salt. The pH of the diluent should be within the range of 6.0-8.0 and it should have an osmotic strength of 200-400 milliosmoles.

  • Patent number: 4745071
    Abstract: Improved reagents and methods for obtaining distinct volumetric differentiation of platelets, erythocytes and certain leukocyute subpopulations are disclosed. 1,3-dimethylurea is disclosed as a cell stabilizing agent for use in the blood diluent reagent. A hematology analyzer detergent is described wherein the addition of a wetting agent to the diluent of the instant invention provides the necessary attributes of an automatic analyzer detergent. The lysing reagent exploits the selective and intrinsically gentle lytic qualities of the dodecyl quaternary ammonium salt. The improved method modifies the leukocytes so that the frequent lymphocyte and neutrophil subpopulations are well separated on a volume scale, permitting quantitative evaluation of infrequent and rare leukocyte subpopulations as well as improved enumeration of the lymphocytes and neutrophils.

  • Patent number: 4388689
    Abstract: A plurality of data entry terminals is connected to a microprocessor system which analyzes terminal data for display on a production CRT, intended to be located in a restaurant kitchen. Food items entered on the terminal are displayed with a corresponding symbol denoting a work station where such food item is to be prepared. As each item is prepared, the food preparer enters a display symbol to signify its completion. Upon completion of all items in a food order, the microprocessor system erases the order from the CRT. A separate CRT may be connected to the microprocessor system for use by a food expediter. As each order is completed by the food preparers, the order is visually displayed on the expediter CRT thereby alerting the food expediter to collect the items of an order in the kitchen so that they may be picked up by a waiter.
