  • Patent number: 11938706
    Abstract: The utility model discloses a non-adhesive detachable protective film, including the film body attached to the screen. The aforesaid film body has a soft resin layer fixed on the inner border; in which, the soft resin layer is set in strips along the edge of the border of the film body, forming a frame-sticking structure. Between the aforesaid soft resin layer and the film body, there is an adhesive layer for bonding and fixing; in which, the former one is pressed against the screen surface under pressure extrusion, forming a pressure-attached fixing structure with the screen surface. The utility model uses soft resin layer that allows the film body to be attach to the screen by extrusion, without using adhesive film. Besides, the film surface will not stick to dust when it is attached and removed in high frequency, and the fitting effect will not be reduced by repeated use.

  • Patent number: 11912008
    Abstract: Disclosed are films and a packaging for gas or vapor decontaminable packaging applications and a method for creating a sterile packaging using the same. These films are particularly useful for sterile storage and transport of objects for medical, pharmaceutical or cosmetic uses, in particular of sterile pharmaceutical primary packaging means, like vials, ampules, syringes, or cartridges. Said film comprises at least a layer of a selectively permeable non-woven, a layer of a punctured film, and an adhesive which can be activated by energy transmission. Optionally it comprises further film layers. The method for creating a sterile packaging comprises the step of hermetically closing the packaging by activating the adhesive thereby making the non-woven impermeable.

  • Patent number: 11911999
    Abstract: Fluorescence-based techniques are the cornerstone of modern biomedical optics with applications ranging from bioimaging at various scales (organelle to organism) to detection and quantification of a wide variety of biological species of interest. However, feeble fluorescence signal remains a persistent challenge in meeting the ever-increasing demand to image, detect and quantify biological species of low abundance. Disclosed herein are simple and universal methods based on a flexible and conformal elastomeric film adsorbed with plasmonic nanostructures, referred to as “plasmonic skin” or “plasmonic patch”, that provide large and uniform enhancement of fluorescence on a variety of surfaces, through an “add-on-top” process.
