  • Patent number: 11351792
    Abstract: A liquid cartridge configured to be inserted into a cartridge-attachment section in an insertion direction includes a casing, and a lever supported by the casing. The lever is pivotable about a pivot axis between a first position and a second position. The lever includes a light-blocking portion configured to block or attenuate light traveling in a widthwise direction crossing the insertion direction and a gravitational direction, and a force-receiving portion positioned closer to a front wall of the casing than the light-blocking portion is to the front wall in the insertion direction. The light-blocking portion is positioned lower at the second position than at the first position. The pivot axis is positioned frontward of the light-blocking portion and rearward of the force-receiving portion in the insertion direction. The lever pivots from the second position to the first position upon application of an external force to the force-receiving portion.

  • Patent number: 10407583
    Abstract: A precise, quick mark showing a surgical operation site is allowed to put on a marking target irrespective of the skin or a surgical drape attached onto the skin in surgical operation. An ink for a surgical marker is made of isopropyl alcohol as a solvent, polyvinyl pyrrolidone involved in film formation, and methylrosanilinium chloride as a pigment, and, in particular, the content of the polyvinyl pyrrolidone is set to be greater than or equal to 2% but smaller than or equal to 12%. The composition described above allows the ink to be smoothly discharged and a film containing the pigment to be quickly formed and adhered as the ink dries. A mark can therefore be put in a precise, quick manner irrespective of a marking target, the skin or a surgical drape attached onto the skin.
