Alfons-Alois Schwinghammer has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20200359952
    Abstract: A whole blood filtration device is provided with a filter membrane separating a feeding volume and a clean side of the filter membrane from each other. The feeding volume communicates with a first feeding side opening and with a second feeding side opening. The filter membrane has pores with a pore size that ensures permeability of the filter membrane to blood plasma/serum and that retains blood cells. The first feeding side opening can be coupled to a first blood pump for feeding blood from the first feeding side opening into the feeding volume so that blood plasma/serum permeates the filter membrane and blood cells, retained by the filter membrane, exit from the feeding volume through the second feeding side opening.

  • Patent number: 10561781
    Abstract: A blood filtering device has a filtration section with filter medium separating raw side and clean side. A first communication path connects raw side and a first variable blood reservoir volume; a second communication path connects raw side and a second variable blood reservoir volume coupled to a receptacle. When varying the first variable blood reservoir volume, blood contained therein flows through first communication path to raw side, plasma/serum passes through the filter medium from raw side to clean side, and residual blood flows from raw side through second communication path into the second variable blood reservoir volume. When varying the second variable blood reservoir volume, blood contained therein flows through second communication path to raw side, plasma/serum passes through the filter medium from raw side to clean side, and residual blood flows from raw side through first communication path into first variable blood reservoir volume.

  • Patent number: 10143950
    Abstract: A filter (10) for liquid has a filter housing (14) with at least one hollow filter element (12). The filter element at least partially surrounded by a liquid guidance region (54). At least one additive chamber (50) of an additive dispensing device (38) is disposed on the side of the liquid guidance region (54) opposite the corresponding exterior side of the hollow filter element (12) by means of at least one partition (42). The at least one partition has at least one dispensing port (52) by means of which the at least one additive chamber (50) can be fluidically connected to the liquid guidance region (54). The at least one dispensing port (52) is closed with at least one closure element (58) at least in the original condition of the additive dispensing device (38), this closure element being dissolvable by the liquid to be treated to release the at least one first dispensing port (52) during operation of the filter (10).
