  • Publication number: 20220354376
    Abstract: The invention describes a measuring system for the continuous non-invasive determination of blood pressure at one or more fingers. The fingers chosen for measurement and the adjacent parts of the palm rest on a supporting surface of a housing, which has the shape of a computer mouse. Inside the housing of the “CNAP Mouse”, i.e. underneath the supporting surface for the hand, the pressure generating system is located. The finger sensors are mounted on the supporting surface for the hand. The forearm and the back of the hand are left free and may be used to place intra-venous or intra-arterial access elements. Since the hand will rest on the supporting surface motion artefacts are largely avoided. Tilting or turning of the sensors is hardly possible since the fit of the sensors and thus the coupling of light and pressure are optimized.

  • Publication number: 20220330828
    Abstract: A system for measuring the presence and/or the concentration of an analysis substance dissolved in a bodily fluid includes a light source configured to emit an excitation light, a detection device, and an optical device defining an excitation beam path of the excitation light from the light source to a measurement region of a sample and defining a detection beam path of a detection light from the measurement region of the sample to the detection device. The detection device is configured to detect the detection light and comprises a light-sensitive sensor and at least one filter element disposed in the detection beam path. The at least one filter element being configured to suppress a transmission of light with wavelengths outside of a specified analysis wavelength range about a selected IR absorption band that is specified as being characteristic for the analysis substance.

  • Patent number: 11370063
    Abstract: A method for encoding a plate-like workpiece comprising: defining an encoding area; applying a magnetic layer to the surface of the workpiece; fusing parts of the magnetic layer to the surface of the workpiece by acting on the workpiece with radiation within the encoding area; cooling the workpiece; removing the non-fused parts of the magnetic layer. The method permits the workpieces to be trackable in a simple manner, irrespective of surface treatments that may possibly be carried out or are to be carried out later.

  • Publication number: 20220133185
    Abstract: A system for measuring the presence and/or the concentration of an analysis substance dissolved in a bodily fluid includes a light source configured to emit excitation light and an optical device. The optical device defines, for the excitation light, an excitation beam path from the light source to a measurement region of a sample and, for scattered light from the measurement region of the sample, a detection beam path from the measurement region of the sample to a detection device. The system also includes a detection device configured to detect the scattered light. The detection device includes a light-sensitive sensor and a filter element arranged in the detection beam path, the filter element being designed to suppress a transmission of light with wavelengths outside of an analysis wavelength range around a Raman resonance of the analysis substance.

  • Publication number: 20220118090
    Abstract: A method and a device for treating particles and nanoparticles in a suspension. A liquid jet is generated in which the particles are entrained. The liquid jet is irradiated with at least two laser beams, preferably pulsed beams, from mutually different directions. The particles are thereby comminuted. The suspension is analyzed before and/or after the irradiation. The liquid of the liquid jet is then collected in a collection vessel.

  • Patent number: 11113489
    Abstract: Methods and devices for coding and identifying plate-type workpieces are provided. The methods include: coding a workpiece by producing a code with a local modification in a material structure of a base material of the workpiece within a coding region, reading out the code by performing an eddy-current measurement of a local distribution of an electrical conductivity and/or a permeability of the base material by an eddy-current sensor along a reading-out section in a reading region at least partially including the coding region, a signal calibrated to a distance of the eddy-current sensor from a surface of the reading region being determined for reading out the code, storing the read-out code in a storage device, repeating the reading out of the code by repeatedly performing the eddy-current measurement, and identifying the workpiece by comparing the stored read-out code in the storage device and the repeated read-out code.
