  • Publication number: 20210356243
    Abstract: The present invention is a pyrotechnic time delay system that is improved over prior-art designs. Specifically, the system described herein comprises at least one delay element. The delay element or delay elements each have an input charge, a delay composition, and an output charge. Both the input charge and the output charge are igniter compositions and are comprised of the same components despite having different functional goals. The input charge and output charge compositions preferably contain titanium, manganese dioxide, and polytetrafluoroethylene. The delay composition may be modified from current formulations to include manganese and manganese dioxide, or tungsten and manganese dioxide. The system disclosed herein may be comprised of one delay element, or it may be modular wherein multiple delay elements are connected in series.

  • Patent number: 8421019
    Abstract: A method and a corresponding system for obtaining a serum mid-infrared spectroscopic profile using Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) are described. The method comprises acquiring FTIR spectra for dried sera and preprocessing the FTIR spectra of sera by differentiation and smoothing to enhance weak spectral features and to remove baseline variations. The preprocessed FTIR spectra are normalized to a common intensity range, the normalization being performed in a spectral sub-region defined by strongest infrared (IR) absorption for a protein to obtain the serum spectroscopic profile. The serum spectroscopic profiles provide a basis to diagnose immunoglobulin disorders or to quantify serum immunoglobulin levels.

  • Publication number: 20130000687
    Abstract: A hand-operated stick device includes a gripping portion, a working member and an elongated shaft with opposite ends connecting the gripping portion and the working member. The shaft has a wall thickness and at least three ribs projected from an inner side of the shaft. The ribs extend from an end of the shaft adjacent to the gripping portion to the other end adjacent to the working member. The ribs have a width and a height both of which are greater than or equal to the wall thickness. Therefore, it may increase the strength of structure and provide a safe use.

  • Publication number: 20120225758
    Abstract: A rotary dumbbell of the present invention includes a handle, and two pairs of wheels and weight devices pivoted on opposite ends of the handle for rotation. Each of the wheels has a center pivoted on the handle and is unadjustable in a radial direction thereof that the wheels centrally rotate. Each of the weight devices is adjustable in a radial direction thereof that the weight devices may eccentrically rotate. The dumbbell further includes two pairs of covers to hold the weight devices and the wheels respectively. Therefore, user may get an extra loading because of the eccentric rotation of the weight devices when he/she shakes the dumbbell. The dumbbell may be used as a roller to train abdominal muscles while the wheels serve the function of rollers.

  • Patent number: 8124415
    Abstract: The discovery that apolipoprotein B exhibits spectral features in the mid IR spectrum that make it identifiable within blood serum leads to the invented use of a statistical correlation between a concentration of apolipoprotein-B (apoB) in a sample of blood serum and infrared spectral features of the blood serum sample to produce a test for apoB. A method for providing such a test, and tests produced by the method are taught.

  • Publication number: 20110131496
    Abstract: A method of selecting content to form a content presentation, the presentation comprising an ordered sequence of selected amounts of content, there being a plurality of items of content available for the presentation, the method comprising: (a) for each of the items of content, determining an associated weight-value based, at least in part, on one or more parameters for the presentation; (b) performing a weighted selection of one of the items of content, the selection being weighted in accordance with the weight-values associated with the items of content; (c) selecting at least a part of the content of the selected item of content to be one of the amounts of content in the ordered sequence of selected amounts of content; and (d) repeating steps (a), (b) and (c) until the presentation is complete.

  • Patent number: 7754490
    Abstract: A number of reagent-free infrared spectroscopic diagnostic and analytical methods have been established previously, making use of dry biofluid films. For example, this approach has successfully measured high concentration analytes of serum and urine. However, a number of low concentration diagnostically relevant analytes presently elude detection by infrared spectroscopy. This is due in part to their relatively low concentration and in part to spectral interference by other strongly absorbing constituents. The applicability of the technique would be broadened substantially if it were possible to separate and concentrate, lower concentration analytes, e.g. serum creatinine and urine proteins, from the obscuring presence of relatively high concentration compounds. The invention disclosed achieves this is through microfluidic sample preconditioning based upon laminar fluid diffusion interfaces.

  • Publication number: 20100021125
    Abstract: An apparatus is described for polymorphic presentation ot pre-recorded motion picture content. The recorded content (DVD DISC) comprises individual segments ((1,0) (2,0) etc,}, and the apparatus comprises sequencing means (SEQ GEN etc) for defining a presentation sequence (Xp) of a subset of the segments and for causing the segments to be presented in accordance with the defined presentation sequence. The sequencing means is operable to generate said sequence by selecting and adding segments to a sequence already partly defined, using (i) randomised values and (ii) predetermined rules specifying compatibility between the segments already included in the sequence and segments which are candidates for adding to the sequence. Editing and content capture apparatuses are disclosed, in which a matrix presentation is used to organise content segments. Recorded segments can be grouped in X, Y etc. dimensions and sequences made by varying ‘character’ parameters (Y etc.) as well as timeline position (X).
