  • Patent number: 7802342
    Abstract: An acoustic ceiling removal tool and associated method are provided wherein an elongated tubular handle defines a longitudinal cavity, and a scraping head is connected to a distal end of the handle. The scraping head has a manifold with a proximal end in fluid communication with the longitudinal cavity and an opposing open end defining a comparatively larger cross sectional area than the proximal end, a scraper blade supported by the manifold to dispose an operative scraping edge of the scraper blade adjacent the open end of the manifold, and an elastomeric boot sealingly engaging the proximal end of the manifold and extending therefrom to circumscribe the open end of the manifold.

  • Publication number: 20090240208
    Abstract: A syringe having two or more chambers having a needle defining two or more lumens for injecting a microparticle suspension into a desired space, the lumens being in fluid communication with respective chambers. One of the chambers has the microparticle suspension disposed therein while the other chamber is empty. The lumen in fluid communication with the empty chamber has a filter element disposed therein such that the suspension fluid may be withdrawn from the space into the empty chamber without withdrawing the microparticles.
