  • Publication number: 20190218424
    Abstract: The disclosure discloses an adhesive tape cartridge including an adhesive tape roll. The adhesive tape roll winds an adhesive tape around a predetermined axis in a housing. The adhesive tape includes a base layer, and a first particle-containing adhesive layer. The first particle-containing adhesive layer is disposed on first side of the base layer in a thickness direction and comprises an adhesive to which particles having an average particle diameter of 10 ?m or more are added. On condition that the first particle-containing adhesive layer is virtually divided into two equal parts as a first region on the first side in the thickness direction and an second region on an second side in the thickness direction, a volume proportion of the particles to the adhesive in the second region is larger than a volume proportion of the particles to the adhesive in the first region.

  • Publication number: 20190105874
    Abstract: The disclosure discloses a tape roll that winds a tape with a minimum radius R. The tape before being wound includes a flexible material layer. The flexible material layer includes flat plate-shaped reflectors inside and having a thickness T. On condition that a flexural modulus of the reflectors is G, a bending strength of the reflectors is A, and an average particle diameter of the reflectors is 2L, the reflectors satisfy the following relationships R/L{1?cos(L/R)}<A/G, and 2L>T.

  • Patent number: 9199235
    Abstract: A test chip includes a substrate, a lid member, a separation portion, a first flow path, and a first holding portion. The substrate includes a surface on which a flow path is formed. The lid member covers the surface of the substrate. By centrifugal force, the separation portion separates components of a test object liquid into a separated component and a residual component having a larger specific gravity than a specific gravity of the separated component. The first flow path guides the separated component from the separation portion to a receiving portion. The first holding portion holds at least part of the residual component overflowing from the separation portion in a case where the separated component separated in the separation portion is moved from the separation portion to the receiving portion. The first holding portion is connected to at least one of the separation portion and the first flow path.

  • Patent number: 7790468
    Abstract: A test object receptacle, capable of measuring a test object in a wide range of concentrations with good accuracy and within a short time, contains a plurality of fine protruding portions inside grooves. The test object receptacle can fix antigens, antibodies and test objects faster than without the protruding portions. Furthermore, the protruding portions are so formed that the surface area thereof increases gradually to the downstream with respect to the movement direction of the test object in the grooves, the detection intensity (intensity of color development) of the test object is not saturated downstream of the grooves even when the test object has a high concentration. For this reason, the test object can be detected within a short time and the measurements can be conducted within a wide concentration range.

  • Publication number: 20080220228
    Abstract: The present invention provides an electrophoretic display medium including a first substrate and a second substrate disposed in opposition to each other, a dispersion medium provided between the first substrate and the second substrate with charged particles dispersed therein, and partitioning parts partitioning a space between the first substrate and the second substrate. The manufacturing method includes an electrode-forming step, a die-pressing step and a die-removing step, through which partitioning parts and the substrate are integrally formed by thermal imprint.

  • Publication number: 20080198443
    Abstract: An electrophoretic display medium includes a first substrate and a second substrate disposed in opposition to each other, a dispersion medium injected between the first substrate and second substrate and having charged particles dispersed therein, and a partition member that partitions a space between the first substrate and the second substrate. A manufacturing method includes a clamping step for clamping the surface of a first die having a partition-forming groove pattern to form the partition member against the first substrate, an injecting step for injecting a resin into spaces formed between the first die and the first substrate, and a molding step for solidifying the resin injected into the spaces.
