  • Publication number: 20200201259
    Abstract: A bearing for an arbor or staff of a rotary wheel set of a timepiece movement, the bearing including a bearing block provided with a housing and an endstone arranged inside the housing, the endstone having a main body provided with a cavity configured to receive a pivot of the arbor of the rotary wheel set, the pivot having the shape of a first cone having a first solid angle, the apex of the first cone being rounded with a predefined first radius of curvature in a range from 0.2 ?m to 50 ?m, the cavity having a second cone shape with a second solid angle, greater than the first solid angle, so that the pivot can rotate in the cavity, the apex of the second cone being rounded and having a predefined second radius of curvature. The second radius of curvature is smaller than the first radius of curvature.

  • Publication number: 20190330579
    Abstract: A cell culturing system includes a docking station, a handling unit, a culturing module and an actuation layer. The culturing module has a culturing well and a culturing membrane separating the culturing well in an apical culturing chamber and a basal culturing chamber. The handling unit removably accommodates the culturing module and the actuation layer. The docking station has a coupling structure for removably holding the handling unit in a predefined position and an actuation feeding channel, wherein, when the handling unit is held by the coupling structure in the predefined position, a first end of the actuation feeding channel is connected to the actuation bore and a second end of the actuation feeding channel is connected to a connector.

  • Patent number: 10022089
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device and a method for noninvasive measurement of parameters of a bodily tissue, the measuring device having a sensor unit and a sensor mat for detachable placement of the device on a body surface. The sensor unit (1) has a receptacle (6), the interior of which accommodates a sensor arrangement, wherein the receptacle (6) has a sensor surface (15) in the direction of the body surface. The sensor mat (8) has a cutout (11) for accommodating the sensor unit (1) and a contact surface (14), at least partially surrounding the sensor unit (1), for placement on the body surface (9). A cover (12) is provided for closing the cutout (11) over an upper side of the sensor unit (1) and the sensor mat (8) during a measurement of parameters. The sensor unit (1), the sensor mat (8) and the cover (12) are detachable from one another.
