  • Patent number: 9694944
    Abstract: A dispenser for viscous foods like condiments, batter and syrups employs a flexible plastic bag made of a flexible plastic material. The dispenser includes a cylinder having an annulus and defining an open interior. The cylinder receives the flexible plastic bag within the open interior. The cylinder includes a threaded nozzle that extends away from the open interior. A dispensing cap threadingly engages the threaded nozzle and includes a hollow tube and at least one knife edge which extends past the annulus into the open interior.

  • Patent number: 9174236
    Abstract: A dispenser for viscous, extrudable materials uses a sprocket-driven push chain that is drawn from a chain magazine responsive to actuation of a user trigger. The sprocket for the chain is driven by a toothed wheel, which is driven by a first, ratcheting drive pawl, which is actuated by the trigger. A second ratcheting locking pawl prevents the toothed wheel and hence the chain sprocket from rotating backward when the trigger is released. A single “button” or actuator can be actuated by one hand of a user while the user's other hand grasps a chain retractor to pull an extended chain back to a starting position whereat the dispenser can be reloaded.

  • Publication number: 20140000626
    Abstract: This invention relates to medical breathing tubes comprising a tubular body, the body defining a lumen extending between open terminal ends of the body and an internal form enclosed within the lumen and supportive of the tubular body. The internal form may be of a coated encapsulated internal form, the coating securing the internal form to the tubular body. The internal form may also or separately provide for a series of alternative crests and troughs (e.g. corrugations) of the tubular body. Patient interfaces (such as masks or nasal cannula) can be connected to such tubing. A system for securing patient interfaces in an operational position may also be utilised.

  • Patent number: 8181827
    Abstract: Fixed amounts of granular and granulated seasonings are dispensed from a rotatable disc that lies flat or horizontal and which includes a through-hole or void. The void is gravity-filled with granulated seasonings from a hole in the bottom of a hopper. A screen below the disc is formed to have open, through-holes and a solid land. The void in the disc fills with granules when the void is beneath a hole in the hopper but over a solid land thus preventing granules to spill through the disc. Rotation of the disc moves the void away from the land, allowing granules in the void to fall through holes in the screen. A gasket provides a seal between the disc and the hopper. The disc is rotated back and forth around its axis by vertical movement of an actuator about the horizontal hinge.

  • Publication number: 20110114618
    Abstract: Bezels or escutcheons for a temperature-controlled food holding cabinet are removable and field replaceable by the use of interlocking tabs and detents that hold the escutcheon in place and align the escutcheon to electrical connectors. A tab formed on either the escutcheon or chassis of the cabinet, engages a corresponding detent formed on either the cabinet chassis or the escutcheon. Two tabs and detents are preferably used. One tab engages a corresponding detent with an interference fit.

  • Publication number: 20090105610
    Abstract: A cell collector and cell collection method are provided for collecting clusters of cells for subsequent analysis of the cells to screen for abnormalities. The cell collector is designed to enhance the capability of the collector to pick-up clusters or clumps of cells, and to facilitate transfer of the collected clusters of cells onto a receiving structure, for example a slide. In one embodiment, a combination of the material of the collector, the texture of the collection surface of the collector, and the use of expansion and rotation of the collector during collection facilitate the collection of the clusters of cells.

  • Publication number: 20090060168
    Abstract: A network interface device (NID) and associated printed circuit board is provided that includes metallic die cast housing and doors configured so that one of the doors, when closed, physically separates service provider circuitry from the customer premise equipment (CPE) side connections on a circuit card within the NID so that an end-customer may access the CPE side connections while the service provider circuitry remains secured from end-customer access. Moreover, the metallic housing provides increased physical strength and tamper resistance, including improved heat dissipation properties to radiate internal heat build-up more efficiently. The NID may be configured to provide insertable interface cards to permit flexibility in service provisioning and includes options for a type-200 T1 module, a type-400 T1 module, a type-200 high bit rate Digital Subscriber Line (HDSL) module, a type-400 HDSL module or an ISDN module.

  • Publication number: 20090017474
    Abstract: Systems and methods of interrogating clusters of cells for two or more biological markers that do not, or rarely, occur in the same cell during normal cellular growth, development and function, to indicate the existence of cells that are part of a local area where a pre-neoplastic or neoplastic lesion may be present. The relationship among cells is maintained while interrogating the clusters of cells to facilitate the examination and determination of the existence of possible dysplasia.
