  • Publication number: 20200094433
    Abstract: An attachable rolling plate assembly which is attached as a single unit to a portable cutting tool to facilitate the safe rolling movement of the portable cutting tool on a workpiece. The invention comprises a frame assembly formed from a single piece of molded material such as fiber enriched high-impact nylon having a pair of oppositely disposed longitudinal sidewalls and a flat base portion having an opening through which a saw blade of a power saw extends. The invention also includes a cutting guide assembly to facilitate a straight cut, reduce torsional rotation of the saw blade and reduce kickback of the saw. A water spray hose is retained to spray water in front of a saw blade of a retained worm drive power saw.

  • Patent number: 8877505
    Abstract: Embodiments of a composition for stabilizing fluorescent signal of nanoparticles and methods for its use are disclosed. In some embodiments, the composition has a pH from 7 to 10 and includes borate, protein and/or protein hydrolysate, an amine, a preservative, and a nonionic surfactant. In particular embodiments, the amine is an N-ethanol substituted amine, such as ethanolamine, diethanolamine, triethanolamine, N-methyldiethanolamine, N,N-dimethylethanolamine, or a combination thereof. In some embodiments, a fluorescent particle solution, such as a quantum dot solution or quantum dot conjugate solution, is diluted in the composition and stored at 4° C. In certain embodiments, the fluorescence intensity of the diluted fluorescent particle remains substantially the same when stored at 4° C. for at least one month or at least three months. In particular embodiments, a diluted quantum dot conjugate is used to detect a hybridized probe or a protein antigen.

  • Patent number: 7695448
    Abstract: An intravenous flow control system provides closed loop control to maintain a desired flow rate. The actual flow rate is determined by two techniques, a geometrically based technique that uses geometric parameters of the IV system, and a thermally based technique that uses the power input to an IV fluid warmer and the temperature of the IV fluid entering and exiting the warmer.
