  • Publication number: 20180346207
    Abstract: A preload mechanism for a memory alloy wire actuator is disclosed that includes a rotating element configured to rotate about a pivot. The rotating element has a first contact point that is configured to couple to the memory alloy wire actuator such that contraction of the memory alloy wire actuator displaces the first contact point such that the rotating element rotates from a first position to a second position. The preload mechanism also includes a bias element with a first end that is coupled to a second contact point of the rotating element and a second end configured to be pinned relative to the pivot. The bias element has a line of action extending from the second end through the first end. The line of action has an offset distance that is the minimum distance between the line of action and the pivot.

  • Patent number: 7608705
    Abstract: The invention relates to particular oligonucleotides, pharmaceutical agents that contain these oligonucleotides, and to the therapeutic use thereof. The oligonucleotides are, in particular, capable of inhibiting the proliferation of pancreatic tumors. These oligonucleotides thus have a therapeutic potential for the treatment of pancreatic tumors. This can involve, in the broadest sense, an antisense therapy.

  • Publication number: 20030087436
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for producing biologically active polymer nanoparticle-nucleic acid conjugates by polymerizing vinyl monomer with a low-water solubility in an aqueous solution, then reacting the resulting polymer suspensions with the nucleic acids. The process is characterized in that the vinyl monomers are emulsion polymerized in the presence of cationic radical starters but in the absence of any emulsifier. The thus obtained polymer nanoparticle-nucleic acid conjugates are sufficiently stable in biological media and are characterized by a high transport efficiency through cellular membranes.

  • Patent number: 6447764
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for isolating anionic organic substances from aqueous systems using polymer nanoparticles with cationic pH-sensitive surface groups. Extraction can be carried out directly from diluted solutions, biological media (blood plasma, serum, urine, etc.) and complex buffer systems (e.g. PCR preparations contain detergents) without prior derivatization of the samples or addition of binding buffers. After separation from the surrounding medium the conjugates of the corresponding substances and polymer nanoparticles obtained in this manner can be purified through additional washing steps and effectively desalinated. Owing to the pH-sensitivity of the basic surface groups, the bound substances can be released in a targeted manner after separation by modification of the pH of the medium. By using volatile bases contamination of the released samples with ionic residues can be avoided.

  • Patent number: 5319620
    Abstract: A pocket dictation machine (1), which is held in one hand in its dictation-recording mode and whose functions required in this mode can be started by a control member (23, 25), can also be operated in a second mode for the transcription of dictations, in which the functions required for this second mode can be started by remote control by a suitable control device (29) instead of by the control member.

  • Patent number: 5292814
    Abstract: The invention concerns a process for the preparation of monodispersed polymer beads, wherein in a first stage a seed polymer is prepared in an organic solvent and in the presence of an R--X compound, separated and in a second stage an emulsion polymerization is carried out in an aqueous medium in the presence of the seed polymer. The polymer beads obtained in this manner have diameters in the range of 0.5 to 50 .mu.m, and may be used in the immobilization of proteins and cells, as carriers of catalysts and in peptide synthesis and in chromatography.
