  • Patent number: 10384803
    Abstract: Lighting components for illuminating an aisle portion of a cabin floor of an aircraft, and aircraft and passenger seats for an aircraft including the same are disclosed. Said lighting components are configured to illuminate at least a portion of the aisle, between adjacent passenger seats positioned on either side of the aisle. The lighting components are configured to direct light towards the cabin floor using a specially designed housing and reflector surface that are designed to illuminate objects in the aisle, while minimizing light pollution in the cabin and detection by passengers on board the aircraft. Said lighting components are optionally mounted on one or more passenger seats, and/or may be integrally formed with a passenger seat. Lighting components include a curved reflector surface configured to reflect light from a light source positioned within the housing such that it is directed towards the aisle to create the desired illumination.

  • Patent number: 5563040
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for detecting incipient fungal decay in wood is described. Anti-xylanase monoclonal antibody is immobilized in a defined capture zone to a polyester assay substrate. Anti-hemicellulase polyclonal-labeled latex particles (carrier zone) are applied at a position distant from the capture zone. Wood extract to be tested is applied to the end of the polyester substrate and allowed to flow laterally through the carrier zone and the capture zone. A positive test results when antigen in the wood extract is complexed by the labeled polyclonal and monoclonal antibodies to form an observable particle complex.
