  • Publication number: 20200277217
    Abstract: In known methods for producing a glass component, a void-containing intermediate product containing doped or non-doped SiO2 is inserted into a sheath tube composed of glass, which has a longitudinal axis and an inner bore, and is thermally treated therein. In order to subject the intermediate product to a thermal and/or reactive treatment that is reproducible and uniform in its effect from this starting point, it is proposed in one embodiment that into the sheath tube's inner bore a first gas-permeable gas diffuser is inserted which is displaceable along the sheath tube's longitudinal axis and is pressed against the intermediate product during the thermal treatment.

  • Publication number: 20200207874
    Abstract: Herein is reported a polypeptide-polynucleotide-complex as therapeutic agent and its use as tool for the targeted delivery of an effector moiety. The polynucleotide part of the complex is essentially resistant to proteolytic and enzymatic degradation in vivo. Additionally the polypeptide part specifically binds to a compound or structure such as a tissue or organ, a process or a disease. Thus, one aspect as reported herein is a polypeptide-polynucleotide-complex comprising a) a polypeptide specifically binding to a target and conjugated to a first member of a binding pair, b) a polynucleotide linker conjugated at its first terminus to the second member of the binding pair, and c) an effector moiety conjugated to a polynucleotide that is complementary to at least a part of the polynucleotide linker.

  • Patent number: 10481578
    Abstract: A drivetrain for linear movement of a machine component along a linear guide of a machine includes a motor with a motor-measuring system. A length-measuring system is assigned to the linear guide for determining a position of the machine component. To determine rigidity of the drivetrain, a constant acceleration for the machine component is predetermined by a numerical controller for performing closed-loop control of the movement of the machine component. The numerical controller determines a difference between a position of the machine component derived from the motor-measuring system and a position of the machine component measured at the same time by the length-measuring system during the acceleration phase, and the difference is assigned to the acceleration or to a force required for the acceleration and storage in the numerical controller of the pair of values established in this way and/or of a rigidity value emanating from the pair of values.
