  • Publication number: 20050102185
    Abstract: An on-line multi-channel workflow processing system (10) for managing and monitoring the progression of a complex multi-event and multi-user process is described. The system operates over standard Internet protocols and is accessible via the Internet (16) and includes a data capturing engine for capturing events requested by a first user, the data capturing engine being arranged for each event to create and store an event record (160). The system (10) also includes means for implementing at least some of the events automatically (44) and means (32) for listing the event record (160) of each event which requires manual interaction for completion and which has yet to be completed. The system (10) further includes means for updating the event record (160) when a second user has manually progressed the event towards completion.

  • Patent number: 5229103
    Abstract: There are provided shelf stable liquid concentrates for dilution to form dental rinse compositions for loosening and removing plaque present on dental surfaces, while reducing the level of plaque forming bacteria present in the oral cavity consisting essentially of an aqueous or an aqueous and alcoholic carrier for the ingredients of said concentrate, wherein the ingredients include about 0.1% to about 10% by weight of said concentrate of an oral surfactant, suitably an anionic surfactant, at least about 1% by weight of said concentrate of sodium benzoate, and sufficient pharmaceutically acceptable acid to maintain the pH of said concentrate in the range of about 6.2 to about 5.6. These concentrates, in order to be used, are diluted to form dental rinse compositions, with water, in the ratio of between about 1 to about 15 parts by weight of water to 1 part by weight of concentrate, resulting in a pH in the range of about 6.0 to about 4.7.

  • Patent number: 4126561
    Abstract: Composition for imparting desirable properties to fabrics or clothes comprising a water-soluble or dispersible adhesive such as a gum or polymeric resin, a fine, water-insoluble particulate and at least one adjuvant capable of imparting desirable properties to the fabrics or clothes such as a fabric softener, for example. The composition is quickly disintegrable upon heat and moisture to release the adjuvant on the fabrics or clothes while leaving substantially no residue of gum thereon or in the surrounding environment, such as a clothes dryer. It can be foamed or unfoamed condition but is preferably foamed and made by mixing the constituents, that is, the gum particulate and adjuvant, and then whipping the mixture where a foam is desired and subsequently drying the mixture to form the composition.
