  • Publication number: 20200271589
    Abstract: A portable device for detecting an analyte associated with a target organic molecule in a liquid and/or solid substance. The device includes a test chamber, a probe, and a sensor. The test chamber contains a liquid volume of test solution including an analytical reagent selected to react with the analyte. The test chamber is sealed by a pierceable membrane wall. The probe is removably positionable to pierce the membrane wall to deposit a sample in the test chamber to form a test mixture with the test solution. The sensor is positioned to detect one or more characteristics of the test mixture in the test chamber indicative of a reaction between the analyte and the analytical reagent.

  • Patent number: 6006562
    Abstract: A collective holder, in particular for keys, having a holder housing (1) of flat configuration with a cornerless outline whose circumferential narrow side wall forms a running rail (2) with a removal opening, operable by a grip from a broad side wall, for runners (3) captured in the running rail (2). The collective holder provides an outline contour deviating from the circular and has two opposite, approximately semicircular arc segments (A, B) whose apexes (A', B') are spaced apart by approximately the width of two fingers, and whose broad side wall opposite the grip accommodates a luminaire (incandescent lamp 17) which points in the direction of the apex (A'), shines over the movement path of the runners (3) and can be activated by a pushbutton (24) arranged on the broad side wall.

  • Patent number: 5181406
    Abstract: A locking device consisting of key (2) and locking cylinder (1), in particular for the actuation of electric microswitches on keyboards, telephone or the like, has a locking cylinder housing (5) and a cylinder core (11) arranged for rotation in the bore thereof and cooperating with tumblers (16). The key (2), which has a stepped-down key shaft (35) is insertable into the cylinder core which has a head plate (12), coming after a specific rotation to rest against stops of the locking cylinder housing (5). In order to obtain a simplified construction with increased security and small structural length, there is a free space between the head plate (12) of the cylinder core (11) arranged on the front side of the locking cylinder (1) and the head end (14) of the locking cylinder housing (5). Into the free space the key-shaft shoulder (37) enters, and one or more stops of the locking cylinder housing (5), are arranged at different distances from an axis of rotation of the core.

  • Patent number: 4884422
    Abstract: The device comprises a sleeve (10,10') which serves to cover the polygonal head (4) of a wheel nut or bolt. The sleeve supports a lock cylinder (18) from which a locking member (28,36) projects for co-operating with a radial shoulder (6,6') formed in the head (4). The locking member (28,36) is retracted by means of a key (24) rotating the cylinder plug (20,20'). The sleeve (10,10') can be pushed on to the head (4) without using the key (24). The locking member (28,36) may be constituted by a latch (28) or annular spring (36).
