  • Publication number: 20210127654
    Abstract: A fishing rod includes a rod section and a fitting having a securing portion, the fitting being firmly secured to the rod section without inhibiting bending of the rod section, the securing portion having an excellent outer appearance. On a securing portion of a fishing line guide placed on the rod section, a prepreg sheet formed of plain-woven reinforcement fibers impregnated with a thermosetting resin is wound to secure the fishing line guide. The prepreg sheet is wound and secured so that, with respect to an axial direction, reinforcement fibers are in oblique directions, and intersecting angles of the reinforcement fibers in a winding region on a part of the rod section located beyond a distal end of the securing portion are smaller than those of the reinforcement fibers in a winding region on the securing portion.

  • Patent number: 10874473
    Abstract: To provide a container for a medical device, which enables easy removal of wrapping, thereby significantly reducing the labor for unpacking at the delivery destination such as a pharmaceutical company or a medical institution. Furthermore, the provided container for the medical device enables easy removal of wrapping even during an automated process in a filling machine for medical solutions, for example. In this container for a medical device, a holder holding at least one medical device is placed inside a container body having an opening at the top, and the opening is sealed with a gas-impermeable film. When sterilizing the exterior of the container using a sterilization gas, the sterilization gas does not permeate into the container due to the gas-impermeable film, so the medical device and the holder thereof placed inside the container are never exposed to the gas.

  • Patent number: 10099823
    Abstract: There is provided a vial cap with which, when there is a possibility that a cover which covers a stopper for a vial has come off and the stopper for the vial has been contaminated at a stage prior to use, the fact can easily be recognized. The vial cap is a resin vial cap (1) to be attached to a mouth portion (72) of a vial (70) to fix a stopper (74) fitted into the mouth portion (72) so that the stopper may not come off the mouth portion (72). The vial cap (1) is provided with a cap main body (8) that has an upper opening (6) formed therein and a cover (40) that covers the upper opening (6) of the cap main body (8). The cap main body (8) has a plurality of pin-receiving holes (10) formed therein, and the cover (40) has a plurality of fixing pins (46). Each pin-receiving hole (10) and a fixing pin (46) that is paired with the pin-receiving hole (10) are formed in complementary shapes.

  • Patent number: 9561329
    Abstract: Disclosed are a piston for a micro-volume syringe and a plunger. The micro-volume syringe has a syringe barrel with a space defined in it. The piston is slidable on and along a wall of the space. A leading member to be arranged on a side where the piston comes into contact with a solution filled in the space and a trailing member to be arranged on a side where a plunger rod is to be connected, the latter side being opposite to a solution side of the leading member, have been integrated with each other. The trailing member has a higher hardness than the leading member. With the micro-volume syringe in which a drug solution can be filled in a very small quantity, the piston makes it possible to perform smooth drawing and ejection of the drug solution without leakage. Even if the small piston connected to a tip of the plunger rod is operated in a direction that the piston is to be pulled out of the syringe, the plunger rod does not slip off from the piston accidentally.
