  • Patent number: 10942187
    Abstract: A method for selectively and easily quantifying the L-form and/or D-form amino acids to be measured using an aminoacyl tRNA synthetase (AARS) with high sensitivity, and an amino acid quantification kit. A method for quantifying amino acids (L-AA and/or D-AA) in a sample using an AARS, wherein the amino acids and the AARS are released from an aminoacyl AMP-AARS complex once formed, and they are used again for forming the aminoacyl AMP-AARS complex, so that reaction products such as pyrophosphoric acid to be measured can be ultimately produced up to a molar number larger than that of the amino acids contained in the sample, and an amino acid quantification kit for performing the method.

    Abstract: A fuel cell system includes a fuel cell, a supply device configured to supply a cathode gas to the fuel cell; and a control unit configured to execute recovery processing of causing a catalyst of the fuel cell to recover from performance deterioration by lowering an output voltage of the fuel cell. The control unit is configured to, when the recovery processing that has been executed is completed, control the supply device to place the fuel cell in a power generation paused state while making a stoichiometric ratio of the cathode gas lower than a stoichiometric ratio of the cathode gas in a normal operation state that is a state before execution of the recovery processing.

  • Patent number: 7612927
    Abstract: An image data generator generates first image data consisting of a plurality of color data and being an image information for each pixel. An image processor including a color converter applies image processing such as color conversion on the first image data. An image display unit displays an image using image data consisting of second color data. An image data output unit outputs the first image data to the outside. The image display unit performs image display using the image data having received image-processing such as color conversion, while the image data output unit and outputs to the outside the image data before receiving the image processing. It is possible to obtain an image processing device capable of realizing an “exact color reproduction” or a “preferred color reproduction” on an image display image display unit, and outputting, to the outside, image data in the form of a standard image data, without reflecting the characteristics of the image display unit.
