  • Patent number: 11573427
    Abstract: The invention relates to an optical viewing system and a method of aligning an eyepiece image and an image of a camera that is part of an optical viewing system, which enables both the observation of an optical image with one eye and the capturing of the optical image with the camera. The optical viewing system comprises an optical device, an eyepiece with field diaphragm, a beam splitter, and a camera with image capturing level. According to the method, an image mask is adjusted to the eyepiece image for the camera image of the camera as follows: The eyepiece is illuminated from its side facing away from the optical device, and light passes through the eyepiece to the beam splitter so that the light is partially reflected from the first semi-reflective surface to the second semi-reflective surface and from the second semi-reflective surface to the camera, resulting in the camera capturing an image of the field diaphragm of the eyepiece as a light spot on the image capturing level.

  • Patent number: 11115643
    Abstract: A method for adjusting an optical system, and to an adjustment system for use in an optical system where the adjustment system comprises a predetermined reference object having known visible reference object features, a sensor system, a data evaluation module and an image processor. The data evaluation module receives captured image data and determines at least two visible reference object features of the predetermined reference object arranged in a field of view, and determines position data containing a position deviation of an image of the object to be examined or, in the case of a stereoscopic optical system, of a first and second half-image of the object to be examined. The image processor ascertains an optical distortion of the visible reference object features and sets a corresponding geometric rectification of received image data.

  • Patent number: 10682039
    Abstract: A video endoscopic device has a camera head and two parallel optical arrangements, each with optical components, arranged coaxially with one another along a common first optical axis of the optical components of a respective optical arrangement and in the interior of an endoscope shaft. The optical components transmit an optical image from a distal end of the respective optical arrangement to a proximal end of the respective optical arrangement. The camera head contains at least one image sensor comprising a recording plane and at least two projection objectives, each having a second optical axis and arranged to project an image onto the image sensor. The optical arrangements comprise a collimating optical unit for generating an at least approximately parallel beam path at the outlet of the respective optical arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10202632
    Abstract: A method for determining the amount of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c), in which—if required—the erythrocytes in a sample are hemolyzed, the haemoglobin that is then released—if required—is contacted with a proteolytic agent and the glycated hemoglobin degradation products obtained in this way or otherwise are quantified is disclosed. In order to provide such a process and reagents employable therein that has/have the property of sufficient stability of the chemical compounds that are essential to the reaction, the provision of the requisite proteolytic agent in the form of an inactivated protease is proposed, which is then only reactivated in situ.
