  • Patent number: 11919693
    Abstract: A bottle carrier is configured to carry plural crown-cap bottles having a collared neck by their neck. The bottle carrier comprises a plurality of bottle holders connected to each other for each holding a crown-cap bottle along an axis of extension, wherein the connection of the bottle holders may be formed as a frame or a backbone. Each bottle holder comprises at least three resilient arms defining a holding space and configured to engage and hold the neck of the bottle and to support the bottle by the collar. The arms are further arranged to provide the bottle neck access into the holding space in radial direction, and to provide an effectively radially inward holding force onto the bottle neck.

  • Publication number: 20230385473
    Abstract: The embodiments simulate an experience of comfort in a room. A digital model A is created of the room and indoor and/or outdoor conditions YR, XR which act on the room are defined. A first experience of comfort KR is calculated for at least one location within the room. A test environment includes at least one actuator that acts on a subject. The state XMR of the at least one actuator is changed such that a second experience of comfort KMR of the subject in the test environment substantially corresponds to the first experience of comfort KR at the one location within the room.

  • Publication number: 20180162041
    Abstract: There is provided a laminating system (30) comprising a laminating module (200) and a transportation module (100) wherein the transportation module (100) is arranged to automatically drive the laminating module (200) over a surface (10) to be laminated. Here the surface (10) to be laminated is large and maintained substantially stationary. The transportation module (100) includes a retaining means and a drive means. The retaining means resists movement of the laminating module (200) relative to the surface (10) except when the laminating module is driven by the drive means. The laminating module (200) includes an unwind unit (210) adapted to receive a roll of laminate (20). The laminate (20) comprises an adhesive film and first release layer. The unwind unit (210) is adapted to allow the laminate to be unwound from the roll. A first release layer discard unit is provided. The first release layer discard unit is adapted to remove the first release layer from the laminate.

  • Publication number: 20090077676
    Abstract: The current invention pertains to a method for screening and discovery of compounds capable of inhibiting, preventing, delaying or reducing genome maintenance disorders and consequences thereof, in particular ageing related symptoms and disorders. The current invention provides a method for screening and discovery of compounds that are capable of inhibiting, preventing, delaying or reducing genome maintenance disorders and consequences thereof. The invention exploits animal models that comprise deficiencies in their genome maintenance systems, such as DNA repair systems, and display premature, enhanced, accelerated or segmental ageing phenotypes. These animal models can be advantageously applied to screen compounds and thereby develop schemes of intervention to treat, delay, inhibit, prevent or cure ageing related symptoms. The current invention thus provides a new and powerful tool to screen aid/or discover therapeutically active compounds to treat ageing related symptoms and diseases.
