  • Patent number: 10307915
    Abstract: An inspection method of a suction nozzle. Air flow rates that flow in multiple reference pipes that have different sectional areas are measured. A proportionality factor between air flow rates and sectional areas of the reference pipes is calculated based on the measured air flow rates of the multiple reference pipes, and the sectional areas of the multiple reference pipes. An air flow rate in a suction nozzle that is an inspection target is measured. The sectional area of the suction nozzle is calculated based on the air flow rate of the suction nozzle and the calculated proportionality factor. The sectional area of the suction nozzle calculated in this manner is substantially fixed even when the pressure of air supplied from an air source fluctuates. The sectional area of the suction nozzle is proportional to the air flow rate that flows in an inner portion of the suction nozzle.

  • Patent number: 10303346
    Abstract: An information processing apparatus includes cursor control, display position change, and range selection units. When switching operation for switching to a selection mode for selecting characters included in a display region displayed in a display unit is detected, the cursor control unit displays another cursor different from a cursor displayed in the display region. When moving operation for moving the display region is detected in the selection mode, the display position change unit maintains one cursor at an original display position or a certain position near the original display position in the display unit, and moves a display position of the display region together with the other cursor in accordance with the moving operation. The range selection unit determines, to be a selection range, a region between the one cursor and the other after the movement of the display position of the display region by the display position change unit.

  • Publication number: 20190153447
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for retaining and expressing physiologically active substances in a target tissue-specific-manner, by administering the physiologically active substances to target submucous tissue. Specifically, the present inventors demonstrated that, when physiologically active substances were directly administered into submucous tissues without using a carrier, the physiologically active substances were effectively and safely retained at the administration sites over long periods without loss and diffusion, and produced the effect acting in a reservoir-like fashion. The physiologically active substances administered as described above were demonstrated to produce the therapeutic effect without having an influence on organs other than the administered organ.

  • Publication number: 20190150292
    Abstract: A circuit forming method where a metal ink is ejected to a planned formation position of a first wiring at an upper face of a base material. Then, the metal ink is baked, and first wiring is formed. Further, a planned connection section of the first wiring and a second wiring is unbaked. The metal-ink is ejected over an upper face of the unbaked metal ink and a planned formation position of the second wiring at the upper face of the base material. Since the wettability of the upper face of the unbaked metal ink and the wettability of the upper face of the base material are equal to each other, the ejected metal ink ejected and the unbaked metal ink are not separated from each other, so that it is possible to properly connect the first wiring and the second wiring to each other.
