Abstract: A separation chip for separating an insoluble component from a suspension using centrifugal force by rotation, includes a suspension holding tank, a separation liquid holding tank, and an insoluble component holding tank arranged in order from an inner circumferential side during rotation, wherein the suspension holding tank and the insoluble component holding tank are connected to each other, the insoluble component holding tank and the separation liquid holding tank are connected to each other by a narrow portion, and in the insoluble component holding tank, a connecting portion with the suspension holding tank is positioned further toward an outer circumferential side than the narrow portion.
Abstract: A liquid-feeding chip for feeding a liquid utilizing the action of centrifugal force and gravity by rotating the chip around an axis of rotation, includes a first storage tank (1-1) into which the liquid can be introduced when rotation of the chip is stopped, and two or more liquid-feeding units arranged in a plurality of levels adjacent to each other, each liquid-feeding unit (U-1, U-2, U-3) being composed of a first holding tank (10-1, 20-1, 30-1), a second holding tank (10-2, 20-2, 30-2) positioned in the direction of gravity with respect to the first holding tank, and a channel B (B-1, B-2, B-3) which extends from the first holding tank in the direction of gravity and which connects the first holding tank and the second holding tank, the first holding tank at a first level being connected with a channel A (A-1) which extends from the first storage tank toward an outer circumferential side.
Abstract: A player brings a stylus pen into contact with a batting position mark 32 displayed on a second liquid crystal display that includes a touch panel, and inputs a batting start timing and a hitting direction by inputting a stroke operation along the direction of a hitting direction guide 34R, 34C, or 34L.
Abstract: A player brings a stylus pen into contact with a pitching position mark displayed on a second liquid crystal display that includes a touch panel, inputs a ball speed by adjusting a touch position holding time, and inputs a pitching start timing and a pitching direction by inputting a first stroke operation along the direction of a pitching direction guide. When the player desires to change the path of a pitched ball, the player inputs a ball path change direction by inputting a second stroke operation sideways after the first stroke operation.
Abstract: A biaxially oriented multilayer film, able to prevent gaps between the film and a package containing a product or wrinkles and to wrap in a predetermined way while preventing smell from being transferred to the product, comprised of a base layer formed by a propylene-based polymer and surface layers formed by a propylene-based resin on the two surfaces of the base layer, wherein a heat shrinkage rate R1 in a length direction and a heat shrinkage rate R2 in a width direction when heating at 120° C.
Abstract: A system for distributing contents to the terminals of users through a network. Before the distribution, it is determined whether or not the contents can be distributed according to the information about the places to which the contents are distributed and the information about the places in which the contents are shown. Thus, a larger number of users can be provided with an opportunity to enjoy the contents without disordering the commercial domain of the showing movie theater for showing the contents.
