  • Patent number: 11456167
    Abstract: A display area 60 of a display unit of a mass spectrometer shows a result of tuning. The display area 60 includes: a tuning-item displaying section 62 configured to display all tuning items and a result of whether each tuning item has been tuned; and an analyzable-condition displaying section 63 configured to display a condition under which an analysis is possible based on the result. The tuning items may be displayed respectively and individually. Alternatively, the tuning items may be displayed in a grouped manner with a plurality of tuning items in a group. Consequently, a user knows, at a glance, whether the tuning necessary for an analysis that the user intends to perform has been performed. If a necessary tuning item has not been tuned, the user immediately starts to tune (only) the tuning item. Further, a user immediately knows in a current state of tuning whether the analysis that the user intends to perform is possible. Therefore, when the analysis is possible, the user can start the analysis.

  • Patent number: 10591452
    Abstract: A gas chromatograph is provided which is capable of effectively reducing the amount consumed of a carrier gas, reducing the time and effort required for an operator to manually set parameters, and preventing damages to a column and a detector due to a setting mistake. In a case where a stop operation for the power supply of the gas chromatograph is performed (Yes in step S101), the flow rate of a carrier gas to be supplied to a sample vaporization chamber is decreased and the temperatures of the column and the detector are sufficiently lowered (steps S102 to S104), and then the power supply of the gas chromatograph is switched over from an ON state to an OFF state (step S106).

  • Publication number: 20120302847
    Abstract: A first special image is produced by combining an overall bright normal light image with a blue-enhanced image in which blood vessels and their shapes are enhanced, and displayed on a display device. A suspected lesion such as a spot is detected in the first special image. When the suspected lesion is found, an oxygen saturation level of the suspected lesion is obtained. When the oxygen saturation level of the suspected lesion is in a hypoxic condition within a predetermined range, an oxygen saturation image representing the oxygen saturation level is displayed instead of the first special image on the display device.

  • Publication number: 20110188124
    Abstract: Present invention provides an image print sheet printable in high accuracy without reducing productivity. After a lenticular sheet 101 and a reception layer sheet 102 on which a detection pattern 103 is printed are inserted in an attachment apparatus 110 from insertion openings, the optical density is measured repeatedly by a density sensor 111 while rotating and parallel-moving the lenticular sheet 101. When the maximum density is measured, the reception layer sheet 102 is attached to the lenticular sheet 101. In this way, an image print sheet 100 having the detection pattern 103 parallel to the longitudinal direction of convex parts 101a and coinciding with the vertexes of the convex parts 101a is produced. When printing on the image print sheet 100, the detection pattern is detected by a photo-sensor, an azimuth adjustment and a print start position determination will be performed. Consequently, printing with high accuracy is available.
