  • Publication number: 20230292817
    Abstract: A process for making patterned cigarette wrapper includes the steps of: preparing a printing solution including the steps of: mixing at least water and a starch to form a starch mixture, heating the starch mixture to a temperature of at least about 180° F. preferably for at least about 30 minutes to release amylopectin and amylose, adding propylene glycol to the starch mixture, and mixing the starch mixture and propylene glycol to form a printing solution, wherein the solution is maintained and applied at elevated temperature (120° F. to 150° F.). The process also includes providing a base web of wrapper and applying the printing solution to the wrapper in a predetermined pattern.

  • Publication number: 20230210165
    Abstract: A wrapper for a smoking article has a base web and a plurality of elements each having at least a pair of patch areas where diffusivity is in the range of 0 to about 0.2 cm/sec. Patches of adjacent elements are circumferentially offset from one another along the axis of a smoking article. The add-on material can be applied by gravure printing in a single pass in a chevron pattern such that an apex of the element is co-linear with substantially symmetrically spaced points on a trailing, outer edge of an adjacent element. Testing elements may be simultaneously printed with the add-on material to monitor diffusivity and/or presence of add-on material.

  • Patent number: 11525799
    Abstract: Described are devices, systems, kits, methods, and techniques for analyzing test fluids to determine presence, absence, or concentration of analytes in the test fluids and useful for performing diagnostic testing, such as to quickly identify whether or not an individual may have a particular disease or condition, such as infection by SARS-CoV-2 or a SARS-CoV-2 variant or vaccine-induced immunity or natural immunity to infection by SARS-CoV-2 or a SARS-CoV-2 variant. The devices, systems, kits, methods, and techniques described herein can be used to detect analytes in body fluids using a functionalized electrochemical test strip and potentiostatic measurements, allowing for prompt identification of whether or not an individual has a particular disease or condition, such as in a period of 5 minutes or less.

  • Patent number: 7925685
    Abstract: A control system, a method of operating the same, and a method for setting up the same are disclosed for simplified driving of a function unit parametrized by a plurality of input variables. The control system includes a setting unit and a control unit, the setting unit being used to set a number of prescribed control parameters and to feed them to the control unit. A value tuple that is fed to the function unit for the parametrization thereof is determined by the control unit as a function of the controlled variables in accordance with a stored interpolation function based on interpolation points.

  • Patent number: 7684598
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus are for the loading and postprocessing of three-dimensional digital volume data, in particular from the medical field. Layer images are usually acquired by CT or MR devices and combined to form a volume data record. These combined data are fed to one or more postprocessing methods, such as e.g. the VRT, MIP and/or MPR technique. These postprocessing methods can already be used for a portion of the loaded data directly after the beginning of the loading operation.

  • Patent number: 7548649
    Abstract: A seed point is selected inside a structure that is to be segmented in image data. An adaptive model is defined around the seed point, and a preprocessing filter is applied only within the bounding region. A presegmentation of the preprocessed result is performed, and the bounding region is expanded if necessary to accommodate the presegmentation result. An adaptive model for post-processing may be used. The model is translated, rotated and scaled to find a best fit with the pre-segmented data.
