  • Publication number: 20170160174
    Abstract: Provided is an embedding medium for specimen preparation that, when preparing a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen, involves no thermal invasion of the tissue, minimizes wrinkling and tearing during thin slicing, and makes it possible to confirm the position of the tissue in the embedding medium, and also for preparing a curable base material penetrating specimen on the same plane as a curable base material nonpenetrating specimen. The problem can be solved by using an embedding medium for specimen preparation that includes gelatin that is in a liquid state at 15° C.-25° C. and assumes a solid state at 4° C. when made into an aqueous solution.

  • Patent number: 9628998
    Abstract: A wireless communication network system including: mobile radios mounted on a moving body moving along a predetermined route; and a plurality of immobile radios arranged along the route, adjacent immobile radios wirelessly communicating with each other, to transmit information from a transmission source to a terminal by relaying the information. The mobile radios and the immobile radios communicate with each other by a time division multiple access method, in which time synchronization is performed to allow each of the mobile radios and the immobile radios to communicate in an allocated time slot. The mobile radios are disposed on front and rear parts of the moving body and are capable of communicating with each other. When the moving body is between the immobile radios arranged to be capable of wirelessly communicating with each other, the two mobile radios is capable of relaying information propagation between the immobile radios.

  • Patent number: 8998149
    Abstract: A ground device 1 transmits train control information to an on-board device mounted on a train. The ground device 1 receives a train detection signal (TD signal) from a train with an ATC/TD on-board device mounted thereon through loop coils 21 to 2m, and receives a train position signal from a train with a CBTC on-board device mounted thereon through wayside radio sets 61 to 6n. Based on the input train detection signal and train position signal, the ground device 1 detects the position of each train traveling on a route R, generates control information on each train based on the detected position of each train, and converts the control information to an ATC signal and a CBTC signal. The ATC signal is transmitted to the loop coils 21 to 2m through information transmission units 4, and the CBTC signal is transmitted through the wayside radio sets 61 to 6n.
