  • Patent number: 10625266
    Abstract: An embodiment of a reagent container includes a bottle with a pipe to reduce the effects of reagent sloshing. The bottle has an elongated base and an opposed cover connected by side walls and an end wall. A flat platform surrounded by a raised rim lies in the base opposite an opening in the cover. A ribbed pipe frictionally fits within the bottle opening and may attach to the anchor region leaving vent passages around the pipe. The pipe includes an aperture adjacent to the anchor region and oriented toward the end wall so that sloshed fluid has only a small effect on the level of reagent in the pipe during transfers. A modified blow molding process produces the anchor region by extending a pin a predetermined distance into a mold while the molded material is still plastic.

  • Patent number: 10597247
    Abstract: Automatic sheet feeding of an installed roll is performed more reliably. To this end, a leading end of a sheet is detected on the basis of a change in an output value of a sensor while causing a roll to rotate in a winding direction using a sensor capable of detecting a distance to the sheet separated from the roll. After the detection, the roll is caused to rotate in a feeding direction, and a feeding state of the sheet is determined on the basis of a change in the output value of the sensor.
