  • Patent number: 9644998
    Abstract: Conventional laboratory tests require calibration before each test. This results in the need for a reagent for calibration before each test. Additionally, calibration takes a long time, and the total TAT (Turn Around Time) of a testing system increases. The testing system thus suffers from the difficulty of improving the testing efficiency. This invention, which has been made to solve the problem, provides a testing element for performing a laboratory test, wherein the testing element includes an information recording section at the surface of and/or inside the testing element, and the information recording section stores information on a characteristic of the testing element.

  • Patent number: 9614234
    Abstract: An ion-exchange equipment includes a tank unit formed with a cooling liquid flow-in port and a cooling liquid flow-out port and provided therein with an ion-exchange chamber, and an ion-exchange resin in form of particles filling the ion-exchange chamber of the tank unit. The ion-exchange chamber is provided so as to extend along an axial direction of the tank unit and the ion-exchange chamber has a circular cross section taken perpendicularly to the axial direction of the tank unit, and the cooling liquid flow-in port is formed so as to extend in a tangential direction of the ion-exchange chamber.

  • Patent number: 9592509
    Abstract: A flow passage device is provided, with which a liquid is easily introduced and introduction of air bubbles into a flow passage along with a liquid when the liquid is introduced into the flow passage can be decreased. A flow passage device according to the present invention includes a flow passage through which a fluid flows in a direction different from a vertical direction, an introducing space that has a supply port opening toward the vertical direction and introduces a liquid into the flow passage, and a buffering space that connects the flow passage to the introducing space. The buffering space allows a gas-liquid interface to be formed due to surface tension. A direction in which the gas-liquid interface faces is different from the vertical direction.

  • Patent number: 9162433
    Abstract: A flow passage device includes a first base body having a first hole and a second base body having a second hole connected to the first hole to form a flow passage. A first portion formed around the first hole has a specified shape for holding an adhesive. The second base body has a high-wettability surface around the second hole with a low-wettability surface disposed proximate the high-wettability surface, and at least part of the high-wettability surface has a shape matching at least part of the specified shape. The first and second base body are bonded to each other with the adhesive to form the flow passage by aligning the at least part of the first portion with the at least part of the high-wettability surface with positions of the first and the second holes aligned with each other.
