  • Patent number: 10754161
    Abstract: An apparatus control system includes smart glasses worn by a user, a home electrical apparatus that is a target of control, and a controller that controls the home electrical apparatus. In the smart glasses, a sensor detects information including at least one of image information, motion information, biological information, or environmental information. A communicator transmits to the controller the information detected by the sensor. The controller, based on the information detected by the sensor, determines a recommended operation indicating operational content recommended with respect to a recommended apparatus, and transmits the determined recommended operation to the smart glasses. The communicator receives the recommended operation transmitted from the controller. The display displays a candidate group for selection of the home electrical apparatus along with a recommended operation received from the communicator.

  • Publication number: 20200088731
    Abstract: A method for detecting HER2-positive cancer cells, comprising steps of: (a) fixing and then permeabilizing cells; (b) contacting a primary antibody that recognizes an intracellular epitope of HER2 with the cells and then contacting a secondary antibody that recognizes the primary antibody and is labeled with a fluorescent dye; and (c) irradiating the cells with excitation light for the fluorescent dye and detecting fluorescence emitted from the cells is provided. According to such a method, HER2-positive cancer cells can be detected with high sensitivity.

  • Publication number: 20200015855
    Abstract: A suture needle for uterine hemostatic compression comprises at least one suture needle and a suture thread. The at least one suture needle includes a body portion extending linearly in a lengthwise direction and a puncture portion provided at a tip of the body portion in the lengthwise direction to be thrust into a uterus. The suture thread is attached to a base end portion that is on an opposite side of the puncture portion in the suture needle. The puncture portion is formed as a spherical surface that bulges toward a tip side of the lengthwise direction. The spherical surface has a radius in a connection portion with the body portion substantially identical to a radius of the body portion.

  • Patent number: 10443110
    Abstract: A high toughness and high tensile strength thick steel plate has a plate thickness of 100 mm or more, wherein a reduction of area in a center of the plate thickness by tension in a plate thickness direction is 40% or more. Thus, a high tensile strength thick steel plate with excellent strength and toughness in a center of the plate thickness can be obtained with no need for a larger production line, even in the case of producing a high strength thick steel plate for which the addition amount of alloying element needs to be increased.

  • Publication number: 20190308224
    Abstract: A first SPM, prepared by mixing sulfuric acid and hydrogen peroxide water at a first mixing ratio, is supplied to a substrate. A second SPM, prepared by mixing the sulfuric acid and the hydrogen peroxide water at a second mixing ratio greater than the first mixing ratio, is supplied to the substrate after the supply of the first SPM is stopped. The first SPM expelled from the substrate flows into a drain piping. The second SPM expelled from the substrate flows into a recovery piping. SPM is prepared by mixing the hydrogen peroxide water with sulfuric acid contained in the second SPM guided by the recovery piping.

  • Publication number: 20190172737
    Abstract: In equipment that supplies a processing liquid on a top surface of a substrate while holding the substrate horizontally in a chamber a generation status of fumes is determined. Specifically, an image of a predetermined imaging area in the chamber is captured. Then, the generation status of fumes in the chamber is determined based on luminance values of the captured image acquired by the capturing of an image. Accordingly, it is possible to quantitatively determine whether a generation status of fumes in a chamber is normal.
