  • Patent number: 5169846
    Abstract: A non-aqueous micellar solution, for use in animal health, of one or more non water-soluble Anthelmintics and or insect growth regulators in a polyethoxylated oil or fat surfactant and one or more co-solvents chosen from a group comprising dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO), N-methyl pyrollidone (NMP), tetraglycol (TG) and propylene glycol (PG).
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 4577506
    Abstract: An ultrasonic scanning probe 10 for inspecting structures for internal defects and providing a plan position display comprises a transducer 70 mounted within a block 12 of ultrasonically absorbent material, such as polyethylene, adjacent to a window 30 which may be placed in contact with a surface of the structure. The block 12 is turnable about a rotation axis normal to the window 30, while the transducer 70 is oriented at an angle to the axis so as to scan a sector of the surface as the block 12 is turned, and an attenuating coupling medium 160 occupies the space between the transducer 70 and the window 30. The scanning probe 10 may be used in wet or dry situations.

  • Patent number: 4572915
    Abstract: Micellized aqueous formulations for fat soluble vitamins, essential nutrients, herb oils and pharmaceutical agents are obtained by a process wherein the fat soluble vitamin, essential nutrient or agent is first admixed with a suitable amount of polyethoxylated castor oil and a pharmaceutically acceptable polyol, such as glycerol to provide a non-aqueous phase. Thereafter, an aqueous phase containing mostly water and optionally a preservative, such as sodium benzoate, is slowly added to the agitated non-aqueous phase in such a manner that the temperature of the non-aqueous phase, including the aqueous phase added thereto, is maintained at an elevated temperature, preferably between approximately to C. After cooling, the final admixture is clear, homogeneous, having micelles of approximately 2 microns or smaller size.
