  • Publication number: 20190275197
    Abstract: Methods for producing a fibrin matrix comprising a fusion peptide are described herein. In some embodiments, the method includes providing three different components, including a first component containing fibrinogen or a fibrinogen precursor and optionally, transglutaminase or a transglutaminase precursor, a second component containing thrombin or a thrombin precursor, and a third component containing a fusion peptide. In these embodiments, neither the first component nor the second component includes the fusion peptide. In some embodiments, the first or second components are premixed with the third component. The first, second and third components are mixed to form a fibrin matrix comprising a covalently linked fusion peptide. The mixing is carried out in a time frame of not more than 5 days. A kit for producing the fibrin matrix comprising a covalently linked fusion peptide is also described herein.

  • Patent number: 9535232
    Abstract: A method for determining the depth of field for a specific distance by means of measuring optics comprises manual optical focussing of the measuring optics by means of the human eye without projection onto a focussing screen or intermediate projection surface, monitoring of the movement of the measuring optics mechanism during focussing, determining and indicating the adjusted distance from the movement, wherein, with consideration of focal distance, aperture, hyperfocal distance and circle of confusion, the range of the depth of field to the adjusted distance is arithmetically determined and indicated.

  • Patent number: 8348214
    Abstract: The invention relates to a mounting arrangement for optical devices having a mounting plate forming an undercut guide for receiving a clamping plate, the mounting plate comprising a side bar in which an undercut profile groove is formed, and having a strip located opposite the bar movably connected to the mounting plate via a clamping mechanism and a second undercut profile groove forming the undercut guide together with the first undercut profile groove, the strip being able to be tightened against the mounting plate by the clamping mechanism to fix the clamping plate, whereby the spacing distance between the undercut profile grooves is reduced. A second undercut guide is formed by additional undercut profile grooves in the same side bar of the mounting plate and the same strip, wherein the guides are both disposed on one side of the plane (X) spanned by the mounting plate.
