  • Patent number: 6315719
    Abstract: A system for long-term remote medical monitoring is especially suitable for the medical supervision of astronauts onboard a space station. The system includes at least one autonomous sensor unit (SU) with a sensor (1) and transmit/receive electrodes (2) connected to a microchip (3) and mounted on a carrier (4) in the form of an adhesive bandage that can easily be applied to the skin of the subject astronaut (11). The system further includes a body transceiver (10) that is worn on the body of the subject and acts as a centralized transmitting and receiving unit, and a portable data logger (12). Medical data such as the pulse rate and the like, as well as environmental data such as the ambient surrounding air temperature, are sensed by respective allocated sensor units (SU) and transmitted from the sensor units as electrical signals via the skin and other body tissues of the subject (11) to the body transceiver (10).

  • Patent number: 5525522
    Abstract: Biological preparations or specimens are treated for a subsequent microscopic inspection. For this purpose it is necessary that the inner structure that is to be studied does not change prior to and during inspection. It is thus necessary to subject the specimens to a chemical and/or mechanical pretreatment for increasing the permeability of the specimen surface to a fixation substance in the form of an aqueous solution that contains an aldehyde fixation agent, preferably a highly volatile fixation agent or substance. The exposure of the specimens to the fixation substance takes place by immersion and/or spraying and/or fumigation. The fixation agent is preferably volatile and in the form of an aldehyde proportion of about 5% by volume or of an acrolein proportion of about 10% by volume.
