  • Publication number: 20050183494
    Abstract: A device having a flow channel, wherein a layer of mesh is adhered to a surface forming a wall of a flow channel, but the layer of mesh is of such dimensions that the layer of mesh does not contact those portions of the device where electrochemical reactions occur and electrons flow. In one aspect, the invention provides a sensor, such as, for example, a biosensor, in the form of a strip, the sensor being suitable for electrochemical or optical measurement. The sensor comprises a base layer and a cover layer having a layer of mesh adhered thereto, and the base layer is separated from the cover layer by a spacer layer. The base layer, the cover layer having a layer of mesh adhered thereto, and the spacer layer define a flow channel into which a liquid sample is drawn therein and flows therethrough by means of wicking.

  • Patent number: 6491563
    Abstract: A gravity-deformable toy is formed by interlocking a plurality of flexible struts with a plurality of nodes. Each strut has a truncated sphere on at least one end thereof and each node has a plurality of spherical cavities defined therein. A truncated sphere of a strut is received in a spherical cavity to lock the strut to the node. Each of the struts has a center uniform cylinder having an outer diameter, and a diameter of the truncated sphere. The diameter of the truncated sphere is larger than the diameter of the center uniform cylinder. Each of the cavities has a circular entrance which has a diameter equal to the diameter of the central uniform cylinder and each of the cavities has a diameter equal to the diameter of the truncated sphere. When assembled, the toy is deformed by gravity when pendently supported.

  • Publication number: 20020153639
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for marking a laminated film material comprising at least a metal film and a plastic film material affixed to it by means of an adhesive. To ensure that the marking of the film withstands any subsequent process steps, such as sterilization of the packaging, and is visually appealing, it is envisaged that the plastic film material be removed and/or visibly changed in structure by laser.

  • Patent number: 6015657
    Abstract: A photographic element contains at least one photosensitive silver halide emulsion layer having associated therewith a 5-pyrazolone photographic coupler represented by the formula: ##STR1## wherein substituents X.sub.1, X.sub.2, Y, G.sub.1, G.sub.2, G.sub.3, Z, and R.sub.1 may be as specified in the specification; a, b, and c are individually integers form 0 to 3 provided that "a" cannot be an integer which, combined with the selection of X.sub.1 and X.sub.2, allows the number of chloride substituents on the ring containing G.sub.1 to exceed 3; and the sum of the Hammett's sigma values for X.sub.1, X.sub.2, Y, G.sub.1, G.sub.2, and G.sub.3 is at least 1.3.

  • Patent number: 5843618
    Abstract: An aqueous-developable chromogenic photographic heat-transferable non-aqueous dye-diffusion-transfer photographic element is disclosed, wherein said element comprises radiation sensitive silver halide, a dye-providing compound that forms or releases a heat-transferable image dye upon reaction of said compound with the oxidation product of a primary amine developing agent, a hydrophilic binder, and a thermal solvent for facilitating non-aqueous diffusion transfer according to formula (I) ##STR1## wherein AH is a hydrogen bond donating group with an aqueous pK.sub.a value for proton loss of greater than 6;L.sup.1 and L.sup.
