  • Publication number: 20200057294
    Abstract: A cell area extraction unit (241) extracts a cell area in a phase image that is created based on a hologram obtained by in-line holographic microscope (IHM). A background value acquisition unit (242) obtains a background value from phase values at a plurality of positions outside the cell area. An intracellular phase value acquisition unit (243) averages a plurality of phase values on a sampling line set at a position close to the periphery of a cell, while avoiding a central portion in which the phase value may be lowered in the cell area, to obtain an intracellular phase value. A phase change amount calculation unit (244) obtains the difference between the intracellular phase value and the background value. A phase change amount determination unit (245) compares the value of the difference with thresholds in two levels to determine whether the cell is in an undifferentiated state or an undifferentiation deviant state.

  • Publication number: 20190139161
    Abstract: A charging reservation system includes a quota manager configured to manage allocation of a charging reservation quota defined by a charging location and a charging time zone in accordance with information transmitted from each of a plurality of vehicles. When a vehicle requests allocation of a reservation quota in a state where the reservation quota is allocated to a vehicle, the quota manager inquires of a user of the vehicle as to whether the user of the vehicle can agree to transfer the reservation quota or not. Then, when the user of the vehicle agrees to transfer the reservation quota, the quota manager allocates the reservation quota to the vehicle. The vehicle pays a charging point as an allocation reception fee for receiving allocation of the reservation quota. The vehicle obtains a charging point as an allocation transfer fee by transferring the reservation quota.
