  • Patent number: 10667739
    Abstract: An olfactory examination apparatus includes: an odor generating unit having an odorant generating mechanism that stores an odorant and generates an odorous gas having a defined concentration or an defined intensity and an odorless gas generating mechanism; a gas supply unit configured to alternately supply an odorous gas or an odorless gas having a defined concentration or a defined intensity of the odor from the odorant generating mechanism and the odorless gas generating mechanism to an examinee through an odor presentation mechanism placed on a nostril portion of the examinee, and a reply unit that allows the examinee to express an answer when smelling the odorant in order to examine an olfactory function.

  • Patent number: 8257966
    Abstract: Disclosed is a reaction kit for preventing the entry of foreign matter into a reaction plate from the outside and the pollution of a surrounding environment. The reaction kit includes: a reaction plate (2) having, on the top surface side thereof, a reaction container (4) for carrying out the reaction of a sample and a reagent container (12) containing a reagent used for the reaction of a sample and sealed with a film (14); a dispensation tip (20) arranged on the top surface side of the reaction plate (2); a cover (24) covering a space above the top surface of the reaction plate (2) and movably supporting the dispensation tip (20) so that a distal end thereof is located inside the space covered with the cover (4) and a proximal end thereof is located outside the space; and a sample container (32) for introducing a sample into the space covered with the cover (24) from the outside through a sealable opening (31) provided in a part of the cover (24).

  • Publication number: 20090046141
    Abstract: To provide stereoscopic spectacles for enabling a user to stably enjoy stereoscopic viewing of a stereoscopic image shown on a display screen of a portable game machine. Stereoscopic spectacles (1) have a spectacles portion (30) for stereoscopically viewing a stereoscopic image shown on a display screen (91) of a portable game machine (90). Also, the stereoscopic spectacles (1) comprise an abutting front wall (56) and an abutting rear wall (57), placed opposed to each other for abutting on side surfaces of the game machine (90) from two opposed directions with the display screen (91) in-between, when the stereoscopic spectacles (1) are used, and further spectacles supporting portions (50) extending respectively from the abutting front wall (56) and the abutting rear wall (57), these being opposed to each other, for supporting the spectacles portion (39) so as to be placed opposed to the display screen (91) of the game machine (90).

  • Patent number: 5370782
    Abstract: An electophoretic apparatus for determining the base sequence of DNA has a device for introducing a sample, a device for controlling the temperature of the sample in the sample introducing device, a device for causing electrophoresis of the temperature-controlled sample in a gel to separate it into fragments, and a device for analyzing those fragments. The apparatus makes it possible to carry out successively and automatically a process which determines the base sequence of DNA by treating DNA in accordance with the Sanger method to form complementary DNA fragments of different lengths ending specifically with four different kinds of bases, separating those fragments from one another electrophoretically, and identifying the base at the end of each of those fragments.

  • Patent number: 4804450
    Abstract: Apparatus for fusing cells, wherein the fusion chamber is provided with a pair of spaced electrodes whose opposite surfaces have such a vertical dimension as to prevent any nonuniform electric field from adversely affecting fusion of cells. The electrodes may comprise a pair of parallel plate electrodes or cocentrically arranged hollow cylindrical electrodes the outer one of which has an inner circumferential surface of a first radius while the inner electrode has an outer circumferential surface of a second radius smaller than the first radius, the difference between the first and second radii being sufficiently small as compared with the whole length of the radii.
