  • Publication number: 20190204200
    Abstract: Providing a method of estimating the number of microparticles such as microorganisms in a sample, performing complicated operations. The method comprises counting by constant flow the number of target microorganisms contained in the sample at a predetermined flow rate, sectioning measurement data obtained as a result of the constant flow counting into a predetermined number of sections by a predetermined unit time for a section, counting the number of sections in which microorganisms are detected and the number of sections in which they are not detected, in the predetermined number of sections; and estimating the number of microorganisms in the sample, by a statistical method from the flow rate of the sample in the constant flow counting step, the predetermined number of sections and the predetermined unit time in the sectioning step, and the number of sections in which microorganisms are detected in the counting step.

  • Patent number: 5070594
    Abstract: An acceleration sensor includes a tubular casing having one open and closed by a lid of an elastic material. A magnetic member is received within a sealed space defined by the casing and the lid, and a damper liquid fills in the sealed space. The lid is fixedly connected at its outer peripheral portion to one end portion of the casing including the open end thereof. The lid is deformable away from the other end of the casing so as to absorb a thermal expansion of the damper liquid. The lid has an annular deformable diaphragm portion extending between a central tubular portion of the lid and the outer peripheral portion of the lid. For attaching the lid to the casing, the outer peripheral portion of the lid is pressed into the one end portion of the casing so as to bring the diaphragm portion into contact with the damper liquid, so that part of the damper liquid flows into the tubular portion. Subsequently, an axial bore of the tubular portion is closed by a closure member.
