  • Publication number: 20060177943
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of suppressing the nonspecific interaction between molecules, characterized in that in a process to immobilize a molecule onto a solid phase carrier and analyze the specific interaction between the molecule and a molecule that specifically interacts with the molecule on the solid phase, the hydrophobic property of the solid phase surface in the solid phase carrier is regulated, particularly a hydrophilic spacer is interlaid at the time of immobilization of the molecule onto the solid phase carrier, which method makes it possible to suppress the nonspecific interaction between the molecules, and to reduce nonspecific adsorption to the solid phase.

  • Publication number: 20060109197
    Abstract: A display system (100) is provided which includes two display devices (101a and 101b); a coupling section (102) for coupling the two display devices such that one display device can be displaced relative to the other display device; a detection section (111-114) for detecting a value by which a position of the one display device relative to the other display device can be identified; and a display control section (115) for generating an image to be displayed on each of the one and the other display devices, based on the position detected by the detection section. The one and the other display devices display their respective images generated by the display control section.

  • Publication number: 20060024845
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of analyzing the specific interaction between a molecule to be analyzed and a molecule that specifically interacts with the former molecule on a solid phase using a molecule-immobilized solid phase support mixture prepared by binding the subject molecule to the solid phase support without specifying the binding position on the molecule side, particularly a method wherein the immobilization is conducted via a spacer introduced to the molecule without specifying the binding position on the molecule side, which method makes it possible to identify and select only a molecule that exhibits a specific interaction with a molecule to be analyzed, without an investigation of structure-activity correlation, which has conventionally been essential, and hence enables an analysis of the interaction between these molecules.

  • Publication number: 20040258413
    Abstract: First through third light reception elements 111-113 receive infrared data D from an operation input transmission section 2, and output the received data to an operation input permission determination section 12a. The operation input permission determination section 12a distinguishes among the first through third infrared light reception elements 111-113, thereby determining in which space an operation input has been performed, and analyzes the description of the operation input, thereby determining whether to accept the operation input. A calculation processing section 13a performs various processes based on the description of the operation input from the operation input permission determination section 12a, a processing result of a position detection section 17, and map data stored in a map data storage section 16. A drawing processing section 14a performs a process of outputting a processing result of the calculation processing section 13a to first and second displays 3 and 4.
