  • Publication number: 20200263160
    Abstract: Described are compositions, in particular lyophilizates, containing proteolytic enzymes, and methods for producing the compositions. Typically these compositions contain one or more proteases with collagenase activity and a neutral protease, for example, thermolysin. The compositions are free of acetate salts. Surprisingly, such compositions can be dissolved in water more rapidly than lyophilized protease mixtures of the state of the art.

  • Patent number: 10347491
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method. The method includes implanting recombination center particles into a semiconductor body via at least one contact hole in an insulation layer formed on top of the semiconductor body, forming a contact electrode electrically connected to the semiconductor body in the at least one contact hole, and annealing the semiconductor body to diffuse the recombination center particles in the semiconductor body. Forming the contact electrode includes forming a barrier layer on sections of the semiconductor body uncovered in the at least one contact hole, wherein the barrier layer is configured to inhibit the recombination center particles from diffusing out of the semiconductor body.

  • Patent number: 8786450
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for identifying dirt and/or dew on components of a voltage intermediate circuit converter. According to the invention, the temporal curve of a partial discharge pulsed current is detected at least during a precharging process of an intermediate circuit capacitor of the voltage intermediate circuit converter comprising at least one capacitor, wherein a frequency spectrum is calculated from said current pulse, and wherein depending of the result, a dirt warning and/or a dew warning is activated. Thus, the degree of dirt and/or dew of said voltage intermediate circuit converter can be determined at least during a charging process of an intermediate circuit capacitor of a voltage intermediate circuit converter, thereby preventing a breakdown including the consequences thereof.
