  • Publication number: 20170115300
    Abstract: The present invention provides a biological substance detection method for specifically detecting a biological substance from a pathological specimen, by which method, when immunostaining using a fluorescent label and staining for morphological observation using a staining agent for morphological observation are simultaneously performed, the results of fluorescence observation and immunostaining can be assessed properly even if the fluorescent label and/or the staining agent is/are deteriorated by irradiation with an excitation light. The biological substance detection method according to the present invention is characterized in that the brightness retention rate of an immunostained part is in a range of 80% to 120% in relation to the brightness retention rate of a part stained for morphological observation when the fluorescent label used for the immunostaining is observed.

  • Patent number: 9632081
    Abstract: A detection method for a specific biological substance uses, as a color former, fluorescent substance-encapsulated nanoparticles which have biological substance-recognizing molecules. The biological substance-recognizing molecules specifically recognize a specific biological substance. The biological substance-recognizing molecules are bonded to the surface of the nanoparticles. Nanoparticles encapsulating no fluorescent substance are used as a blocking agent for preventing the fluorescent substance-encapsulated nanoparticles from being non-specifically adsorbed on a biological substance other than the specific biological substance.

  • Patent number: 9596760
    Abstract: Terminal portions are arrayed at regular widths and regular intervals, and each face any enable terminal, and are electrically connected to the enable terminals by conductive particles. A lead portion is connected to the other terminal portion except for a pair of terminal portions which is a pair of terminal portions adjacent to each other, and extends from an overlap region to a lead region. A connection portion connects the respective terminal portions that are not connected with the lead portion to the adjacent terminal portions that are connected to the lead portion within an area of the overlap region. An interval between a pair of lead portions extending from a pair of connection portions located to sandwich a pair of terminal portions that are not connected with the lead portion therebetween is larger than an interval between the other adjacent lead portions.
