  • Publication number: 20150098197
    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.

  • Publication number: 20150079611
    Abstract: The present invention provides a staining method in which the fluorescent staining properties in a fluorescently-immunostained specimen are not reduced even when an oil-based mounting medium is used. The present invention also provides a method of preventing deterioration of a fluorescent label caused by irradiation with excitation light and improving the light resistance in a fluorescently-immunostained specimen obtained by the staining method. The biological substance detection method according to the present invention is a biological substance detection method for specifically detecting a biological substance from a pathological specimen, which includes the steps of: immunostaining the specimen with a fluorescent label; immobilizing the thus stained specimen; and mounting the thus immobilized specimen using a mounting medium including an organic solvent not freely miscible with water.

  • Patent number: 8969100
    Abstract: Regions where metastatic cancer cells can exist are detected with high accuracy in a sentinel lymph node. Quantum dots are injected into the vicinity of a cancer in a living body, thereby identifying the location of the sentinel lymph node by means of fluorescence. Subsequently, the sentinel lymph node is extracted. With respect to the sentinel lymph node extracted with quantum dots injected, structural analysis is conducted by means of precision fluorescence measurement which uses a confocal fluorescence microscope for monomolecular observation. Specifically, the fluorescence intensity is measured with respect to each of multiple areas in the sentinel lymph nodes, and out of the multiple areas measured, one or more areas are detected as afferent lymph vessel inflow regions in descending order of fluorescence intensity.
