  • Publication number: 20220178932
    Abstract: An object of the invention is to provide a method for detecting cancer in a simple and highly accurate manner, and a reagent that can be used in the method. A method for detecting cancer (excluding renal cell cancer), which comprises measuring the level of Azurocidin (AZU1) in a sample, in which it is determined that cancer is detected when a measured value exceeds a preset reference value. The cancer is preferably selected from the group consisting of stomach cancer, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and lung cancer. A reagent containing an antibody that specifically recognizes AZU1 is used in detecting cancer (excluding renal cell cancer).

  • Publication number: 20200191783
    Abstract: To provide a measurement system in which the reaction rate of the antigen-antibody reaction is high, and a B/F separation step can easy be carried out. A method for detecting a substance to be detected, which comprises bringing a) a first recognizing substance bound to a fibrous substance, b) a second recognizing substance which is labeled, and c) a substance to be detected, provided that the first recognizing substance and the second recognizing substance are capable of being bound to the substance to be detected, into contact with one another in a dispersed state so as to form a complex in which the above a, b and c are bound together, separating the complex and an unbound b, and detecting the label of the obtained complex.

  • Patent number: 10295886
    Abstract: An imaging apparatus includes a shutter for controlling object light incident to an image sensor, a holding frame holding the shutter, an annular elastic member for absorbing impact generated when the shutter is driven, a first fastening member engaging with an inner circumferential surface of the annular elastic member, a first body-side support provided to a body of the imaging apparatus, and a first holding-frame-side support provided to the holding frame. On either of the first body-side support and the first holding-frame-side support, a through hole is formed, into which the annular elastic member is press-fitted. A length of an inner circumference of the through hole is greater than a length of an outer circumference of the annular elastic member when the through hole is seen from a direction to which the first fastening member is fastened. Another of the body-side support and the first holding-frame-side support is fastened with the first fastening member.

  • Patent number: 5250997
    Abstract: A fine particle recovery device for recovering fine particles such as waste toner accumulating at a plurality of locations such as a photoreceptor and a transferring belt in an image forming apparatus. The fine particle recovery device possesses transport path, constituted by waste toner recovery pipes, which allows the waste toner from the plurality of locations to pass therethrough; a waste toner recovery container, attached to the exit of the transport path, which stores the waste toner in one lot; and auger axes, installed inside the transport path, which convey the waste toner toward the waste toner recovery container. Further, among transport distances from the respective locations to the waste toner recovery container, the transport distance from the location having the most waste toner to the waste toner recovery container is set to be the shortest.
