  • Publication number: 20200377833
    Abstract: A cell picking device includes a sucker having a pipette tip attached to a tip portion of the sucker and is used to suck the cell from a tip of the pipette tip, a driver configured to cause the sucker to perform a suction operation and move the sucker in a horizontal-plane direction and an axial direction of the pipette tip with the sucker inclined with respect to a vertical direction. A controller moves the sucker such that the tip of the pipette tip moves in a horizontal direction while being in contact with a bottom surface of the container installed on the sample mounting stage in a predetermined position on the sample mounting stage to desorb a cell arranged in the predetermined position from the bottom surface of the container, and suck the cell desorbed from the bottom surface of the container from the tip of the pipette tip.

  • Patent number: 10556292
    Abstract: An inexpensive bonding method is provided to bond materials constituted of an aluminum-based metal to each other at a low temperature and a low pressure while inhibiting deformation, without requiring the use of a flux and minimizing the influence on the base materials and the periphery. Also provided are various bonded parts obtained by the bonding method. An insert material comprising Zn as an element that undergoes a eutectic reaction with Al is interposed between two materials constituted of an aluminum-based metal. The two materials are heated, while being pressed against each other, to a temperature at which the eutectic reaction takes place, thereby generating, at the bonding interface between the two materials, a melt due to the eutectic reaction with some of the Al contained in the base materials and discharging the Al oxide films from the bonding interface together with the melt. Thus, the two materials are bonded.

  • Patent number: 9675951
    Abstract: A slurry treatment material containing solid particles mixed in liquid is finely pulverized, without using dispersion media, by flowing the treatment material into a vessel and through an annular fine gap formed between an inner wall of the vessel and an outer periphery face of a rotatable body mounted within the vessel. Rotation of the rotatable body subjects the treatment material to compression, expansion and shearing treatments. After passing through the annular fine gap, the treatment material flows into an ultrasonic chamber where it is irradiated with ultrasonic waves that break up and disintegrate agglomerated clumps of solid particles that may be present in the treatment material.
